Toyo MT durability/longevity

I am about to purchase new tires for my Superduty. I am replacing my Nitto Terra Grapplers which only lasted me about 35,000 miles!! I was wondering if anyone could tell me approx. how many miles a Toyo MT would last. I want a tire that will last at least 50,000 especially if I am going to spend over $300 per tire. Thanks

I had 55k on my 37/13.50/22 Toyo MT's before I replaced them. They had another 5-10k miles left on 'em and would've gone for longer had I kept them inflated properly. I liked them so much that I replaced them with the exact same tire.

Yep that last a long time for an m/t. Especially if you take good care of them and rotate them.

I'm curious why you got only 35K out of the Nitto's? I had 2 sets of them and also got about 35K out of them but that was because I was running a 33x12.5" wide tire (lt305/70R16E) on a stock 16x7 rim. Wore the centers out before anything else - inflation issues were my problem. The same would be with any tire. Mud tires are even harder to get good mileage out of - not that it cant be done - as already some have posted on here - but - that said - the best chance for high mileage is an all terrain and more of a highway tread then meaty or agressive AT or MT.

I am also running 33 inch Nittos on factory rims. My rims are 18 x 9. I rotated them about every 7,500 miles. I could probably push them and get 40,000, but I don't want to push my luck. I am gonna go with new 20 x 10 rims and 35 inch toyo mt's after I put my 4 inch lift on. Everyone I have talked to about the toyos really like them.

I am really surprised how well my Toyo MT's are holding up from highway wear and getting around on the farm. Got around 40k on them now with a good bit of tread left.
