Nokian Rotiiva

Before winter Im going to replace my Bridgestone Dueler H/T 684 II tires.

My local shop where I've been going for the last 7 years has suggested
Nokian Rotiiva AT Plus line of tires. I currently have 275/65r18's and
was thinking about going up to 285/65r18''s regardless of the brand.

Anyone have any first hand knowledge of the Nokian brand in regards
to tread life and highway noise and traction?

And - Can someone please explain the difference between All Season and All Weather?

Nokians

I am happy to offer my opinion,

I am living and working in British Columbia, so need solid winter tires. I have been using Nokian Winter tires for 15 years after visiting Teck Resources Line Creek mine and seeing every service vehicle on the mine site running Nokian. Winter time we run a fleet of 15 passenger vans moving Students from the Rockies to the coast and all we run are Nokian Hakkepelitta LT2 factory studded. I have them on my Tundra and I put them on my wife's Kia Sorrento AWD and it drives like it is on rails. The durability is great, and you won't find a better winter tire. The Finn's know how to make a winter tire. You won't be disappointed.

My two cents and I don't work for Nokian

Cheers

Changed the rims due to the offset and didn't want the sand to blast the truck

I've always heard good things about Nokian winter tires.
Not sure about their all season or all terrain tires.
I imagine they perform like most other "all season" tires. Mediocre at everything.
I would buy their snow tires, but if their all season street tires are a lot more expensive than other name brands, I wouldn't waste the money

Thats good to hear. I have narrowed down my choices to
Nokian Rotiiva AT Plus (all weather) and Michelin LTX series (all season)

Price range is the same here in my area (ohio) so I guess I just need to pick
a set and go with it. LOL

Another thought -

On my 2016 SR5 with stock suspension, no leveling or lift, bone stock....

Will 275/70r18's fit or is 275/65R18 the largest I can go?

Was looking for something a bit taller to fill up the space without rubbing.

I had the Nokian Rotiiva's on my 2015 4Runner when I lived in VT. they are great tires in snow or rain. Tread life is really good too. They are also very quiet which is what I wanted since I traveled a lot. I believe the 285/65R18's should fit with no problems. I was thinking about the same tire when I need to change my Michelin's out on my 2016 TRD Tundra. Also considering the Nitto's too.
