I've had great luck with Hankook Dynopro ATM's, 265-75-16.

KO2s. I wish I still had Falkens instead but the KO2s do alright off-road so I hate them less than I did when I first got them.

35” Milestar Patagonia MT. First time testing it on the ice and snow. No complaints and digging them.

Personally, I think anything with sidewall traction looks better than not. BF Goodrich KO’s are my favorite. Look great, great traction, tough as nails and long lasting.
Never, ever put the white lettering out! IMHO 😊

285/70r17 Toyo Open Country A/T are what came on mine.
They're working for me so far here in the desert.

In the next few months after my year end bonus, I'm probably gonna go with these:
4 New 265/70R16 Ironman All Country AT 265 70 16 Tires A/T | eBay
Find one of those regular 10+% eBay coupons and you can have them delivered to a local Firestone and mounted and balanced for barely over $400 total.
Owned by Cooper and have great reviews.

I don’t do hardcore off-roading, but I do go up to the mountains in the rainy season and winter time when snow is a regular occurrence, so when I bought my 4Runner that came with three different tires on it, I started looking for tires right away for tires that fit what I need them to do. I read reviews on this forum, and read reviews online, then started narrowing down the search, then where I can get them the cheapest.

I ended up taking a chance on the Cooper Adventurer A/T, which, from what I’ve read, is the same as the Discoverer, they’re just named differently with slight tread pattern difference to allow different stores to carry. I’m very happy with the decision so far. I’ve put about 3,000 miles on these, and they’ve met or exceeded my expectations. These are very quiet on the road, great on-road, on the trails, and in the wet. In snow it’s better than average, and average in the sand. But hey, I rarely drive in sand, and I’m not about to take my truck on a beach. Another reason I went with these was the price. Pep Boys was having a very good sale, so I went for it. OTD with and alignment was $763. I can’t beat that.

Define what you want out of your tires and then do your homework. The “looking good” part is a waste of time, tbh. No one will be impressed by what your tires look like. Tires are purely one of those form over function items. Getting you there and keeping your ass safe are far more important than impressing your friends.

I have BFG KO2 and for the minimal amount off off roading that I do, they are a total overkill. I do 99% of my driving on road and for that honestly they are pretty damn good. My two biggest issues with them are that they are very heavy 285/75/16 E load and wet weather performance, leaves something to be desired. They are not confidence inspiring on greasy roads or wet highways. That having been said the driving performance on dry roads is amazing. They perform with grippy traction on windy roads and at highways speeds. I also like the peace of mind that comes with such a sturdy tire, I know I can drive over all manner of things and not worry about my tires. I have pulled a nail and glass out of them, with no puncture at all to worry about. The KO2's also hydroplane easily.

I have driven a friends 2004 tacoma with General Grabber At2's in the same size. I think I prefer the Grabbers, they seemed to handle better in wet wether, they ride great on road as well. They are more than adequate off road and plenty for me. They don't wear at all, they look new after 20+k miles!
It seems like they don't make the grabbers anymore but next time I need tires, I will take a serious look at what general has, they make an excellent tire.

I also have a lifted Touareg with the Falken Wildpeak At3's and they are a very good choice as well. Again they outperform the KO2 in wet weather. The KO2 will clearly handle more offroad abuse than the wildpeak. But if I am honest again for my needs the wildpeak would be more tire than I actually need offroad.

The wildpeak is lighter than the KO2 and has slightly quieter and smoother on road performance. The KO2 is loud and stiff, you feel the road. That also makes it predictable in handling, you can oversteer, get the 4Runner sideways and not worry about loosing it. It is a very good handling tire in the dry. In the wet as I said before I don't like it one bit, but I probably drive more spiritedly than most 4runner owners.

I will get one more season out of my KO2's. 265x75 e rated. they are great off road.. however they do hydroplane and suck on ice so I don't run them in winter. they will get me through this coming (2020) the spring summer fall.
With all the back road driving I usually do...in the middle of noplace...its nice to have the e rated tuff tires and they really stick in dirt..mud..snow..just not ice
I prob have more miles on gravel then pavement and have never had a flat with these ko2's

One week ago, I purchased 4x of the newly launched (August 2019) Firestone Destination X/T in size LT255/75/17, load range C. A true 32" tire (32.1 x 10"), just 40 lbs, 3-peak mountain snowflake rated, 15/32 tread depth, 50k mile warranty. They are covered by Firestone's 90-day buy-and-try guarantee as well. Road Force balancing of all tires was issue-free, with minimal weights required. The branch manager said he'd noticed that one tire actually came up with an initial RF reading of one. He said he'd never seen that on an all-terrain tire. At 7 days in, I'm very happy with them. $795 otd w/o tax.
