    I am looking to upgrade my stock tires and wheels on my SR5 premium to the black TRD Wheels. I was wondering if anyone had any suggestions on what tires to upgrade to as well. I plan on staying on road most of the time with some light off roading here and there and some wet/ snow driving. I want the look of a beefier tire without the drawbacks of less gas mileage, road noise, etc... If anyone has any options that meet my driving needs and look 'tougher' than stock tires please leave some suggestions.

    Welcome!

    Tires are always a hot topic. Upgrading the wheels but staying with the stock tire size should not decrease your mpg. I installed Bilsteins and upgraded tires in stock tires and it has not affected mine.

    There are many options, though most seem to like BF Goodrich, Toyo AT, Falkens (can be difficult to balance for some), and others. Really depends on what look you want and what you are using them for. You stated road and light off road, so really, any A/T (or even most road) will meet your needs. I wanted BF Goodrich but local shop couldn't get them since they were backordered due to Covid, so I went with Toyo AT and am quite happy.

    Check out the wheels subforum and you will find tires threads for days. They are the oil threads of the motorcycle world.
