Dunlop Grandtrek AT20
Initial Review: 5,100 miles on tires
January 04, 2013

These tires were standard equipment on my 2012 Toyota Tacoma Access Cab 4X4. I was skeptical when I received a 4X4 vehicle with a passenger tire on it. I decided to give them a chance and drove them for 5,000 miles. Their performance in the rain was disappointing to say the least. You end up spinning out at level intersections and on a slight hill it was even worse. In sand or gravel, I didn't feel confident that the truck was going to stay where I wanted it. After a dusting of snow here in Ithaca, New York, I felt like I was driving a Mini Cooper instead of a 4X4. I called the tire store and ordered a new set of General Grabber AT2s on the truck. The garage managed to get them on an hour before we got 10 inches of snow. The truck handles great and I have no qualms taking it out in the snow. No more slipping on wet pavement and sand and stopping on inclines is no problem. For the highway or someplace flat with no snow, the Dunlops would be fine, but if you live in a hilly, snowy area, you should find a better tire.
