Default Toyo MT review

ok, you guys mostly already know that i had to get some new rubbers... er tires.

I went with the Open Countries due to the price point and the reviews i heard from people that had ran them before. here are my observations so far...

Nice hum without being obnoxious, good road holding ability on par with my previous ATs or better.

the side-walls have a very aggressive looking pattern... i think its hawt

pull through softer stuff pretty well. I shot up some tall rooster tails in loose dirt and the tires were clean when i was done.

havent had it in any real mud, so i will update on the "M/T" portion as soon as i can.

Has anyone else ran these before and how did YOU like them?

Ive always looked at them, but I couldnt justify the cost. theyre not cheap.

I got them for 18 out the door, mounted, balanced... Im sure i could have gotten a cheaper tire, but i desired an MT that had the looks and the rep, and wasnt named grappler. nothing against that tire, but in FL thats what everyone runs.

Everyone here runs the toyo MT, kind of over done. I went with bfg ats since I tow a lot and our trailers chew down MTs quicker. got those for 1000 out the door.

I do hear they are good tires though. I had a set of 35 inch toyo ATs on my black f150 and they were great. toyo makes a great product.

good stuff... its funny how the trends differ by region. down here, the mud grappler is everyones tire of choice and the toyo is more hard to find, and up there its the toyo thats overdone... That kind of thing intrigues me for some odd reason.

I love the toyo mts, great tire if you need excellent off road traction but also good highway traction, half decent in winter too which is uncommon for a mt.
