Exclamation •••> The Un-official Toyo Open Country ATII Thread

Hi guys

I'm very interested in finding more info about these tires
and was wondering if any of you have them on their Jeeps...

I have the chance to get a set of 35x12.5x20's but someone told me they are too "STIFF" for the Jeep. In all fairness there's not a lot of info of these tires on Jeeps hence this thread.

The thing I like is their aggressive look and are quieter than the stock BFG's that comes stock with my COD MW3 which is my daily driver...

Any thoughts?

Here's a picture from Toyo's website.



cheers,
Charles

When they say the are too "stiff" for the Jeep, what they probably mean is that, like many toyo tires, they are load range e. This means they are likely meant for truck rather than a light jeep. My toyo tires are load range e and I think they feel great so I guess its personal preference. Its also about what psi you run them at. As for the a/t II specifically, I think it will be a great tire; however, hopefully someone with experience with these tires will chime in.

Thanks a lot Mudrunner

I was looking at the MT's but a few guys told me that they are louder than the stock BFG's that came with my Rubi so for a daily driver I want a quiet tire. Plus with the 50k warranty that these ATII's have it's really hard to pass up.

Hoping someone will post their experience with this tire ASAP

cheers,
Charles

I ran both D and E rated tires on my Jeep; I had to air-down the E rated tires further but they worked just fine.

I'm running the new Toyo AT-2 tires on my PW now in a 285/75-17 size (34") and love them.
Quiet enough on the road, aggressive enough in the mud, more than ample for rocks. They don't hydroplane and they look okay.
50,000 mile treadlife warranty too.

They come in two styles though. Regular and Xtreme; my size is an Xtreme size.
You can tell by the tread depth on the Toyo website; it it says 17/32nds, it's an Xtreme.

I don't think so. The guys on the PW forum were complaining about that.

34 is good enough for me as my DD.

I'll put this tire up there a little ahead of the Duratrak. It's that good.

I'm still torn between these ATII's and the MT's

Not sure if you have tried both but do you know if the MT's are noisier than the stock BFG's that comes with the Rubicon?

I love the look of the OC MT's but someone told me that they are noisier than the stock BFG's that came with my COD MW3...

Thanks for any suggestions

cheers,
Charles

Open Country A/T's are a quieter tire and excellent for road noise.
That's because of milder tread design.
Great street tire.... No where near aggresive enough for off road use, if that's important.

Also, I ran a set on my dodge P/U and got poor mileage....ony lasted 33,000 miles.

I would not rule them out because of D or E rating. No comclusive proof, IMO, that ticker side walls are seriously detrimenal.

Wo carries these? Looks like another off brand that none of the big name tire dealers sell.

Did not know about the A/.T II's. They look much better than the old A/T's.

I have had the AT's for 8 years on my Chevy Silverado 3500 Dually towing a 12,000 lb. fifth wheel. Never had any issues at all. Performed well in the Northern Alberta winters.

The Toyo's replaced Cooper Discover AT's that cracked in the sidewalls. There was a class action lawsuit that shows up whenever you google the Coopers.

Only got stuck once -- towing my trailer in mud. Went down to the axles. It took a John Deere tractor to get me out.


Checked with my local Toyo dealer. Apparently Toyo is trying to use up all of the old stock in Canada before shipping the AT II's -- so beware and don't get stuck with the old design.

Just wanted to give everyone an update on these tires. I just purchased them yesterday at 4 Wheel Parts, here in Las Vegas. I had the 255 75 R 17 BFG Mud Terrains KM's on my 2008 Jeep Wrangler and I hated them. They were loud, cupping, and road rough...yes, I know it's a Jeep but I couldn't hear myself think and they were horrible in the few days we get rain here. I just purchased P285 70 R17's, and installed them on the new Pro Comp Helldorado wheels. Man, what a difference!! They ride so nice and they are so quiet. It rained last night, and in Vegas with all the oil on the streets, this can become very dangerous. I was doing 75 MPH on the freeway in the driving rain and never slipped a bit. Sorry I don't have any pictures yet, but for the price ( The P series) was about $210 a tire. With the weight of the Jeep Wrangler Unlimited, you really don't need the LT or LT EXTREME version...unless you are adding heavy bumpers and winches...with the P series they have a 65,000 mile warranty, so how can you beat that...I studied hard before I made this decision and I am so glad I did...granted they are not the most aggressive looking tire, but everything else makes up for it...

I will keep everyone posted on these but if you are looking at getting a AT tire, I would seriously look at them. I have had the BFG AT's and the Nitto Terra Grapplers, and I have nothing negative to say about them....they were great tires, but you do pay for them....I was really debating the Goodyear DuraTracs and the Nitto Trail Grapplers, but for my DD I am so happy with the AT 2's....I will post pictures after Christmas...

I never considered these until I saw a set at a local tire shop. I had to do a double take on them and then looked really close. I have never seen too many Toyo tires and had no knowledge of them other than reading about them here and in some of the magazines.

Another thing I liked about them is the marking on the sidewall..."MADE IN USA"

I've made a promise to myself that everything I can buy to upgrade my Jeep will be Made in the USA.

Anyone have experiences with the Toyos and Falken tires? I'm still debating if I want 35 or 37 tires and these were the most reasonably priced 37s that I found.

37/1250-17 Falken Tires

I have the Toyo AT2 on a 2013 Sport with a BB. Running them on Raceline Renegade 5 wheels. 33X11.50X17 at 35PSI. They are super quiet and have great traction in the rain. If you are highway driving I would highly recommend. Couldn't tell you about offroad, that's what the Rubi is for.

Thanks for the good info on this thread. I've been looking at getting these tires for my 2012 jK for a few weeks. I like everything I've found out during my research on these tires. The only negative (and I mean only negative) is that the tire might not be as aggressive as the BFG M/T's that I'm currently running. BUT......the wet/ice performance and road noise more than makes up for that.

If you get the big size with the extreme lettering on the side
it will look exactly like the one photo on the first post...!

Just ordered my lift Saturday, and these tires were recommended by the shop ( 3.5 aev and 35x12). Once installed (January 2-3) I'll take pics. At work, sorry about the great grammar

Thanks Master. I didn't realize the lettering is different on different sizes. Good to know.

I've been to two shops in the Denver area and they both are very high on the Toyo Open Country A/T II's. Can't wait to see your pics.

Here's a question I have regarding these tires. Does the extreme edition only come in the larger tire sizes? I emailed the shop that will be installing my lift and these tires for clarification. I went with the 35x17's. if anyone has this answer, it would be greatly appreciated. Once everything is installed ill post pics

From the information I gather only the bigger sizes have the "Extreme" thread and lettering.

hope that helps
thanks,
Charles
