Got new tires put on yesterday. 😁 Went a size up to 225/65/17 in an Armstrong Tru Trac AT. Tires were right around 31lbs each. Tread pattern aggressiveness is between a Wild Peak trail and a BFG KO2. Slight hum at speed, and sturdily constructed. 60,000 mi. treadlife warranty. I got an awesome deal on eBay for $348 for all four shipped! I’ve seen these other places for around $120 each, so I couldn’t pass up a good deal lol. Tread depth is 13/32”. I have an ADF 1” lift kit coming this week, as well as Subtle 3/8” front and 1/4” rear spacers. Will definitely post pics when I finish installing the lift. I already trimmed the front splash guards, as I had rubbing turning in reverse. I’d say they’ll have to come off when the lift goes on, but we’ll see.

Looks good!!!!
Never seen those before.
I think I’m gonna do 225/65r17 Toyo Open Country AT 3’s

I have The Open Country MTs on my 4Runner. I was blown away. Never thought I’d like anything other than BFG.
The Toyo AT3 in tgat size is only 30lbs if I recall and plenty aggressive.

I'm interested in the Toyos too. I think they're 3peak rated, correct?

yeah 3 peak

Yours look really knobby with nice deep voids. Should be noticeable traction!

is be curious to see how these deflect. Full pressure back 20psi, vs 15psi, vs 10psi.

That’s awesome! I just got a 2016 3.6r and want to put AT tires on it. Are there all terrain tires I can put on the stock wheels?
Yes, there are several popular choices - the Falken Wildpeak A/T Trail, the Toyo Open Country III, the Yokohama Geolandar G015, either in 225/60-18 SL or 235-60-18 XL

the stock size is 225/60r17

without a lift you can fit 225/65r17

all terrains in either size will fit no problem.
Even with a lift that seems to be the sizes, unless you want to start removing or trimming mud flaps.

These cars don’t have a ton of mods available. So I think a worthy investment would be a set of street wheels and tires and a different set with all terrains.
For an in between set I love the BFG Asvabtage T/A

I used the AT for over a decade on my 4Runner. Probably had 4-5 sets BFG .ATs are great

The toyos are tough too. The sidewalk actually has two styles based on the size you get. I think the metrics have a slightly tamed version of the sidewall, from what I read.
it was a noticeably lighter tire, so that’s what caught my eye.

you’ll be totally stoked with the BFG AT, it’s hard to beat.

The tread looks aggressive, though I'm not familiar with those tires. How's their sidewall strength?

I went with BF Goodrich KO2'sThey work great in dry and wet roads. There's a little noise but that's what to expect out of all-terrain tires.
Just feeling the sidewalls before they were mounted, they’re beefy. Much sturdier than the all seasons that were on it.

The stock size is 225/65/R17 for non-limited versions, and a lot of people can fit 245/65/R17 without a lift and rubbing. I did.
