Tires:

Bridgestone Dueler A/T REVO
Bridgestone Dueler A/T Revo with UNI-T AQII 265/70/R17
 
I upgraded my factory tires from Dunlop Grandtrek AT20 P265/65/R17 (31") highway all-season radial tires to Bridgestone Dueler A/T Revo with UNI-T AQII P265/70/R17 (32") Standard Load. These tires are approx. 1.1" larger than the factory tires and require no lift to fit without rubbing. I had them mounted with the blackwalls out, and the outline white letters facing in.
 
On my previous 4Runner, which I purchased new as well, I left the factory tires on until they wore out which occured at approximately 40,000 miles. At that time I upgraded to Revos. The upgrade was significant enough for me to want to do this on my 2007 4Runner within the first month of receiving the vehicle. The Revo tires offer much better traction in wet weather, in the snow and off road, are a larger size and have a better look all without increasing the highway driving noise level nor make the vehicle have a harsh ride. No sense waiting years for the factory tires to wear out. Doing this mod even before finishing the first tank of gas, enabled me to sell the factory tires while in like new condition and receive maximum value for them.
 
As mentioned earlier I went with the standard load rating, otherwise known as "P Metric". The Revos are available in "E" load rating which I would recommend if you do alot of off-road driving. The E load Revos are stiffer (3 side wall plys rather than 2), heavier (6 pounds heavier each), have deeper tread (3/32 deeper), are wider (4/10" wider) and more expensive ($20 more per tire). None of those items I desired for the type of driving that I primarily do.
 

Dunlop AT20
The Dueler A/T REVO with UNI-T AQII Technology was developed to meet the needs of pickup truck and sport utility vehicle drivers who drive their vehicle both on and off the road. The Dueler A/T REVO is Bridgestone's first Off-Road All-Terrain light truck tire in America to feature UNI-T AQII Technology. It uses an advanced compound and construction features that enhance and preserve wet traction throughout the tire's life to better handle wet road conditions.
 
On the outside, the Dueler A/T REVO molds a Super Long Link Carbon Black, Dual Layer Tread II compound into an aggressive, all-terrain pattern of interlocking tread blocks to provide traction and handling on- and off-road. As the top layer of tread compound wears away, it reveals a second layer specifically developed to resist aging and remain pliable to retain more wet traction-even as it wears.
 
Internally, the Dueler A/T REVO features a Computer Optimized Component System that blends twin high strength steel belts reinforced with spirally wrapped nylon to stabilize the tread area and enhance durability while minimizing weight. O-Beads (which use a single strand of bead wire that is continuously wrapped multiple times until the desired strength is provided) enhance the tire's fit to the wheel to improve uniformity and ride quality.
 
The R- or S-speed rated Bridgestone Dueler A/T REVO tires feature outline white letter sidewall styling on one sidewall and stylized black letter styling on the other. They are available in popular P-metric, LT-metric and Flotation light truck sizes for 15" thru 17" wheel diameters.

Follow up:
 
I have been running these Revos for 20,000 miles now. I rotated them every 5,000 miles and ran with between 40#-42# air pressure at all times. I have noted very even tread wear. Tread depth went from 13/32" when new to between 8/32" to 9/32" at 20,000 miles. Since I would most likely change these tires out at around 4/32" they are just about at their half life. This is very consistent with my experience in running Revos on my 1999 4Runner which needed replacement at just about 40,000 miles.
 
This is my second purchase of Bridgestone Dueler Revos (the first being on my 1999 4Runner). I still highly recommend these tires and would not hesitate to buy them again. They offer excellent traction on-road in all conditions and perform well off-road too. They have absolutley no road noise over a factory all season tire. They track perfectly and have no tread squirm. I never had an issue with balancing either.
 
At 20,000 miles, I am at a crossroads though. It has taken me six years to hit this mileage as I commute daily via mass transportation, and I have an itch for a more agressive looking tire to better compliment my lifted vehicles' looks. I understand that there may be some trade offs with a more agressive tire such as a) potential for increased tread noise, b) potential for tread squirm due to deeper and softer tread blocks, c) potential for slightly decreased mileage. But I believe these are thing I can live with to try another tire.
 
So I put the Revos up for sale and was able to locate a local buyer that was willing to put a deposit down while the tires were still on the truck. This was a great benefit to me as I didnt have to purchase new tires first without knowing if I would ever be able to unload these half used, six year old set of five tires having two plugs in them. Selling these was important as I didnt want to simply waste these tires just for a more agressive look knowing how great they are and that I could probably get another six years performance out of them. Ultimately I was able to get back 40% of my original cost for the set, which I believe is a fairly good deal for me realizing that the buyer still needs to pay for mounting and balancing on top of the purchase price, so his total cost will be approaching 50% of a set of new Revos.
 

Rotation Pattern
 
Five Tire Rotation Pattern:
 
The 4th generation 4Runner comes equipped with a full size spare tire mounted on a matching full size aluminum alloy wheel. I have upgraded the spare tire as well to a 32" Bridgestone A/T Revo tire. The one inch larger than factory P265/70/R17 tire does fit in the stock spare location.
 
A Five tire rotation pattern results in equally distributed use that will help maintain equivalent tread depths on all five tires throughout their life. When applied to the 4Runners full time four wheel drive system (all wheel drive is standard with the V-8 engine option), this will prevent driveline damage if a flat tire forces a spare to be put into service with partially worn tires on the other three wheel positions.
 
By rotating the spare into the pattern, you accomplish a secondard benefit of extending the other tires life a little longer and getting useage out of the spare. Remember, tires have a shelf life and do dry out after many years. You may as well get some use out of the spare rather than discarding it unused when your main four tires wear out.
 
I have chosen to rotate my tires every 5,000 miles using the pattern shown below. The spare will be inserted in the passenger side rear position at each rotation. Place the tire that would have gone to the right rear in the spare location until the next tire rotation.
