    I am very familiar with them haha. I will most likely be grabbing my coilovers and uppers from them today or tomorrow.

    I have a connection Method to get their wheels at racer cost so I order my wheels direct.

    I used to work at Discount tire when I was younger so I have connections there to get my tires.

    Yeah they are awesome. We race a spec trophy truck so having a good radio in my truck is a must. I’ve had this radio for a few months and had it installed in the last truck. Just need to figure out how I want to mount it this time around.

    Okay, let’s get some input from everyone on tires. Size will be 35/12.50/18. I am working on deciding between the below...


    BFG At KO2

    Toyo At2

    Toyo RT



    Really like to stick with toyo or bfg, and I really don’t have a need for a full on mud tire. I had the rts on my tacoma and wasn’t impressed with them, but I’m thinking the heavier truck may solve the traction issues I had.


    Let’s hear it and why you vote what you vote!

    I've looked into some tires recently. The ones you're considering all seem good. Only thing I'd add into the list that I think is leading the others in my mind through reviews I've read is the Falken Wildpeak

    Are you running them? How do they perform on the tundra in rain?

    I think my tacoma was so light, it would just slip and break traction everywhere (on the road) when it rained.

    Yeah I had them on for 20K miles and they still looked brand new. They did great in all weather conditions. I went from an 18" rim to a 17" rim so I bought new tires. (Toyo MT's, which are my favorite tires. The RT's are a close second) If I were to run a 37" tire I would definitely run the RT due to the weight.

    Good feedback. The consensus seems to be that they work well on the tundra. I was happy with them on the tacoma (other than the wet traction) so I may just do those again. I gotta see what type of deal I can get on the BFG’s. It may make sense for me to rub with those if the deal is good enough.

    RT but I will say the death of the RT is rain and wet roads. Everything else is awesome but with that compound it has its faults. I still love mine regardless
