You don't want to know what i've heard about those tires.
Plus what i've seen first hand.


Should have went BFG.

I have the same tires... No complaints here. I've also met three other people with the same tires in my work building, and they all love 'em.

I've seen they're almost un-balanceable
Heard they're just overpriced snow tires that are way inconsistent with themselves.

You can ask Justin about the ones he bought. He had to get another one because he couldn't balance it at all.
Around here i can get BFG A/T's for about $80 less a tire than those.

See trucks at work with them all the time. They didn't take very much to balance. I know tons of friends and people in general that run them and no issues. I had a BFG blow out for no reason no over loaded, nor under/over inflated. I remember you saying the BFG AT is amazing in the snow....Flat out terrible in the blizzard but may be the width.

I've had no issues with balancing these. I called the shop that mounted these and they told me the balancing of these went like butter.

I distinctly remember Justin having an issue with his.
I'll ask when i go to my local tire shop this week.

I've never had a problem with BFG A/T's, Snow, Mud, Gravel. I'd probably run KM2's if they could last 40k+ miles

I've just not heard anything good about them other than you guys. Goodyear isn't really known for off road tires. (See: NASCAR)
BF Goodrich is. Thats just how i see it.

lol aside the balancing issue, I haven nothing against Goodyear. Although i never ran a set on my truck, i had triple tread assurance tires on my car and they were great.

on a side note, im due for a 4 door tacoma lol

Duratracs is the expensive version of this tire. They are just an aggressive AT basically a MT but sold and marketed as a AT. I have no clue what it is, If it was my guess I'd say MT.
But here you go for a little bit of enjoyment

How moog sucks and I'll always use OEM. Very common failure on Tacoma and 4Runners. Lower ball joint failure. If you look at the link the results are identical.
Why? Read http://www.yotatech.com/f2/toyota-tr...ilures-244804/

Wow, didn’t you just lift this thing, too bad ?

They aren’t like a Ranger, lift a Ranger and it stays together, lol.

Actually, did you replace the ball joints when you lifted it ?

Dave, other than the front end falling off of your truck, how is that Toy holding up ???
What year did Toyota change to independent front suspension ?
Why do truck manufacturers listen to Yuppies that there truck don’t ride smooth enough, back to the Solid Axles…!

"ltr’g" in SoCal soon enough !

Yes just lifted the lift is fine. The lift did not cause the failure. Read the attached link it is a design flaw. Id like to see you wheel a ranger against a few yotas...Not gonna happen.

This is the first problem ive had and by the looks of it it's common failure but other than that it's a champ. An SAS on a tacoma is almost bolt on if you use toyota axles
