Second, I have not notice these KO2 road range E tires ride rougher than the OEM tires that came on my 4Runner. The KO2 tires actually have a bit wider tread than the OEM tires, even though they are the same size.

I have been very happy with my KO2 tires.

If you do much difficult off roading, I would suggest a good skid plate package (I have the RCI skids), and possibly a modest lift (I have 3" front, 1" rear "leveling" kit).
When I took my stock Limited with the 20" wheels offroad last year in Colorado, I was mostly concerned with tire damage. Since I did not have off road tires or aftermarket skid protection, I was very careful and did not have any problems although there were some scuff marks on the tire sidewalls.

I have a full set of skid plates now (just need to install them) and a lift may be in the future.
