Stay with the KO2's in OEM size, but go with the 6 ply this time instead of the 10 ply. (10 ply is too harsh for a 4500 lb truck IMHO) Oh, & 1 other thing, Are you sure that the shop that is using the Road Force Balancer knows How to use it properly ? I'm not trying to be a smart ass with this question, but Toyota Wheels are the hardest to balance because of the large center hub diameter, & there are special inserts for RF balancing machines to fit the Toyota wheels perfectly.

I put Grabber ATX's on mine a week after I bought it. Loved them. Then after lifting it I decided to go to 285's. Went with the Wildpeak At3's in the SL load range. Probably my worst tire experience in probably 3 dozen sets of tires I have purchased. Spin balance 4 times, 2 road force. Truck shook like a total POS. Took them off and went with c load BFG's. Just as bad. And that's usually my go-to tire. 3 Days later put on Toyo AT3's. Smooth and quiet when they were new. Still smooth but my alignment is a bit off and they chop. it's been like 12-15k miles now and I still like them. They don't hold a candle to the ATX's in the snow though. I will probably go back to those when it's time to buy tires again.

I got rid of my KO2's C rated. Hard to balance, wore out at 39000 miles, and loud as they wore. Did have a nail in one tire as well, on the sidewall which Discount Tire wouldn't fix.

Right now I have Hankook Dynapro AT2 RF11's in 285/70R17 E rated. RF11 is a new version in 2020 with better traction advertised. I was worried about E but turns out not a problem with ride quality. Reasonable price, smoothest AT I have ever owned, very quiet, and snow and wet traction is supurb. Not as aggressive looking at the KO2 but I don't care in the least, the ride comfort is most important. Gas mileage is about the same even though they are heavier than the C load KO2s. I think the biggest hit to my MPG is my lift, wind resistance.

I was in the same boat last July. I liked the KO2's, but wanted to try something a little more aggressive.

I ended up with the Mickey Thompson Baja ATZ P3. I typically hit trails with a friend that has a FJ with 35' tires and is also running the ATZ P3's. He had no complaints and so I went off his recommendation, which i am glad i did.

With that said, there are a ton of people in LV that are running the Wildpeak AT's and seem happy with them. If i wanted to stay with a AT, it would have been between another set of KO2's or Wildpeaks.

Living in a rainy place w/ KO2's is not my favorite.

I have General Grabber ATX's on my Ranger....have to say they will be going on when the KO2's come off. They have been excellent!

I had wild peaks on my tacoma and they were great on that. Very reasonably priced too.

No one runs or likes the good year dura trac?
I have 60k on mine and still look good. Amazing on trails/rocks, good in snow and on sand, decent in rain. Still quiet on the road and no balancing issues.

I like my duratracs. Very good in rain and snow. 12k on them now but have certainly had balancing issues.

The KM3 recommendation could have used some more details though, LOL. I had the stock BFG MT's on my Rubicon, and never had any trouble with them. Bought a second set when the original set wore out. But I'm not really looking for an MT tire these days.
I just love the way they look.....and they're supposedly a pretty good mud terrain. Don't have much more detail for you hahaha

I ran KO2's or BFG MT's on my previous 4WD's with no problems. But with this set of tires, I've frequently experienced steering wheel shimmy/shaking. At times, repeated balancing and road force testing/force matching would not clear it up.

But, it seems that people who run other tires have had similar balance problems on their 4Runner, so perhaps the KO2's are not to blame?

I've never had a flat while four-wheeling with BFG's, which counts for a lot in my mind. OTOH, I never had a flat with the P-rated General Grabbers that came on my first 4WD (an Xterra)! (I upgraded to KO2's after they wore out.) It's hard to plunk down $ for another set of these KO2's after what I went through with this set.

So, I'm open to suggestions. I want to stay with the stock 265/70 R17 size. I don't have a lift or other mods. Most of my 'wheeling is in a desert environment: dry, lots of rocks, sometimes steep terrain. I do drop my tire pressure at times. I do prefer something M+S rated, just in case.
Cooper at3 XLT. we just went from ko2's to the coopers. love them.

The OP said he wants to stay with stock size. The smallest AT3 XLT in 17 inch are 285s.

I do like that tire though. I have had the AT3 4S which are very good. Would have gone with XLTs if they were available in 265 or 275.

Goodyear Ultraterrain looks like a good option. Doesnít seem to be much Goodyear love on this forum but Iíve never had any issues with GY products.
