Toyo MTR???

Are the Toyo MTR's any good? I can get a used set for $300( asking price, prob. can get him to drop the price a little)

Or what is a good tire for towing and going off roading (as in hay fields and off the dirt road.....not rock crawling or anything like that.) Will be 16 inch rim. 35 inch tire. Or maybe 37's.

Will 37's rub on a 4 inch lift. I have leaf springs in the front. I would like to use the stcok rims.

hey my .02 again....

the stock wheel is only 7.5" wide...while a lot of guys do it, I highly advise against running bigger tires on them unless you find a narrow tire. A 10 wide...maybe a 10.50 is all you want to run on a stock wheel....any wider and you stress the sidewalls, and you can create more heat in the tire during normal use which can make the tread separate which is very dangerous...... If you want to run a wider tire and are short on cash, you can buy steel wheels for less than $80 a piece..... Do you remember the Firestone incident a few years ago? There wasn't a defect in the tires....it was a miscommunication between ford and firestone which caused excess heat in the tires....that made the tread separate and 11 people died and 271 people were injured.... IMO be safe ..... my rant is over

Beware!!!! The King Has Returned
