2007 Toyota Tacoma 4x4 - need tires - have question..

I have a 2007 Toyota Tacoma 4x4 that I use as a work truck.
I've got about 35k on the truck and there's not much tread left.

Plus I am not crazy how the Dunlop AT20 Grand Trek (245/75 R16) tires perform in the snow.

There's a guy on CL selling a set of Dunlop Radial Mud Rover 265/75 R16 on 2007 factory rims with low miles.

Any thought on these tires? I am not familiar with them.

Note that 99% of my driving with this truck will be on pavement.

Thanks in advance.
Paul

I have the Mud Rovers on my 90 and they have been good tires on and off road. I am not sure how many miles are them but I would guess around 25K. They are getting pretty loud now that they are getting some wear, but overall they have been very good.

On the defender i had Nitto Terra Grappler's AT's and they were really nice, i'd say get Nitto's 265/70R1X for the Taco. I think they have a milage guarantee too.

X2 on the Dunlop radial Rover RT. I have had them for ~6 years and they are fantastic, snow, mud, rocks, highway... just about perfect.

Update - I passed on the used tires and now need new ones - so my options are open.

As I noted above - looking for a good all season tire for mostly pavement driving.
I'd like a set that performs well in rainy and snowy conditions.

Let me know your thoughts..
Thanks.
