Toyo Open Country M/T

Hey guys,
Lookin to get new tires for my JK...
Ill be the first to admit I boneheaded my tire selection the first time around.
Lil background story: I put 17" Rockstars on my Jeep w/ 33" tires. Having never previously owned any 4x4 vehicle I didnt really know what kind of tires to get (mind you I wont be off roading alot but I do whenever I get the chance) I asked a guy at a local Summit and he recommended some pretty tame "all-terrain" tires.
Anyway, now Im looking to improve to some slightly more aggressive tires - in this case the Toyo Open Country M/Ts.
Like I said I really am newish to the offroading/4x4 scene and I wont be offroading ALL the time.
I would really like your guys' $.02 on these tires or just tires like this in general.
BTW, Id like to stick w/ the 33" tires as to avoid needing any re-gearing or tire carrier change.
Thanks guys

You should stay away from the Toyo's. I had a set on my Super Duty diesel, they were down to the wear band after 28,000 miles. Same story for 3 of my friends. Two of them spent the extra money to have them Siped. Didn't work for longevity. This time I went with the Cooper Discoverer STT. These have the same aggresive tread, cost less, and mine are comming up on 36,000 miles and aren't even close to wearing out. Most of my miles are on road. Towing a trailer about 1/3 of the time. They do great when I do get the urge to sling some mud. Best M/T tire I have owned.

I like Cooper STTs also and am running them.
But the Toyos will last a bit longer on a Jeep than on a Super Duty...
They're good tires. Pricey, often hard to find, sometimes not the easiest to balance. But very popular in certain circles.

I still prefer the Coopers.

I have the cooper stt's as well. Great tire on and off road with zero problems. I have read reviews with proper rotation it is possible to get close to 60k out of them.

Pics of them on my jeep: http://www.wranglerforum.com/f5/intr...les-73317.html

Here is where i got mine and its the cheapest after a few hours searching back in October: COOPER*DISCOVERER STT LT Sizes

I am a big fan of Cooper tires myself. I am running Mickey Thompson MTZs, and Mickey Thompson is a Cooper brand. The STT is a good tire.

I agree with Hilldweller - the Super Duty is a much heavier vehicle and you will see different results with a Jeep. The vehicle weight has a lot to do with tire wear and you have to be careful when comparing the results on other vehicles with a Jeep.

thank you all for your input...
I think I will look into those Coopers as I am having slight trouble even finding the Toyo's for pricing

My sister had the Toyo's on her stock Ranger 4X4 with only slightly better gain in miles before they were gone. Toyo's are popular here in the northwestern states, mostly because of the warranty Les Schwab Tire Centers offer with them. (just my guess) When our BFG MT's are needing an update, the STT's are going on the Islander.
