Do you recall if they were the "DT" tires or the severe weather rated?

I went with the AMP Terrain Pro tires in the stock size. The are the same 33" tires as the SRA crap ones and are e-rated and are severe rated with the snowflake on them. They are an exact match to the K02 tread pattern, but have a 60k mile warranty and a lower price. K02's do not have a mileage warranty.

What do you mean by "DT" tires? They have the little snowflakes on them

Try this site...

https://www.tacomaworld.com/tirecalc

You can plug in your stock tire size and any you want to consider, and it shows the diff in your Speedo so you can decide to bother with that or not.

I’m moving from stock to 35x12.5x20’s, so the difference is only 4mph at 65mph. Therefore not worth it to me to recalibrate.

I swapped for Michelin Dfenders in same size but beefier...I had serious problems wth SRA's...gravel roads bruised center ply on two tires same day ruined tires...will never use SRA's or GY again...Michelins are stiffer but get basically the same mpg

I ran LT275-65-20E dura trac tires and had no problems. Cleared by a fingers width and looked nicer too as it filled the wheel well more.

I just put the BF Goodrich KO2 all terrains on my 2015 bighorn. I did so on many recommendations by folks here(Thunder horse) load range D with 58 psi cold when towing, and 45 when empty. I pulled my 7000# keystone Bullet across the country, and have been very satisfied with their performance. Both on and of road.

I also added 1000 series air bags inside the coils, and run them about 13-15 psi when towing. Any more pressure in the bags, and it starts to feel like you're in a small boat coming in with the waves.
