I searched for some good info on this topic, but didn't find much.

I have a completely stock 2002 TRD ext. cab Tacoma that needs new rubber. I'm looking to replace the BFG tires (keeping stock rims) with something comparable that give a good stable ride. Of course price is a factor also.

My driving is 90% on-road, but I don't want a totally street-looking tire. I've seen Tacos with lots of different tires, so I'm wondering what you all might suggest.

I've also priced tires on tirerack.com. Is that a good place to buy, or are there better vendors?

THANKS!

Tire rack seems to be a reputable dealer with great Customer Service, they have been able to answer all my questions with good info and website has tons of good articles!! Biggest issue buying tires is do not let the place you buy from put a bad tire on your truck, say one tire takes a group of weight to balance and the others do not i would tell them i do not want that tire and ya gotta rotate tires if ya expect them to last, and never let an idiot loose on your rims with an air ratchet and always make sure they were torqued to Toyota spec so your brakes will not be disstorted/warped!! Michellin makes good road tires, Goodyear makes good road tires and couple others!!go back to tire rack and check out their surveys on which tire people liked!! great info!!

I would reccomend the BFG All-Terrains 265/70/16. That's the same size as stock and they have a little more aggressive tread pattern.:tu:

some people experience rubbing with the 265/75/16 with no lift. I'm not sure if he has a lift kit but it sounds like he's stock.;)

I actually ran 265/75/16 Wrangler MTR's on stock suspension back when I had my 02 Tacoma. I had to remove my Donahoe coilovers before I traded it in. So for two days I was running that combo and I didn't have any rubbing at all, but my wheels were 16x8 with 3 5/8" backspacing. That's probably the reason why I had no rubbing.:cool:

I just put on a set Jetzon Trailcutter R/T's in 265/75R-16. They look great, some rubbing so far, haven't had it off-road......yet:) :)

I have an '03 Tacoma and ran the BFG till they wore out. They were a preety good tire. When I changed them out last year, went with the Bridgestone REVO P265 70R16. When these wear out, I'll buy another set...great ride, quiet, handles well and does real well on wet roads and ice
