You do seem like the type to test the limits of whatever tires your FJ Cruiser is equipped with. Does Toyota actually offer BFG AT's with anything on their current lineup? The concept's tires may look beefy, but if Toyota doesn't have a history of offering them with their production models, they may not want to do so with the new TJ Cruiser even wit TRD trim.

I know on the first generation Tacomas they all came with the Goodyear Rugged Trails, and may have been the same for the 4Runners from the same time frame. Not sure what the tire offering was for the second gen Tacomas that were non TRD, may have been a Goodyear as well. Toyota is known for putting Goodyear tires on their truck and SUV lineups as a base tire, and not sure if that carried into the sport models. I do know however that they mounted BFG AT's on all second gen Tacomas with the TRD Off-road package and some of the fourth gen 4Runners in specific packages. The first and second gen Tundras with the TRD off-road packages got the BFG AT's as far as I know, may be wrong about the Tundras but I do remember seeing a few on the dealerships lots with the AT's mounted.

The special edition FJ's got the BFG's including all of the trail team. The first two years were TRD's and my memory has drawn a blank if they came with the BFG but I think they did. As far as a base tire I'm not sure if they were a Goodyear product or not.

I'm not seeing an offering for the AT's on the new Tacomas just Goodyear, so it looks like they may have gone back the that brand.

Guess if you really want some better factory tires than the TRD off-road packages is the only way to go. But there's always the option to get another set elsewhere and switch them out. Depending on where you live and the Toyota dealership, some may offer winter tires instead of all seasons so you can use the factory set as winter and go buy a set of BFG ATs for daily.

But at this point I'm not expecting too much when it comes to small details like tires on the base level TJ Cruiser because it won't really be as rugged as the FJ and as far as I know, Toyota wasn't big on a TRD FJ either. I think only around 3,000 units of the TRD Special Edition FJ Cruiser was produced.

Too bad bolt patterns and center bore of wheels for any current TRD off road package will be well off from what our TJ's will get otherwise fitting a set from those would be a good option for a lot of us. Maybe its the excuse we need for sticking to something new and shiny
