I have K02s on my 15, and Revo 3's on our 18. The Revo 3s are an excellent road tire and can handle snow and off-road conditions well. Great rain traction too. My 73yo mother drives the 18 w/ revos and I haven't heard a peep about the tires.

I just bought the K02s, but I really wish I bought three Revo 3s instead. K02s in c load are noticeably rougher on the road than the Revo 3's. Hopefully they're a little tougher though, not that the Revo 3s aren't a tough tire.

I've been quite pleased with the "stock" Terra Grapplers on my '20 Pro. The road manners are really nice, they are a lot quieter than they look like they would be, and offroad is decent enough. I can see why Toyota decided to go with these as they do everything pretty well.

Yep. The dumb epa tests just force the manufacturers to build to the test. Once you're driving something underpowered you end up using way more throttle and getting poor mileage.

They just look so old and outdated and the massive chrome grill in the front. Performance and ride quality i know they are great. Nice to know tho

Another one for Falken Wildpeak AT3W. P rated. My wife didn't notice a difference from the OEM HT tires and the Falkens.

They are absolutely ancient, no doubt. It's part of the appeal for me. I keep telling myself to wait and see what the new Sequoia will have going on. Supposedly it'll be a new vehicle top to bottom, since it'll be made in a new factory. But I'm also worried they'll ruin it then I'll have to fight over the last remaining old model Sequoia.

Never know, they might do something great. I think it's more likely they turn it into a crossover...

Best tire

I believe the Defender LTX is the finest all season tire made, period. I would think that 99% of the time it would suffice. That is what I'm running on my wife's Tahoe.

That being said, I love my BFG KO2's on my 4R.
