Toyo Open Country AT 2

Hey everyone,

Happy New Year !

Bought a set of Fuel wheels for my 2013 JKU .

Now I'm trying to decide on tires. I've been searching a lot for tires, looked at a lot of pics so now i'm just looking for user experience with these P rated AT 2's

The guy at the tire shop i'm dealing with says i'll be very happy with the AT 2 in P285/70/17.

My heart was set on the BFG KO2 tires but I was always worried about changing the way the jeep drives and performs as a daily driver. Because that's what she is, a daily driver and will be used a few times on beginner off road trails. And driving my brother in law's dodge ram with KO's on it, I can feel his truck became extremely sluggish and gas mileage dramatically decreased.

I'm happy with the price of the Toyo's, Tread looks great as well, I wanted a bit of an aggressive side wall. Pictures are hard to look at with these tires, so I was wondering if there was a big difference between the "P" rated Open Country AT 2's and the LT rated Open Country AT 2's side walls ?

Thanks everyone!

The difference will be more depth on the tread on the LT, and even more on an extreme compared to a pmetric.

I replied. Also, there is not much noticeable difference in ride quality from the p metric to the LT. I never ridden in an extreme version though, but others stated that it still drives like stock. I can concur having 35" KO2's.

I like Dawhites run both and I would get LT vs the P version. I rand 285/70-17, 285/75-17 and 35/12.5-17 all in E rated and all rode great on my jkur. I currently am running KO2's in D rate ie 34/10.5-17 and switch back and forth between those and the AT2 35's and both ride great. I will give the edge to the KO2 as a winter tire and the Toyo for running stuff like the rubicon trail and moab etc. I would however say you cant go wrong with either tire.

Thanks ! . I ended buying the toyos this morning . Seems like it would be an all around useful tire for me and since I'm on a little bit if a budget I wanted to save a but where saving was safe .

Thanks for the feedback !

Great choice. Remember if you don't like them, return them within 30 days. Pretty cool huh?! Also I haven't heard of anyone returning them before the trial period ends.

I love mine...
315 x 60 x R18
See...
Ride is excellent. Handling is good I did hydro plane a few times when I first got her, and I was driving in rain on a day for 14 hours solid...so I may have been a bit uptight...
They dont make the tire howl...
OK I use mine for work also and for me its an excellent tire...
works well in rain, well in Mud, and great in sand...at least pulling stuff around in my yard...lol
OK Basically I love My set.
