toyo tires

anybody running the toyo open country mt's? i called a place called tire barn today and they said they could get me 4 33/12.50/15 tires for $1069. that is with free mount & balance, lifetime rotations, free flat repair, free nitrogen fill up, free valve stem, and 3 year replacement if something happens that is not repairable. does this sound like a pretty good deal to you or does it still seem kinda high? i found the tires online for $189 each wiht $120 shipping but i'll be paying another $100 to have them mounted. do you think the extra almost $100 dollars would be worth it to get all of the extra things for free? anybody ever had any toyo open country mt's and can tell me how many miles you got out of them?

thanks for any info

I have them right now, 10k miles with maybe like 10% wear at most. And I abuse them. That is a lil high. $220 per toyo m/t with all that stuff you mentioned at Les Scwab. And they warranty them for life of the tire.

I've only heard good things about the Toyo M/T's. These are what I plan to get, when My current tires wear out. As far as price, I dont' know, sounds ok.

Shop around, but don't be afraid of Toyo

I have 35x12.5x15 pro comps on my rubicon and they are just ok. I have Toyo open country a/t's on my wife's truck and they are stellar tires! When these P/C's burn out (at less than 20K miles I may add), I'll be looking at Toyo's.

Check around on prices though, I'm seeing cheaper here in California (albiet, without the mount/stems etc). Nitrogen is nice unless you air down a lot.

I payed 1100 for 5 Toyo m/t's in Sacramento at Les Scwab. Came with all the goodies too. Then again, maybe they dropped the price cuz I dropped 3k cash in there that day

The only down side to Toyo's is how stupid heavy they are. My 35s weigh in at 84lbs each.

I have them and love them. Even on steel wheels they are quieter than my Goodyears. I also feel that they perform well in the mud, sand and on the rocks. Yes they are heavy, but so am I.

Mike - How do they perform off road compared to the Goodyears?
Mainly in rocks.

I've noticed the QUALITY of the Goodyear MTR's seems to have gone down radically since the strike 2 years ago. It used to be you barely needed any weights to balance them, lately it takes a ton to balance them.

I have never had the Goodyears on rocks but I have been pleased with the toyo's on rocks. When I wheel, I air down to 15 psi. which works for me. Now I did run both sets of tires through the mud and I liked the toyo's better. Also, I have been able to wheel behind a friend of mine (he has a Rubicon too) where he had to use his lockers to get up a dirt/rock hill and I did not. He runs Maxxis Big Hornes. Which to me sounds like a steak house with peanut shells on the floor. I will also add they balance out nicely. I can go 85mph with no form of vibes at all and my weights are on the back side of the wheels.

Yeah, these things are super quiet on the road. And they perform very well off-road considering I don't air down so i'm at 35 psi. Definitely the best m/t I have expierienced in the mud

I've read they have really strong sidewalls and that maybe why they are so heavy compared to other radials. I was looking at them when I was still considering radials but they were expensive and came in odd sizes for what I was needing. For a radial I think they are a good choice. For that price I'd go with bias maxxis creepies though for my mostly trail rig

They boasted the thickest side walls on a radial or something like that.

my 38" bias tires weigh 84lbs each

84lbs sounds like alot for a 35" radial.

He He - in mud the MTR's are almost useless. They instantly load up.

Sand is a maybe, the deep lugs aren't big enough to grip very well, they just dig in.

Rocks and dirt - I love them. Plenty of sharp edges to grip with the soft rubber.

Somewhat noisy in the street.
And they wear pretty fast.

I've head good things about Toyos. Maybe next time around?

Ya, Toyos are as quiet as my stock tires were, and the self clean in the mud so well that they almost never load up. Not really sure bout rocks, I dont like to go slow so I don't really do many rock crawling things.
