I've been happy with Nitto Ridge Grapplers. Drove on them to Montana and back last fall and they came in real handy during an early snow storm on the passes.

Bfg will be better off-road. Toyo probably last longer. Depending on where you hunt the toyo would probably work just fine but if itís black gumbo or east Texas red good luck getting anywhere with them. My brother had them on a Jeep and rain combined with east Texas red dirt was a disaster. Itís hard to pick a tire that will be good for every situation so Iíd go with what it will be used for mostly.

I have had Toyo At II's on my Tundra and they work great and last a very long time, way longer than the Nitto Grapplers that I had before. I have Cooper tires on it now and they work well but are getting noisy on the road.They are lasting a long time also. I will go back to the Toyo tires next time.

Run KO2 on my Tacoma. Ride is good and got me out of slippery situation on a CR last weekend. Had to engage the locker, was headed south real quick. They held their own in some slippery, sloppy stuff.

I like the BFG KO2s for puncture resistance and ride quality, generally get ~55K out of them so not a super long life Tire.

Depending on what truck, that actually not terrible. I put 55k on my last set and couldíve hit 60k if I hadnít picked up a piece of metal. Thatís in a 2014 Ram weighing in just over 8,000 pounds. I consider 55k pretty good for a heavy truck. I wonít venture away from the BFGís, they have done me well the past 15 years.

My last set of BFG's lasted about 20k plus on my Superduty. No real tread depth left at 1 year old, always rotated them too, Very disappointed.

The only reason I left KO2s was for the KM2. Itís a very impressive tire so far but only have 12k on them. Best mud tire Iíve owned and hopefully as puncture resistant as the KO2s. Rode the lease this weekend after clear cutting and was sweating some the stobs. No tire damage. Iím impressed. They are not cheap.

Have the KO2's on my Tundra. Very good tires. First set went 70k, this set is about the same but still has lots of tread left. Nice riding tire, gets pretty noisy towards the end of their lives.

Toyos just gave out on my F250 at 42,000 miles just last week. Trying Hankooks this time. The Hankooks are a little bit quieter and smoother on the highway.

Toyo AT II last week:

I've got KO2s with just over 20K on the Tundra and wear is very good so far. Plenty of folks get 60k to 70k+ regularly. I run over mesquites and pear with no issues. I rather have peace of mind than a flat. Heard others might be better for winter though.

I have the BFGs on my F150 and they ride smooth at 85 and have taken me all over our deer lease...
Never had them in REALY bad mud. I keep a 95 4Runner at the lease with more aggressive tires that gets used most of the time.

IF you want a real aggressive tire that will go anywhere get the Toyo Open Country MT's, they are a true mud tire but also the best tires I have ever run.
I have a set of 35/12.50/20 right now on my truck and have 44,000 miles on them and still have over 5/32"s of thread on them.

Very good road manners, quiet for a mud tire and have lasted longer than any other tire I have ever ran, I run around in town mostly, only on the highway during hunting season so I never get good life out of tires until these.

My last set of Nitto Terra Grapplers only lasted 38,000 for comparison.

I have ran 2 sets of BFG all terrains after I was done with the factory set on my 2004 Sierra Z71. The first set got around 90k miles with about 4/32nds left but they were starting to chunk some of the tread from being that old and hardened. The second set I just checked them the other day while I was doing my oil change and rotation. They are at 9-10/32nds and looking back at mileage they are at 71k right now. I bought them in 2014.

Most people don't believe me but I rotate or rotate and balance them every oil change so they never get a chance to get a chop to them which wears them out and make sure your alignment is good.

I believe you, about what I have gotten with them on an avalanche and suburban, put them on a f250 psd and they are done at 30k(two different sets)

I have the BFG KO2's on my Nissan Frontier 4X4. They are not cheap, but I did get what I paid for. They were the most aggressive AT tire I could find. I replaced some mud tires. The MT's worked well, but came with the price of loud road noise, and a rough ride. Unless you drive in mud all the time, I suggest the KO2's.

OEM KO2s on current Tundra and previoUs Tacoma. When they need to be replaced I will go with Cooper ST Maxx. Best AT out there. A whole lot better in mud than the BFGs. I ran a set on Tacoma for 30k and no problems.

I made that exact step once from KO2s to ST Maxx. The ST Maxx was way better in the mud. They were also squirly as hell when I hit the brakes hard or carrying a heavy load. I also had 3 flats with them on my truck. Every flat was simple stuff thatís always still stuck in the KO2s when theyíre worn out and still fully inflated. For me I went back to BFGs except KM2s this time. Hopefully they will be as durable as the KO2s with a lot more traction. 12k miles in so far. Way more traction. NO flats.

The ST Maxx being squirly on a diesel will likely not show its face on a Toyota weighing much less.

Goodyear Duratracs are also a good compromise between an AT and MT but sidewalls are suspect at least in the load range I ran.

Dave,

I have had two sets of the Toyo AT IIs on different vehicles. I just pulled a set of of my wife's 4Runner this week. My experience with both sets were similar. They were great when new, but something about the rubber compound seems to weather crack prematurely. Also, after about 20K miles they seem especially susceptible to nails/flats, granted, both sets were standard load.

I have been buying the Cooper Discoverer AT3 for the last few years. I run 10-plies on my Tundra and 4Runner, and went with 6-plies on my wife's 4Runner, because she is sensitive to ride quality. They have great highway manners, are pretty decent in the mud, and they are EXCELLENT in the rain, snow, and ice. It helps my feelings that they are made in the USA and are reasonably priced - my last 3 sets have been between $590-770 OTD depending on size, ply, and rebates.

Victor and Jonathan at King's on 3rd and Q have blown every other tire dealer away on price in Lubbock. If Aurther answers, ask for the other two. Victor will give you a no B.S. price right off the bat - no pricing games. The were $60-120 cheaper than everyone else on my wife's tires a coupe of days ago.

I currently run 285/60/20 on mine. Never owned any other(had them on my Tacoma before). I'll say in mud they are kick [censored]. I've only had to deal with snow/ice a couple times and they seemed okay. My only issue is they wore very uneven. I feel like I can blame my alignment guys 100%, but you never really know I guess. I've gotten roughly 35k out of them and the outside edge of one is basically smooth. Inners are almost new so I feel like if aligned properly, they'd go a good 50k which I'd be very happy with. I would rotate and align at every oil change(about 6k/6mos for me b/c I don't drive a ton).

If you are looking for the brand recommendation, I'd recommend looking into a set of Toyo tires. At the moment I've got BFGs on my truck, but they are more for off-road. If you are saying you plan on using your Tundra as a daily driver the majority of time, I'd consider Toyos.
