90% of the time I'm on road. But they're often bad roads, with bad weather half the time. I mean city pavement with potholes, branches, flooding, snow, ice, rain, slush, etc. Some highway use as well.

10% off-road. Not rock crawling, but rather fire roads, dirt/mud, gravel, small rocky/rooty sections, water crossings (< 1 foot), etc. Basically just getting off the beaten path for camping, exploring, and mountain biking.
,


Your comments (and others') confirm my going with 265/75/r16 tire size.

- I'm assuming I should go with an All Terrain tire? (rather than a highway/all-season, or mud)

- As far as which specific tire to go with, sounds like you're saying avoid the K02s and go with Yokohama Geolandars?

- What's you opinion of General Grabber AT/X?

Thank you
Thank you for the compliment on my rig, honestly most of us are just like you we all like to think were offroad warriors but most of our driving is on road. I usually lean towards having amazing function for that 10% where I'm getting crazy and sacrifice the rest of the time
ie mud tires , I don't recommend them for most. I have three toyotas so I don't need a do all tire. But for a daily driver I'd go with the goodyear duratrac best tire only reason I don't run them is they don't have a three ply sidewall like most muds, but if your not extreme wheeling they are the best hands down mud /deep snow and ice traction (you usually can't have both), only down side is some tire hum , if you mind the hum next would be the goodyear ultra terrain same carcass(like a frame or internal build) as the duratrac but quieter. After that the cooper at3 Lt. Avoid the falken at3w , they are super popular on forums , some people have had good luck with them, but my company has replaced many for ride complaints or out of round specifically on toyota 4x4's falken is so aware of it they have a specific procedure for warranty replacements of that model. My two cents
Let me know if you have any questions.

I realized I never commented on the general grabbers , they're a decent tire I'd buy them over ko2s. Depending on price you find they would be a good option. Did you land on tire yet ?

Not yet. Still in the middle of this frame swap. Plus my current tires have a lot of life still. Iím more just thinking ahead since I know I want to run a 5-tire rotation

Just my .02 but I've hit some pretty gnarly shit in Virginia as well as AOAA and 265/75 has served me very well. I do air down but I've never been stuck and I do all the same wheeling you do. 295s IMO are overkill and your MPG will probably take a big shit and like you said youll need spacers and all that crap

If your really looking to go taller without much issue id say go for 255/85/16,
33x10 essentially. I'm looking of going that route once my wildpeaks are worn but 265/75 seems to be a sweet spot

Do you recommend the Geolandar A/Ts too or just the M/Ts? The M/Ts look pretty damn slick but myself and many others currently don't warrant mud terrains

They're actually really good , just make sure you get the LT version, no Pmetric because the p rated is a different tire completely.
They also make x-at which is a slightly more aggressive version but not a mud

Only cause you mentioned 285 KO2s. I can tell you I'm running a spare in stock location aired down to 15 psi and it rubs my pan hard and sits angled down at the rear bumper. It's fine for street driving but if I go offraod it gets pulled into the interior because it'll destroy any ground clearance in the rear. Rear bumper with tire carrier recommended if you jump to 285s. That's my plan.
