Tires

Hey all im looking for some tire input here. I have been running Toyo Open county At in 325/60/18 for the past 6 years or so. I love the look and the ride of the tire, but gosh im only getting about 29-36k out of a set at best. I found that for the first 25k they wear great unless a load is put on them. This wear is result of proper rotation, inflation, lack of playing around. I'm on my 5th set and getting tired of buying a set of these every year. So, i'd like to see what you guys are running and what kind of ride, size; wear your getting out of them. I have been looking at a set of Nitto durra grapplers and Faulkins. I appreciate the feed back... I have seen allot of reviews on the net with complaints on the nittos similar to what im experiencing with the Toyos.

I've heard the same about the nittos. I've got yokahama geolander AT/S 285/70/17 right now with about 16k on them, and I can hardly even tell they have been used. I had 2 sets of Good Year wrangler Silent Armor's on my chevy and loved them. Thats probably what I'll be going back to next.

I ran Nittos on my F-150 and got great miles out of them with proper inflation and rotation. As soon as my BFG's are done on my F350 I will be switching over to Nitto's.

The only thing that bothers me is the drone/noise of the Nitto's. I can hear it with the windows down on a nice day but with the windows up and radio on, it's not noticeable.

I hear the Nittos are great on lighter trucks like 150's and explorers. Yeah im way far past how the tire looks at this point so, if theres noticable nosie thats a deal killer

My terra graplers went from 100% tread to about 50% in the first 8k miles. They really slowed down in wear after the first 50% was gone. I was disapointed in the snow and mud traction. I loved Nittos on my Mustang so I fugured I would give the E range tire a shot!

I will try something else once fall comes!

I am still surprised in these tires as they are very quiet for an MT and the ride is great. I can't recommend these tires enough. I have friends who have bought these simply because they have seen how well they have held up on my truck. I will prolly re purchase these again if I can get a good deal, if not my second choice would be the Yokohama Geolanders. I have two buds with them in 35's and they look great and seem to being wearing excellent.
