dawhitesJKU for those with the 35's on oem rubicon wheels, i see that they fit, however, someone stated that its not recommended due to the overall width. (you won't be able to air down, or you'll break a bead)

I want to keep my willys theme and keep my oem's but i do use my jeep as a jeep. what are your thoughts on the 35x12.5 on oem's?

pokey162 I have a set on my 2014 JKU. I have a budget 3" lift. I have MB 18X9 wheels with the LT32560R18 Toyos AT2s. They ride great on the highway and seem to get smoother the faster I go. Took the Jeep to an ORV park the other day and theses tires worked really well and I was pushing the limits to try and make them fail. It was really wet conditions but they seemed to "clean out" in the mud way better than I would have predicted being an all terrain. Overall I have nothing but good things to say for the first 5000 miles...but they need more testing...more testing...more testing...sorry I've got an addiction problem with wanting to go off road all the time. LOL.

thetalkingmule I don't have much frame of reference because I've only driven on the bald M/T's that came with my used 2001 and my new AT2's, but these tires are deathly quiet even on the highway. I couldn't be happier.

Went with the LT 6-ply as recommended a few pages back and I think they're "just right". A bit stiff, but in a good way. Much smoother ride and the bit of death wobble I was getting at 70mph is now gone.

I do have a couple highway questions though. With the new Toyo's I'm getting a really weird rhythmic vibration. I get a very deep, but mild vibration for a second, then a second of silence, then the vibration, then silence. It's a slow perfectly repeated rhythm as well, which I thought was weird. Almost felt like it was the road surface, though obviously it was not. It was likely there all the time, I just couldn't hear it over the M/T's. Any thoughts? "It's a Jeep" is a perfectly fine response if I'm being ridiculous.

The root of my death wobble seems to still be present too(if that makes any sense), it's just much much less pronounced. The old tires would literally thump because they were so unevenly worn and unbalanced. I think the alignment needs to be addressed, so I'm off to Mr. Tire for their 50% off deal tomorrow. $49 is worth it since it's never been aligned in the 4 months I've had it in my care.

Anywho.....in my limited experience, I HIGHLY recommend these tires. Paid $171 a tire with no tax or shipping fees for 265/75/16's. Not a bad deal.

Here is my Rubi X with 285/75r17 Toyo AT2 extremes. They are E rated so they rode rough when I first got them, but since have been pushing 28psi and the ride is much better, very similar to stock. At 28psi, they measure out at 33.2" mounted on stock tires. With my 2" AEV spacer lift, 1.5" Spidertrax wheel spacers and some very intense off road flexing I never had any rubbing.

Pretty happy with my overall setup, very happy with the tires. I have about 6k miles on them, some visible wear but not much. I have run them in every condition at this point and they worked pretty well in all. Mud it wasn't as good as an MT tire, and on ice I did have some excess slipping when braking hard, but that was only in comparison to the winter tires on my wife's Subaru.

Because I have children and do occasionally use this Jeep as a family vehicle I plan on getting some used 18" Sahara wheels and some Firestone Winterforce tires (33x11) exclusively for the November-April months here in Colorado where we can get some nasty snow and ice.

I never had a huge problem with ice with these Toyos, but in my honest opinion, a $1000 investment where "the rubber meets the road" is well worth it and more important than a winch or lights or a better suspension.

Thanks for the reply, I probably should have said mounted and on the vehicle or if anyone had them on hand to measure. Seems the 285/70/17's vary in size from manufacturer to manufacturer and run a bit smaller than others.

I'll be cashing out on my profit share from work by the end of January. Very likely i'll be getting the 35's just like you.

jadmt I liked my at2's so much I bought another set this time in 35x12.5-17 I can report that no issues with 4.10 gears and auto. running 26psi seems about perfect. My set of 285/75-17 were made in the USA these ones are made in Japan and pretty fresh as made 39th week of 14. one wheel took 3/4 of an ounce to balance and one took 4.5 ounces to balance and the others 3 took 2-3 ounces. Not bad for a 100lb tire wheel combo.

JeffNYC Just got my 285/75/16. Big drag on performance (almost as slow as my 2008 with stock tires). Will reprogramming for the larger tire size improve much? Do people use their dealer or get a programmer/tuner. For a 2015 JKU Sport.

