Toyo Open Country MT tires ??

Anyone have any experience with these? They claim to be good on the street (not loud, not 'lump', etc). Just looking for an alternative to the BFG A/T, which are great tires just looking for a change.

Thanks!

i have a set of Toyo Open country M/T's, 37x13.50x18's to be exact. i like them, i had some Pro Comp X-Terrains before and these win hands down. they are way quiet compared to the others, the ride is great. i say get them over any other M/T.

The Toyo Open Country A/T's are a good tire. They are quiet and do well off road.

Thanks for the responses. I really like the looks of them just dont want to regret the move from an AT to a MT tire.

If you want an aggressive tire that is capable for on/off road without much noise then the MT is a great choice. Plus they are a Load E range. I've had mine for roughly 10,000 miles and love them. If your windows are up then then you can't even hear them. Before I bought my PSD I had a little Dakota with Toyo Wild Country (if I remember correctly) and those things were loud as heck. It didn't matter if the windows were down or up you could hear them and would have to talk very loud the person sitting next to you. You can't even compare the two in road noise.

Thanks for the info Moon.

Ultimately, I think Im going with 20X10 KMC diesel (chrome) with the 35x12.5x20 Toyo OC MTs.

Thanks to everyone for the info. Ill post pics when I get 'em.

i have a set of 33's. the only thing negative about them is i noticed that they really took a beating once i hooked up my camper. the extra rear end weight ate those bad boys up real fast. like probably a quarter of the tread in one short summer of traveling. but i live down a 200 mile ( 300 kms ) gravel road and i can see hell from here and they defenitly held up to that abuse of doing about 70mph all the time. i make that trip both ways about 10 times a year. i am always hearing of people getting flats all the time up here but i ( knock on wood ) have not had one yet. and i have about a 1/8th of tread left. i am below the wear indicators. if they lasted 60,000 kms for me then they should be ok for you. hey, maybe they should make a commercial about my truck up here in northern canada about their tires?!!! hehe
