I just put my modded IDM in from Beans Diesel. By seat of the pants feel, there was a slight increase in power, actually thought there was a bigger difference when towing. Throttle response is much better though

Mine are only about 2,000 miles old, but they still look brand new and have not worn down at all. They're widely recommended as a M/T to use if you tow, because they hold up very well while towing too. I can't say much on that end as I've only towed our 3 place ATV trailer which only weights about 4000 loaded with all of our ATVs and gear.
My uncle got some Goodyear Wrangler MT/Rs on his 2004 Chevy 1 ton dually and they haven't held up worth a **** towing their gooseneck horse trailer, so he's getting Toyo M/Ts next time.

50,000 is usually no problem for everybody it seems and I've seen some approach 80k before being needed to be replaced.

Toyo has really gotten the right tire compound down to maximize mileage while still providing excellent traction.

The Cooper Discoverer STTs are pretty comparable, but they're often more around here, so the Toyo M/T is just a better deal as evidenced by more people using them.

Alright thanks guys. Is the only way I can check the Idm to look inside the fender? I really dont want to take the piece out just to put it back in until I get time to do the mod
