They come in four varieties: P 4ply, LT 6ply, LT 10ply, and LT 10 ply extreme
-p ride the best, have a less aggressive side wall, shallower tread, and 65k tread warranty
-LT 6ply have a more aggressive side wall and deep tread with 50k tread warranty
-LT 10 ply have a more aggressive side wall and deep tread with 50k tread warranty
-LT 10 ply extreme have the most aggressive side wall and deepest tread, but they are only available in select sizes. Not sure about warranty.
10 ply will have a huge affect on ride, (rougher) but will be more durable for off road puncture hazards
I chose the 6 ply because I wanted a more aggressive look than the P rated tire offered. The ride is stiffer, but not in a bad way. I'm at 35 psi, but I could go a little lower if I wanted. 10 ply tires are really designed for a much heavier vehicle like an F250. Jeeps are light. Keep this in mind when shopping. I think the 6 ply LT is the perfect jeep AT tire due to the jeep's weight.
I have no lift and my tires do not rub even at full lock to the right. These tires are 10.8 wide vs the stock at 10 wide. That only closes the inside gap by 0.4 inches. One thing that is largely different is tread width. Stock duelers were just over 7.6 tread width. Although the section width is only .8 wider the tread width is 9 which is an increase of around 1.4 inches.
I chose 275/65s because that aspect ratio kept me at the stock 32 inch height...not messing with my speedo. My tires are still under the fenders. I have about another 3/4 inch before I am flush with the TOP of the fender. I may add a spacer to widen the stance a bit (cosmetic only). I believe fenders serve a purpose, so if I go wider I'm getting new fenders!
Lifts are to keep articulation with larger tire diameter (which add clearance) (and look awesome). Since these tires fill the fender well a little more I would love an inch or two of lift...but thEn I would just want taller tires creating the never ending conundrum.
Another note on performance: I have max tow so lower gear ratio, etc. I can definitely tell these are heavier tires when accelerating from a stop...but I didn't buy a jeep to drag race.
I think these tires will be terrible for mud (but hey, they aren't MTs) due to the small gaps in the tread from front to back. Side gaps are much wider. Having said that I have been OK in the red clay mud at my hunting camp...and it's sticky.
I hope this info is helpful. Some of this info was missing in the forum. I'm new to this, but I'm an OCD shopper. I hope my time researching has helped.

|jadmt||lately I have been running mine at 26-27lbs on my 14 rubicon unlimited and that is about right, I was at 28-30 but I keep dropping them down to see how they will do and so far no difference around town in mpg. They definitely feel better on the highway at lower psi as far as handling goes.. headed to Moab in less then a week and will have them down around 15lbs for that. It is a 750 mile road trip down so I will probably pump them up to mid 30's for the trip down and back.|

Got rid of the stock MT at 100 miles. AT'2 are much quieter and with the lift the ride is better also. Taken them out in the desert a couple of times now and barely spin a tire. With the lockers they will crawl up some pretty steep stuff. Running them at 32lb right now but I think 28 will be better for the 2 dr.
Aired them to 18 lbs for a long wheeling trip and yesterday ran them at street pressures. Harder ride in the rocks when not aired down. Ran in 2wd most of the time even in deep sand. I thought I was going to stick it once as I got caught in some soft and deep while in 2wd. A little more gas and they started to spin a bit and popped right up on top and away we went. They were not air down either. So far very impressed. The 35's do tend to follow groves on the road but find me a 35 that doesn't.

|Ngin40||Sorry don't mean to hi-jack the thread but has anyone in this thread ever owned both Duratracs and the Toyo AT2. I'm undecided on which to purchase, I have a long commute to work but it's only twice a week so noise isn't a factor unless one is significantly louder than the other. I drive a 2013 JKU Sahara. any advice would be appreciated|

|MGlickLBZ||Not to hijack the thread but I ran a set of these in 265 75 16 on a modded Duramax and got 52,000 miles out of them in load range E. Toyo makes great tires and if I could find them in the right size to run on my Crappy Duty I would run them on it.|

Installed my 285/75r18 toyo open country at 2's. Installed measure exactly 34" tall, this is with a TF leveling kit and 1.5" wheel spacers. I have a 2.5" lift waiting to be installed. I do rub on the plastic air damn only at full turn... But I sure wouldn't do any trails as is. Spare won't fit on carrier either without a spacer or extension.

|dawhitesJKU||traded my jk and got a new "KL" cherokee trailhawk. The firestones that come stock are pretty lame and stiff. man oh man do i miss the toyo's. Looks like i'll be upgrading the firestones in a couple months...perhaps the wheels too.|

Can someone get a real world "tread width measurement" and "width measurement at its widest point" from their 285/70 R17 P metric ATII? And if so can you tell me what size wheel it's mounted on? Thanks!
Curious on this before I pull the plug. My local shop will do all 5 mounted, balanced, etc OTD after taxes for $970.

|WranglerJA||I decided to swap nearly new 17x35 MTs to the AT2 Extremes 20x35. I was very skeptical with mainly the look (have ran MT's since 2005 on other rigs), solid ride/handling and longetivity. What an improved difference! Super quite, very smooth and as others have posted, in person the tire looks much better than pics. Although the section width is smaller than MT, the tread width is 1" wider with a bold square shoulder.|

|Utm18||You can try tread depot.com|

I had the same problem, ended up going with a smaller size. 33 vs. 34

|jadmt||do a google search of les Schwabb tires.|

^my tires were backordered when I initially purchased them. Waited two days so it wasn't a big problem.
U can try craigslist and find many independent dealers. That's how I got mine and saved several hundred by paying cash in full.

Toyo Open Country AT2's cannot find
Can't locate to purchase (5) brand new Toyo Open Country AT2's in 35x12.50x17 E rated.
I have been checking everywhere on line….and my local 4wheel shop is on a waiting list for 12 tires.
Any suggestions on where I can order (5) my AEV 17" arrived a few nights ago and I am ready to get the a new set of tires mounted.
PM me if you know where I can order (5).

|Utm18||Do the toyo run true to size or are they smaller|
|11-08-2013 09:13 PM|
I'm looking to get some bushwhackers but this is what your looking at room wise when you flex with the 35's.