I will be getting these tires again once my oem Bfg mt's wear in my willys. Nitto is also coming out with new all terrains that you might wanna take a look at.
Did you get the darting issue with the 285"s? I took my Toyo 305's off and put on 265 studded snow tires and couldn't believe the driving difference. I guess I was so used to the Jeep driving experience that I thought they all had darting issues. We bought ours with the 305's already installed. The 265's really made my DD a real pleasure. Now I'm thinking of selling the 305's next spring and going to the P 285/70/17, but I don't want to go back to the darting I experienced with the 305's.
11-24-2014 11:34 PM
dawhitesJKU ^im not sure if nitto has a return policy like toyo. Test it out for 500 miles and if you don't like em, get your money back.
11-22-2014 04:30 PM
Hoppy2 I went with the Nitto Terra Grapplers, made by Toyo, totally dissatisfied with the Nitto's. I wish I would have gone with the Toyo ATII's. Nittos are very noisy on the highway and when below 40 still tire buzz. These are P rated tires. Should have went Toyo.
11-19-2014 07:26 PM
the_mark I know what tire I am getting. I will stick with my stock size of 225/75R15 for now. These tires seem that they will look good and function better in any size. Going to be pricey but worth it for 5 tires.

epemdoc Great! Thanks jadmt. Looked at some of your pic's. Look's like the tires don't stick out much outside the fender flare, which is what I am looking for...

I have no problems running 5.2" backspacing with them so you should be fine.

trym3 Hello,

Could you guys please help me decide if i should get AT2 or HT ?
Never seen how they look and tbh this is my first wrangler
I drive 90% on street and highways (long commute sadly)
Aiming for good mpg But i still want a good looking tire...

Toyo AT2 285/70R17 P 49 lbs

Toyo HT 285/70R17 T 44.6 lbs

Hell, i'm adding AT2 285/65/R18 also, would my MPG drop hard with this tire compared to the other 2?

Thank you
04-16-2014 02:26 PM
cokey4237 I've got exactly 1 year in(~8k), extremely quiet tire for an aggressive AT. Even with the doors off on the hwy. They don't scallop like other treads, which causes them to get louder as you rack up the miles.
04-16-2014 12:20 AM
Porktownff51 Can't say for a tj, but my jk with either top I don't hear much at all about 10k on mine now
04-14-2014 01:03 PM
thetalkingmule Extremely helpful thread, thanks. Sorry to hijack a bit...

Was contemplating buying my first ever Jeep this weekend('02 Sport automatic), but pretty much gave up on the idea of owning a TJ after this test drive. The road noise on the test drive was maddening at 50mph+. The GY Wranglers with uneven wear made it difficult to talk and it would be unbearable with even just the windows down, or god forbid the top/doors off. I went into this test drive expecting body creaks and wind noise to be the issue, but heard almost none. 90% of the noise was coming from the tires even at low speed. Is that standard for a TJ?

This thread is bringing me back around. If I can get a good enough deal, I may make the leap, slap 4 Toyo AT2 31's on, get a good alignment and hope for the best.

If anyone can add personal opinion here, I'd appreciate it.

Do you find yourself able to reasonably converse in a hardtop TJ going 50mph on good pavement?

Sounds to me like these Toyo AT2's are slightly quieter on the street than the BFG T/A KO's that everyone loves. Would you say that's correct?

Thx for the experience.

yours are even bigger. 34.8 x 11.8, so I would think that would be a big hit, and probably LT e rated as well.

the 285/70r17 is 32.7 x 11.4, and in hte P is 48lbs.

i still think i'll probably stay w/ the smaller ones. I hate the feeling of tires stealing the power.

thx!

real world data?

I measured, and mine hankook ipike in the same size was over .5 wider and taller.
So, thinking of going to the next size up.
but,
I tried the 285/70r17 duratrac briefly at the rec of discount tire, and I really didn't like them. It was an E tire, so 53lbs, but power, handling, and steering precision all went way down. And, I went from getting 19.5 to 15.5 mpg w/ those. So i got rid of them.

it seems the toyos are less aggressive, come in a P, so lighter, and may even be smaller.

So, any real world gas milage effects of going 285/70 r 17 w this tire, and power drain?

Thx for any input.

It will be a summer tire, studs on ipike in winter, i drive 500 miles a week, and will do a few off road adventure this summer, but little mud or sand, mostly mtn. roads and rocks.

Cheers,
Holiday

OK, still nothing? Seems lots are running the 285/70r17 in the Pmetric.
Any help?

I do have 3.73 gears w/ the max tow if that helps.

as stated, the lt 285/70r17 duratrac in the E was not good on it. Much slower and less fun to drive, and 20% drop in mpg as well. Seems the toyo is less aggressive 5lbs lighter per tire, may not be nearly the same issue I had w/ the gy.

I know they have the 500mi guarantee, but would like the best data I could get before pulling the trigger.

Thanks!
