What are the best off road tires for a Toyota 4Runner?

My brother is getting a new SUV and is letting me have his old Toyota 4Runner, and I’m thrilled! It’s in really good shape and I’d like to take it off-road, but it currently has regular all-season tires. What are the best off-road tires for a Toyota 4Runner?

Score! What a wonderful gift.
The best off road tires for a Toyota 4Runner are ones with a blocky, aggressive tread pattern and are made of puncture-resistant rubber.
Off-road tires are a good investment if you plan on doing a lot of driving in rugged terrain, but they also tend to wear out faster than other kinds of tires—and they’re pretty pricey! If you can, it’s best to stick with regular tires unless you’re taking your new 4Runner off roading.
The other thing you’ll want to do is check and make sure you have the appropriate insurance for your new ride—if you’ll be spending a lot of time off the beaten path, then roadside assistance or towing and labor coverage policy is a smart option to consider! You’ll be able to call for 24/7 assistance to get a tire change, battery jumpstart, or gas fill, among other services no matter where you are.
