    Looking to get some new shoes for my 4Runner.

    Thinking BF Goodrich KO2's or Toyo r/t? Other tire you would recommend? This is my daily driver and Off Road toy.

    Any reccommendations on 3in lift would be helpful as well. I'm new to this. I want something nice, but I don't need anything too fancy.

    I really like my KO2's, but there is a big part of me that knows I could've saved a good chunk of change buying the General Grabber AT2's instead.

    About to mount my 4th set of KO2's in January. They have been my favorite over the years. Daily driver in town but they never disappoint when I'm up in the mountains in summer/winter

    I just put 275/17s E load on my wife's 2015 Metallic gray SR5. Love them! The stock Dunlops always suck, and these make all the difference. Also, just took it to Mammoth and no more wandering, much firmer ride, and no negative effect on MPG that I noticed. Look great too! Got a heck of a deal on 'em at Big Brand, about 800 bucks for Black friday, so that didnt hurt either.
    Good luck!!!

    Horrible picture! My apologies,was just trying to get a pix at the installer. Had the TRD's mounted at the same time. Found on ebay brand new for $695; SO MUCH BETTER THAN SR5 WHEELS!!!!

    Had two sets of Toyos on my Mitsu Outlander. Great tires. The first set lasted 60,000+ miles and the 2nd set had only 30,000 on when I traded. Our new '16 4R Canadian Trail came fitted with 4 Goodyear Wrangler Duratracs and they have proven quiet and steady on the 4 lanes so I'm looking forward to trying them off road and, maybe this weekend, in snow. - Ted

    I have had my KO2's for about 15,000 miles. I absolutely love them. Great for everyday and off-road. And they look great. I will definitely buy another set once it's time.

    Yup, this is my 4th set of KO2 tires on two different 4runners over the years. Love them all around.

    Also just put the grey TRD 17" wheels on with this set!

    Nitto ridge grapplers are the best tire I have ever had that can do it all.

    Have had lots of chances to try the Duratacs in the last 3-4 weeks while up to our ass in snow. They are as good in 9-10" of snow as they are on paved highway. Great tires. - Ted
