PostSubject: good street tires/wheel combo   Thu Aug 15, 2013 5:51 pm

Well back when I had the Bridgestone Dueler 684II, I didn`t care for those tires and swapped a few times using Raceline Monster`s with Nitto TG`s (excellent combo for trail), and then Mastercraft MT`s on wheelers steelies for a while, those were very good in the pines, and now have been running Hankook ATM RF10`s on the stock wheels in Pizza cutter size of 255`s with ST spacers...

you can def feel the strain with the larger diameter tire with the AC on makes it worse. The very same reason why I got away from the 33`s and towing the boat. A gear change is a long way off, but something I`d like to do when the rig is a little older and I have another DD.

since any remote wheeling has taken a back seat (where we used to live the trails were literally down the road, so easy access anytime we wanted to cruise the trails)

BUT, the FJ is seeing a ton of street duty and the miles are racking up with travel and upcoming interstate travel.

I`m think what is a good sport truck tire and the Falken Ziex S/TX-04 comes to mind, in a 31.5 in diameter.
I`ve always had a second set of wheels to swap back and forth and sold most to make way for new... so who knows just yet...

I`m thinking a set of wheels for street duty, that Falken tire is sufficient for very good grip even on the boat ramps, I`ve seen a ton of sport trucks towing larger boats with street tires and no issues on the ramps...

so since we`ll be seeing a lot of street miles I was contemplating getting a street set now I`m seeing way more wet weather and roads, than dry, dirt and sand...

any thoughts?

I really enjoyed the General Grabber UHP on my Silverado, but I don't think they come in FJ sizing...  So ignore my post.

it all helps lol, I`m not going with a stock size. more of a sport truck tire size of 285/60/18 which will do the job @ 31.5" diameter...

Well, they had decent wear for a sticky tire, cornered exceptionally well and had great wet and dry traction for a 400+hp truck.  As high as my FJ is, I'd flip it with the stickiness of these tires combined with my center of gravity and driving style...

Unlike many people, I'm willing to sacrifice wear for exceptional traction since I feel safer when driving on the street.
