What's your current size tire and wheel (+ width) ?BFG has 33 x 9.50s and 33 x 10.50s which will fit on a 15x7 rim.
Narrow and tall on 4x4 isn't really a good idea handling wise. Since you aren't sure what your future plans are, I would go with the BFG AT's in the current size you have now, if still on stock tire size, I would go with 31x10.50's.
A H78-15 is somewhere between a 225 /75 15 and 235 / 75 15My 86 came stock with 225/75 15s. If you haven't regeared, going to the smaller tire will give you better mileage. And if those are 15x5.5 rims, a 31 10.50 tire is too big for the rim width......
The latest issue of Toyota 4wd Owners has a great article on these. http://www.herculestire.com/tire-gallery/passenger-and-light-truck/light-truck/terra-trac-dt/#loaded
First of all, where are you living now? And when are you planning on coming this way? (I live in Tillamook!)Because, like said in earlier posts, for traveling across the country loaded with everything you own, its gonna be a slow and sluggish drive, when your are not in the flats. You are gonna hate the long steep climbs. Your gonna be stuck with the truckers in the SLOW lane. So, what I would do, if I were to travel across country like you are planning. I would buy a good used, or inexpensive set of tires in the LT235/75-15 A/S size. Then later sell them for some better tires once you get established. But this is if your still running stock gears. If you had 4.88's, you would be good with 31's. But I would recommend upgrading to at least 8" wide wheels. I have a stock 87 22RE with 31 BFG's on 8" wide wheels, and I can go to Bend in Central Oregon loaded and get an average of 20+ mpg easily. But with 31's, I find that in climbing Santiam Pass, I have to do 3rd gear and running 4500 rpm's just to keep moving. Because once you lose your rpms' and speed, your crawling, and hating the fact that your motor just doesn't have 20 more hp.And later if you really still want to upgrade to skinny tires, I'd recommend going 16" and looking at the 265/75-16 variety in 6 ply. They are taller, and still are slightly skinny enough without going too wide. And Tillamook State Forest, (TSF) you will want some aggressive tread design. Like the Goodyear MT/R's or BFG M/T. Because there is enough slimy mud, that your are gonna need traction tires that can clear themselves easily. But there is ALOT of Motocross trails there too. http://www.oregon.gov/odf/tillamookstateforest/pages/ohvtrails.aspx
I basically wanted to be able to get around and have the Toyota truck that could do everything and never get stuck.
Love the look of a toyota truck on tall skinny tires. I have 255/85/26 (33.4 x10) on my tacoma and i love them. I wheel in mixed terrain and they have not let me down. Truck is a DD as well.
What is a DD? What brand and model of tires of those dimensions do you have?
well a DD can be two things lol in this case it means Daily Driver.
