    2010 Tacoma TRD Off-Road... Thinnest tire I can run on stock wheels?

    Hey everyone, What is the thinnest tire I can run on the stock TRD off-road wheels? I run 265/75/R16 dura-tracs that need replacing. They are wide and my truck is light. This makes for poor performance on pretty much anything but sand. So, I want thinner tires but I dont want to replace the...

    Dura-Trac Follow Up Report:

    When I bought my dura-tracs a year ago, they were only a couple of years old, and finding reliable primary source reviews from long term users was difficult.

    The Dakar Touring Compass

    Just found this compass. Its a mix between a traditional military lensatic compass (I know a lot of you guys carry the traditional lensatics) with a clear housing for easy mapping.
