He didn’t have anything used in my size tho (235 R75 15). Got 4 new Patagonias for 575 out the door. I tried the place in San Rafael, closed. Wanted to try JO in Richmond. Closed. Called Costco today to verify if they would put tires on non-standard rims, 30 minute telephone hold and I ain’t got time for that bc of my bronchitis. Big O didn’t have anything in my size at least on website.

AFM had best advice but I needed to just get this done because of my full time job. But for the price, I ended up getting a good deal even if its overkill. I considered Orozco too but I wasn’t sure I was going to have much selection.

Thanks to all. BARF always delivers. I felt like I had better info to make this decision.

For a truck like that, I probably would have checked FB Marketplace. Probably could have found a set of wheels and tires for under $200 total.

I have a 1990 Toyota Pickup and it’s what I’ll do when the time comes.

Lol, I’m doing this with my 2011 Tacoma next month. So many OEM wheels w new tires on FB for less than the cost of good new tires. It’s probably somewhat a Toyota thing. They haven’t changed the bolt pattern in a while.

Americas Tire. They have some smokin' deals. Just don't let them try to sell you a bunch of 'add-ons'; ie, flat repair warranty, etc..

Thanks. We're not all crotchety old guys with lots of time on our hands. If I was still working, I would have done the same thing. Orozco will always get you what you want, but you pay a small premium for that.

My truck currently has Mazda truck wheels, so thereís another option for you if you canít find OEM Toyota wheels.

I know it's not the 2.3 four, it doesn't have enough torque to turn those.

30x9.50-15 work well on 4banger trucks and they more often fit without a lift.

Yeah, 31s seem like a lot of tire for a small truck.

Though I'll second the BFG KO2 for a good all-around. Most sizes of them are Severe Snow Service rated.

I've driven those tires in some pretty nasty conditions and they are notably better than other AT tires I've had on snow/ice.

I was a BFG fan for a long time but now run Pro-Comp ATs on my Ram 1500. They are excellent and have a 50k treadwear warranty that I wasn't able to get on the BFGs when I switched over (no idea if they've added one since.)

I had the KO2s for ~45k miles and could have gotten another 5k out of them, and they were awesome in deep snow in Tahoe, but for the other 90% of my driving they were loud and had a pretty decent amount of vibration.

The Defender LTX's on the other hand are supposedly almost as good in snow (at least, mild snow and plowed roads with a dusting) and much better the rest of the time regarding smoothness of ride + road noise, plus have a 70k mile warranty vs 50k. So I went with them this time around.

I'm thinking of going cheapo on my next set 2008 Silverado 1500 4x4, 285/70-17 pathfinder AT at discount tire. Just normal truck stuff, and snow. Oh lots of snow.

Change my mind.

i also rock the KO2s, good traction and not too obnoxious when it comes to noise (they're pretty quiet when new, less so when worn), i also find they need to be rebalanced at least once before going through a set
