    I like the Firestone Destinations AT's the the MT's are even more bad-ass

    second that. Just got a set for my 2005 Toyota Tacoma. And make sure they are Revo's. They have a bridegestone duler a/t tire that is very similar but not the same

    They are a little pricey, i bought my first set three years ago for about $550. I just got my new ones in November and paid $900 with a free oil change. Cheapest i could find but they are load range E and perform great on street and off road. More tire than my truck
