I've used them both and i have to say the Nittos because of the price. I got the same mileage and everything else was comparable between the two in the rest of the areas. But that is just my two cents.

I have the Nittos, not thrilled with tread life. Plus i run 325 and if the roads are wet at all i can break them loose without even blinking, making it quite a pain in the *** to pull out if anyone is half a mile down the road. And the nittos and Toyos are the same tread design

Thumbs up Toyo's it is!

Thanks for everyone's input! I have received a good bit more positive comments on the Toyo's, and was told by several people in the buisness that Nitto is a lower grade budget-friendly brand, and that Toyo is definitely a more dependable high quality company....We shall see! I ordered the Toyo Open Country AT in a 285/75 R17 E. I think these will look great on my stock '06 F-250 FX4. I'll send a pic when I get them mounted! Thanks again!

Interesting...I was actually able to get the Toyo's for the same price as the Nitto's would have cost me through my buddy who has a few tire shops.

Congrats on getting them - I think you'll be pleased.

I ran them on my '95 F150 and I'm running them on my F350. Good tires!
