    Type of driving? Mostly highway, in town, or off-road? Just got a 19 Tundra SR5 TRD Off Road. Installing a Toytec 3-1 leveling kit and putting new skins on. Done a lot of research, you may want to consider Nitto Ridge Grappler, or Terra Grappler. Many colleagues at work run either one, and they have nothing but good comments. I'm leaning towards the Ridge Grappler 295 70 R18. Good luck with your decision.

    I have 25000 miles on my K02's and have a set of ST maxx waiting to go on tomorrow. Having a balance issue with the k02's and the wet weather traction is steadily getting worse. Overall I'd say the BFG have been disappointing

    It’s just sucks 20” wheels have better size options than a 17” wheel, I prefer a skinny and tall tire. The only skinny tall tire for a 17” wheel is 315/70/17, 12.4 wide. 20” wheel has 275/65/20 a 34” tall tire, 10.8 wide like the stock 275/55/20. Anyways, I would go with the KO2’s if you Offroad a lot, street queen try the Michelin defender tire.

    Look into a 285/75/17, they are 34” tall but only 11” wide. If I ever go with a 17” wheel, that’s the size I’m going to run most likely.

    I’ve run the cooper AT with good results but now I run the Falken AT3 and love them. I do live off road so I need a good tire. South Dakota has crazy, unpredictable weather so I need something that fits those needs

    When the time comes, I'm going to give the xlts a try.

    There seems to be a common theme of wet traction issues with the k02s, which is a deciding factor for me.

    I have also read some negative reviews of the xlts on one ton trucks, regarding accelerated wear though...

    I’ve run AT/KOs and KO2s on multiple trucks for over 20 year and like them for their long tread wear and durability. I’ve had nails in them without knowing, and they still held air. But they’re not good in mud (need a real mud terrain for that) and they were slippery on wet roads. As their tread wore on over the miles, they got more slippery on wet roads. After 50K miles, they still had good tread, but became dangerously slippery on wet surfaces. Also, none of the sets I ever had could balance well.

    This time I went with Cooper Discoverer AT3 XLTs, mainly because they were cheaper. I like how they look and so far they do well on wet roads, but they’re still relatively new with only a few thousand miles on them. I haven’t taken them off-road yet, though. So I don’t know how they’ll perform in mud or going up steep ascents. As far as balance, at first they rode smooth as glass, but after about 50-100 miles I noticed a bad shimmy at 55-65 mph. The shimmy is worse than the slight shimmy I’ve had with every set of BFGs I’ve had. I need to take it back in for re-balancing. Just haven’t had time yet. I guess time will tell on tread life and wear.
