Toyo Open Country M/T

For those of you with the Toyo M/T's I have a few questions. How many miles are you getting out of a set of tire's? How's the ride? and how loud are they? I like the way they look and want to get some when my A/T's wear out but the M/T's are about $400 more a set than the A/T's but if they get the same mileage that the A/T's get then I'm all for the M/T's.

i have 30000 miles on my mt and they still have about half the thread. they arent as bad noise as i thought they would be but they still hum pretty good runnin down the highway. as for the ride i have 20" rim on 35" tires so the sidewalls are short and thick so the ride isnt as good as you get with 16" or 18" tires but i live with it for the looks of the tire and the offroad use that i get out of them. over all they are a very good tire

35's on 20's probably aren't cheap. I'm running 18's so hopefully the ride and price would be a little better.

I've had mine for a little over 15k and I hardly notice the road noise compared to my last MT tires. Here are several picks that I just took for you, but I don't think they do justice since it's dark and they are pretty dirty.

Id be willing to bet that the Toyo M/Ts are about the best M/T out there from what Ive heard. Expensive? Yeah, but they should be worth it.

Your running 16" wheels though. He's runnin 20's. The bigger the wheel the more the tire cost. I have 18's and if I had to do it again I would go 17's.
