Tires!

Postby quackattack1991 » Tue May 01, 2007 10:06 pm

I am getting my parents car. It is a 1995 4 runner. The tire just blew out and they were pissed and want to get new ones. It is mine at the end of the summer and they said I can help choose. I want to get some big ones with some deep treads. I don't really know much about cars just looking for some help.

Does this 4 runner have a lift, do you plan to do some serious muddin. You could either go with some swampers, mud terrians, baja claws or just some BFG's ATs

what size wheels does it have? how much road time versus offroad time does it see? do you care about road noise? do you ever carry a load or tow anything?

are you leanign towards a mud terrain, or do you use it for the beach?

what is yoru budget?

itll proablly see 75% road and 25% off road. Not to worried about road noise. The only thing i tow il like a 12 ft john boat. The wheels are 19ins and tryin to stay kind of low but price isn't that big of a deal

19 :huh: maybe 17 For driving on the road most of the time but still a very agressive tire my vote goes to the cooper mud terrain. The last set I had on my yota lasted for ever, a little noisy but plenty beefy and good wearing.
If they're dumb enough to be lured in by plastic you're really just doing them a favor.

Know your target before you pull the trigger.

If it was me I'd just put a nice set of AT's on it and be done. I assume you're in high school, so if you don't have a full time job or your parents aren't willing to help you buy new MT's every 12 months stick with AT's. They'll do the job in most situations and will last twice as long as MT's.

Might double check that wheel size. Not too many 19s floating around out there.

I have had very good luck with several brands. I would also go with an AT since you aren't off road too much. I usually get MTs, but tread life is lost. I'm thinking of getting some BFG Commercial tires for 3 season driving, and stick MTs on when the season hits. Just gonna have 'em mounted on a different set of wheels.

I understand that would be hard to do now, but something to think about later.
