Hey guys, finally replace the Dunflops on my Purple People Eater, I got the Dueler A/T REVO 265/70-16 with UNI-T AQII Technology, whatever that is. Best rated tire that I could find. Bridgestone Revo 265/70-16

Look at the numbers on these tires, they are really something:

88 4runner SR5
Trail master/ rancho 9000rsx
4" lift
16" RIMS
33"x12.5"x16r BFG AT

Onroad: some strong tracking at high speeds. They squeal easily. The tire noise is not excessive but they're certainly not quite. Tread life is moderate.

Offroad: perform quite well on rocks and snow. Havn't tried a lot of muddy trails yet. Sand ability is suspect, although blame should way more heavilly on the lack of 4wd due to broken autohub.

I would only recomend for a more aggressive dry terrain offroader.

1998 4Runner SR5 4x2
Downey Coil-Overs / Bilstein & Rancho RS9000 suspension
Lifted 3.5"
V6 / Auto
Stock 15X7 wheels
31/10.5/15 ProComp MT

Fitment Problems: None

Wheels: No issues, stock rims on this configuration clear all.

On Road: Good handling, highway noise is moderate to high (much more than my stock tires - but I REALLY LIKE that!), AWESOME wear for a M/T (25-30% of tread remaining at 40,000 mi. plus.)

Off Road: No real experience yet

Overall: This is my daily driver and it runs great. The tires are fine and will most likely hit 55,000+ miles. However, I have new rims and tires on order that will be mounted the first week of August. So I will never know how much more the ProComps would've lasted.

SIDE NOTE: I'll be selling my stock wheels, my 31" ProComps & 4 BRAND NEW stock tires. I will be posting photos soon as well as pricing. They will be REALLY cheap!

1995 Toyota 4 runner limited v6
Standard- 5 on the floor
Suspension: Cheap aftermarket 1" lift coil springs with Rancho 5000 Back and front.
Tires: 32 11.50 BFG Mud terrains on factory 15x7 aluminum rims
I love these tires. No problems rubbing. Excellant tires on the trail/make your own trail. Less noise on the pavement than my wife's BFG AT KO's. Makes the truck handle much better than the factory 31 10.50 that I bought it with.
Mud's stink on snow and I get horrilbe gas mileage. Less power as well.

Body Damage is Cool
'99 4Runner ARB lockers, OME N86/N91 SC, Daystar 1.5" and airbags, Camburg arms, Stock wheels, 4.10 gears, automatic, Lots of other junk

285/75/16 Dueler AT Revos: inside fender trimming and pounding, Increased steering stops. Rubs a bit here and there when flexed out. Rides pretty quiet and comfortable. Good wear. Great traction in the rocks.

265/75/16 Dueler AT 693: Quieter than the Revo but niether are loud and I'm picky. Very minor rub with no suspension mods. Great ride and wear on the street. Just as great in the rocks. These LT tires have strong sidewalls and good puncture resistance.

265/70/16 Wrangler RTS: Quiet on the street. Surprisingly decent traction offroad. Poor wear and ride when they've worn some. Stock size so no fittment issues.

Getting the Wheeling Fever
I hope it's ok to ask on a "sticky" thread but because I'm coming off a Suburban when gas was $3.00+ I still have a concern over gas mileage. How much difference in MPG does an aggressive tread affect? I don't do a whole lot of off road (I do every weekend)but when I do, 4x4 is definitely needed here in the northwest as much is mud because it rains often with snow in winter. I'm thinking of going to Costco. Here's their tire selection: Costco tires - If you don't mind, what are your opinions? Metric tire sizes confuse me. I'm used to inches. *edit - I hear these tires are great!

*just bought a stock sr5 2002 4runner w/16" - former '91 owner

im running a stock 94 3.0 5 spd with 33x10.50's the only mod i had to do was take off the running boards ( ugly in my opinion anyway ) and take off about 1/2 an inch at the rear bottom corner of the front bumper.

no lift no problem i have no rubbing problems even at full lock in reverse up or downhill <img src="/forums/images/graemlins/nana.gif" alt="" /> <img src="/forums/images/graemlins/nana.gif" alt="" />

ok you guys talked me into the Bridgestone REVO's. Firestone tire store is having a buy 3 get one free and $75 rebate. I'm going for the 265/75/16 on my stock 2002. I'll edit with fitment issues, etc.

Edit -
1. Rubs only driver's side running board on pavement. I might as well take both off.
