So I am reading about these:

1. TOYO Open Country® A/T

2. BFG All-Terrain T/A® KO

3. Mickey Thompson Baja ATZ Radial Plus

4. General Tire Grabber™ AT2


I'm leaning towards 35x12.5x15. I may consider a narrower tire if available.

Opinions?

Oh, and my estimate of off road time was off, I am probably closer to 95% on road, but I hope to pick up a second car this summer and transition the 4Runner into a bad weather DD and weekend wheeler!

Good size.
Now put a Toy V6 in that rustbucket and you won't worry about lugging them around.

I plan on running the Toyo Open Country MT on the DD 80.

When time comes to replace my tires I am going to look at Toyo, Truxes and one other brand, name escapes me. i like my MTR's but there are better tires out there for off road. Since we drive the 4Runner less than 2K a year and run about 10-15 trails a year we can afford to go more aggressive and forgo the MPG etc.

If price was not an option i would buy the Toyo's first then most likely the MT's and the General. I nearly got a set of generals before the MTR's but they could nto find the correct size. Since I am running 15" rims tire choices are getting less and less. No big deal but it does cause a first choice to be eliminated sometimes.

Pick a tire and go one more step aggressive, you won't notice it that much.

Good point on the 15s. If I didn't already have the tires, I would have gone 16 or 17 when I bought the beadlocks.
