    Stay with "P" series for the best mileage. Hankook ATM RF10 or Cooper AT3 are excellent choices for all-terrain. You can't beat Michelin LTX M/S for highway. 255/70/18 (32.2" x 10.3") is Tundra's stock narrow tire compared to the optional 275/65/18 (32.2" x 11") wider tires. Narrow gets better mileage. Moving to "LT" 10-ply adds another 10 lbs, which slightly impacts mileage. You'll see the hardest hit to mileage with mud tires. Plan on losing a couple mpg with those heavier, high rolling resistance tires. Good luck.

    Bottom line, 255/70/18 with Michelin LTX M/S will get you the best mileage and life.

    If you go off road at all or have snow conditions then I would recommend the BF Goodrich All Terrain K/O tires. These tires have great traction and I got 50,000 miles out of mine with rotation every 5,000 miles. They may not be the best for MPG but they are great tires.
    No amount of success at work, can make up for failure at home.

    I'll put in a vote for the Cooper AT3's. I have the Cooper ATR's (the older version) on my Tundra and the AT3's on our Sprinter van. They have both worked out very well for mileage and traction.

    Just recently purchased a set of Michelin LTX A/T2s for mine. On the pricey side, but a great tire. Very comfortable ride. You can't beat the 60K treadwear warranty.

    I put the Cooper AT3 on mine. Someone posted that Consumer Reports rated them #1 for A/T tires

    +1 on the Cooper AT3s

    20,000 miles in 1.5 years. 90% tread left.

    Great for Minnesota winters. I bought them the day after they were available to replace my ATRs. I did get high-centered on a 4' drift last winter, but no tire would have helped.

    That being said, my wife's Subaru with Cooper Weathermaster snow tires puts all trucks to shame in the snow. Seriously, it's funny.

    Thanks for the comments....General Grabbers are on national back order. It's between the Michelin LTX A/T 2 and the Bridgestone REVO Dueler AT2.....thoughts? Oh yeah....wanting to stay with a "P" rated fire for the best gas mileage.

    Thumbs up to Michelin LTX and Toyo A/T, especially the new Toyo A/T II. Thumbs down to BFG A/T, which were half worn after only 20K miles, were bad in snow, and had a noticeable loss in traction after the first 15K miles.
    07 DC SR5 TRD 4x4 5.7 TRD exhaust, 85K miles. Truxedo Lo-Pro with deck rails. Front Susp: Stock coilovers, 4" lift (http://www.tundrasolutions.com/forum...6-4-inch-lift/), swapped extra spacers for Bilstein 5100s on lowest setting, wheel well height still 41.5." Rear Susp: ProComp ES3000 #326510 (2.25" taller than stock), 1.25" blocks plus PRG mini-pack (http://www.tundrasolutions.com/forum...and-new-truck/) gives 2.25" total lift, parking brake cable bracket spacers, wheel well height 43." Front diff and rear ds drop; trailer hitch electrical harness tucked up above bumper. After 21K miles swapped 305/65/18 BFG AT for 285/75/18 Toyo AT, still on stock 18x8x60 offset TRD wheels, about 1/8" clearance to sway bar. Like the extra height but miss the width. Added 5th 285/75/18 Toyo AT as spare. 75K went to new 285/75/18 Toyo AT II. Bed Bounce: Stiffer E-tires are worse than stock P-metric; biggest improvement from PRG mini-pack, slight improvement from shocks. Still a stiff ride but tolerable now. Best things about this truck: 5.7 and transmission, interior size and comfort, very quiet at high speed. Worst things about this truck: bed bounce, no VSC in 4wd, mileage sucks above 70. SOLD 8/2013

    Yokohama geolander AT-s are a great tire for the money. ran mine about 60k before they were worn out mixed dirt and highway driving.

    I've been using nitto trail grapplers 37x12.50x20 for 3 1/2 years on the first set, these tires have been amazing. I just replaced 2 of them with 3/8" tread still left on them. These tires have been excellent in all driving conditions, I have zero complaints. For a mud tire design they are almost totally silent thats incredible. I drive 70% on pavement, and the rest off-road. I've never been stuck with these tires they pull thru everything as long as your air pressure is around 20psi, I run 45 psi on the pavement. I have tried nitto mud grapplers and they lasted 8 months, nitto terra grapplers were the worst at 7 months, I totally recommend the trail grapplers as long as you rotate and keep up on the air pressure regularly.
