I was wondering if anneyone out thair is running them and if it would be a good upgrade from the 32sx tires im running now. I drive my truck 5 miles a day to and from work.When i go offroad i hit my share of mud,hillclimes and tight tree lined trails i havent done mutch driving on rocks. let me know whut you think. Idont want to make a bad choice. are the side walls tuff,ect. thanks <IMG SRC="smilies/clown.gif" border="0"> <IMG SRC="smilies/biggrin.gif" border="0">

Get 35's. I got the 34's and they were a good transition tire from 31's. But my truck looks puny with the skinnys on it. Does good in mud and on rocks. Side lugs really get you over roots etc. Gotta run 7 inch rims. My advice is 35's of some sort. My .02

I now run 33x950s and like them due to the fact they stuff up under the wheelwell instead of hitting any fender stuff such as a wider tire set up would, (it depends on what kind of lift set up you got I know). Got to watch the backside fender as they rub when they stuff bacjwards, going to put a 2" body lift on next week to solve that. Yea they are skinny looking from the front\rear view....so what they work very well.

I havent looked for a price but Ithink thair about $600 or so.in the future i want to run a 36sx but right now i dont have the funds to do my DIFFS. if im going in thair im doing lockars and gears at the same time. i think that the stalk 4.10 gears would be to high for my little 22R. Is annyone out thair running 36`s whith stalk gears? if so let me know howyour toy dose.

I am runnung 529s w/ a spool, i bought a used set from dsi he said they were like 70%+ I am very pleased with them. Excellent traction and good wear even with the spool. I am going to but 2 new ones for the rear, use one of these as a spare. I won't be going any larger till I get another daily driver, I totaled my other one a month ago.

Hey Funky4x, I think that these tires would be great in the snow and on the street but not so good on the rocks but I'm not sure because I have never seen them on the rocks, every one today has 36x12.50s or bigger. but I really dont think its the tire that makes it up the trail its the driver.

I ran my 33x950s in the rocks and hills up north of Westwood and had no problem at 15lbs on the trails I was on, worked better than my 31x1050s. I feel very confident with em overall.

Those skinny tires work great for the slimey trails here in NW Oregon. I would prefer the 33/10/15's just because I like radials better. I'm sure that all the tires of this type would work great in slick conditions.

I ran the 33 10.50 for about 2 years and they were a great tire! skinny tires cut through the air better so its a little better for performance and mpg. and since toyotas are light trucks the higher contact pressure helps in all situations. Id buy 34 9.5 but i gotta have 36's

I love my 34s, but they need to be on 6 inch rims or you can't go below 15-20 PSI. They work fine with stock gears also.

So for a skinny tyre are Q78's a good choise?
From what I remember they are 35/11/15

Not many mini trucks run the the TSL/SX in Australia, most think that the extra side lugs do not flex as well as the TSL on a light truck. Your thoughts?

What Vermont_Toy said!!! I've run em for just over a year now, work good on rocks, but not as stable as a wider tire/wheel combo on sidehills (the less lift, the less worry bout this!)

Sidewalls are bullet-proof! Radial sidewalls suck big wad! But beadlocks would be nice anytime you run bias-ply tires.

I need 35 or 36x12.50x15 tires next for more ground clearance and better side-hilling.
