    Good quality only, want classic styled black wheels in the stock size and offset as the 2016 Limited comes with.
    Then fit it with new tires that aren't loud on the hwy but offer a little better traction offroad. Not mud tires or wild tires.
    Just a little more grip than stock andnin LT load range E.
    Thanks

    Good question Sean.
    I have an unlimited budget.
    The better quality stuff is never cheap.
    Hopefully I get great quality.

    If you want more of the A/T look, go with the KO2's or Nitto Terra Grappler G2's.

    Im with jburson 250 on this one! I have the Michelins on my truck, smooth ride,little if any road noise,and good in the snow.But doesnt have the aggressive offroad look! But that wasnt important to me.

    The 80 series cruiser wagon that we do a lot of overlanding with has the Toyo AT's...good handling, quiet for an AT, seem to be wearing good. Definitely a contender.

    As to wheels. I have always been a fan of factory wheels as they just seem to fit right and balance with no issues etc. Lots of nice stock wheels for sale here and on Craigs list.

    I went with the Cooper ST Maxx. Not a true all terrain, more of a hybrid between that and an off-road tire. No complaints at all on or off-road.

    Love the traction on wet-roads the most about them, and they are also pretty quiet.

    Not a huge fan of the KO2s. I have 40k on mine now and can't wait for them to come off. Heavy, hard to balance, and snow traction sucks in my opinion. I even siped mine, and that helped.

    Coopers, Hancook dyna pro atm, toyo, or my good ol' Michelin tires will go back on in a LR c or d. No more E rated on my Tundra.

    Tires, depends on what time of driving you mostly do. Dirt, Mud, Sand, Snow or Street ... seeing as how your in Canada your probably better off following the suggestion of the members who drive in condition like yours.

    Wheels, I believe that's a personal thing. What might look good to me might not work for you.

    Good luck, guess I really wasn't much help :facepalm:

    I just put these on my 2016. Have been running DuraTracs for years and was planning on them, but my tire guy swears by the Toyos. Says they last incredibly well. Time will tell on that. But so far I'm liking them a lot. Quietish on highway, but the treads clear out pretty well in the dirt.
