Are you running 10ply tires? Itís hard round here to find tires for my 19 taco that are 10ply. Just not common in my size. Will 10ply sacrifice ride on normal roads?

My current Tacoma has the factory tires which I figure are 4 ply rated. The heaviest I ever ran on my last one was 6 ply. I have a Jeep with 10 ply rated tires. It doesn't really feel any different than lighter tires that I have run. Only running 30-32 psi on the Jeep 10 plies.

I run 8 ply, those pickups are lightweight, I haven't had any flats on mine and they last good.
I've been running toyo tires. I'm on my second set

I run 10-ply in the winter for trapping/hunting.

Mine's only a 5 speed four cylinder. I'm pretty sure my gas mileage suffers (but haven't officially checked the numbers).

Many years ago my dad had a trailer with an odd hub and size rim. He had to buy airplane tires for it. I think they were ten ply.

You should be able to get a BFG ko2 all terrain in an E load range .

What size tire and rim do you have now ?


I run them on my 1/2 ton Chevy to prevent flats while off pavement .

They are definitely stiffer but roll true and smooth

All I ever ran was 4ply the last 1,000,000 plus miles the past 30 years. They are 10.5/31/15. The roughest roads I ever ran were logging roads rocked with slag.

I've been running these for the past ten years and they've performed well.

i've run a number of different heavy tires on a couple of tacos but i specifically opted for C range 6 plys for my current set. tacomas ride kinda poorly to begin with and i didnt want the weight of them sucking down gas given that they also dont get the best mileage. but my miles are either on roads or completely off road----not much in between. however around here off road means either nasty clay farm fields or loose bottomless sand. there is no rock, sharp edges etc. i've punctured exactly one tire in the last couple of decades and that was a 10 ply e rated on a piece of steel in the middle of a field.

I run 10 ply Hankook Dynapros on my 2020 Tacoma. Itís a little stiffer ride than the factory tires but not too noticeable. Our local tire stores keep a good supply of 10 ply in stock.

Not a Tacoma, but I run 10 ply BFG KO's on a Sierra half ton. Definitely a stiffer ride, but not bad. I lost 1 mpg compared to stock tires. I'll trade that for not having to worry about flats near as much when off road.

10 ply is the only way to travel on co roads around here. 6plys get chewed up quick. I have been running falken 10ply but they have went way up in price. Just got some Goodyear duratrax 10ply for 1100$ ordered today sick

Did that come with a discount if you took Goodyear's " how to be less white " class ? laugh

I run 10 ply on my Tundra, ride and mileage suffers, but driving logging roads here , 4 and 6 ply will not last.

I ran a Tacoma for years and I usually went with Cooper's 10 ply because of off road hazards.
I think they were the Cooper Discoverer AT3 LT All- Terrain Radial 10-ply.
Great tire.
Mid range price.

Now I pay more for buggie tires.... the RP 12 ply.... than my truck tires.
Go figure.

I run the bfg ko 2s on my Ford f150 hauling a 100 gallon fuel tank on bush roads. Running 60 lbs air get 2 years or more to a set around 60000 km. Best tire I have found for what I do. Only flat I had was a railway spike.

I've always use 10 ply.

Order them online a tire shop will charge you minimal to switch them
