#1 of 103 Tire shopping for my 2001 Tacoma TRD
Jan 24, 2006 (9:53 pm)
I recently had a blowout on the left rear of my '01 TRD double-cab, and was wondering the best on-line prices for a replacement tire (oem). I already checked a few tire places here in the SF Bay Area, and more than one said that that tire has been discontinued (but they'd be more than happy to sell me a full set of updated replacements...gee, who woulda' thought?). I currently am using my spare but don't want to place further unecessary mileage on it. Can someone point me in the right direction for a replacement tire that costs less than the $160 these guys are asking? Thanks!

#3 of 103 anyone running Firestone Destination AT tires on Tacoma
Mar 26, 2006 (5:52 am)
I am shopping around for a new set of tires and located Tirerack.com and did some research and found raving reviews from owners about Destination ATs for perfomance looks and price. I would like to find some input from Tacoma owners whom have these tires on thier trucks and what they think about this tire. My personal criterias are #1 any loss of miles per gallon in using these as compared to the original equipment tires,on tireracks website the specs are 2 lbs.heavier for the Destinations than the stock wheels,does this extra weight noticably lower the mpg's? #2 How is the look of the tire mounted,A tougher looking off road stance other than the wimpy oem look,I want a thicker looking tread design, but not rock crawling mud-terrain tire I am sticking to the oem size P265-70r16 mounted on Aluminum alloy TRD rims.Most of my driving is on road highway and very light offroad.#3 By all accounts on tirerack website reviewers gave this tire raving reviews on handling in all terrains and exceptional quiteness on the highway for a AT tire and the price is right,I would just like feedback from some Tacoma owners about thier experience with these tires because I dont think I can go wrong if they meet the criteria above for my needs. If anyone could suggest another better tire they have used please post. Thanx

I replaced my original Dunlop 265/70x16's with Bridgestone Dueler AT Revos. These tires are, to say the least, incredible. Best tires I've ever owned. Period.

I researched the Firestone Destination AT last spring for my '95 Tacoma 4x4, and actually went in the store to buy them ... everything seem okay, but I waivered in the end, mainly because I wanted to mount the blackwall side out ( I can't stand raised white letters, period ). The blackwall side of the tire did not have a rugged enough look for my taste. Turns out, it was the best decision I ever made on tires, because I drove away with the Bridgestone Dueler AT Revo's. I can't begin to tell you folks how awesome this tire is !! It is worth the extra $220 ( for the set ) to me. I do 80% of my driving on city streets now, and the tire pressure can be lowered to the 32-34psi range for a super soft ( and unbelievably quiet ) ride. If you are carrying a load, just bump them up to 38-42, and tow away. Without a doubt the best tire I've ever driven.

I totally agree with your assessment of this tire. I replaced the older model Bridgestone Dueler 31x10.5x15, with the computer-designed Bridgestone Dueler AT Revos.
They are awesome tires for the highway, even though the tread pattern remains very aggressive.

"computer-designed Bridgestone Dueler AT Revos"
Is anything mass-produced not computer designed these days?

i bought a tacoma 4 door prerunner TRD 4-24-06 and had a set of firestone destination ATs ( P265-70r16 )put on the very next day. they were strongly recommended by a good friend of mine who works at a auto shop. i've never in my life been more satisfied with a tire. it's aggressive enough to give my truck a little more flavor, but at the same time very quiet and smooth on the road. it was also inexpensive and kept me from going broke on tires. i havent tested the gas mileage yet but as soon as i do i'll let you know.

Please post when you get the gas mileage stats because for me this will be the reason to buy or not to buy Firestone Destination ATs,I know everyone loves Desert Dueler Revos and am sure they great but I also know you'll lose 2MPG's with them and with gas prices soaring I dont want to lose any MPGS if I can. Stock tire weight is 37lbs.,Destination AT weigh 39lbs.,Revos are 41lbs. I think,this extra weight plays into gas mileage numbers. If any body has MPG stats for AT or other on/offroad tires please post your results will be definetly appreciated.

I find it hard to believe that 16 pound heavier tires will drop the mileage at all. They couldn't sell any if that was the case. Getting into the mud boggers might have an effect due to the style, but the revo is not a radical tread. I know for a fact that my Tundra did not lose any mileage with them installed after the stocks wore out.
