Toyo M/T's and towing

How do the Toyo Open Country MT's hold up with towing? I need new rubber and have been reading everything on the internet until my eyes started bleeding. I need a tire good for towing and will get me to work in all kinds of weather and last for a while.
Thanks

Hey man, I know I don't have a Ford diesel and my Toyo's are only 33" but man...

...THEY ROCK.

Never worried me when towin' some heavy (no joke) trailers. Hold up to the pressure very well and handle long rides weighted down with no problem. Hope that helps.

I havent had any problems with the weight, mine are load range E. But I think with a trailer...I tow almost a 7,000lbs trailer everyday during a 5 day work week does show some tread wear.

They suck..howl and lousy wet traction. Get good AT's best option for towing. I have tried Procomp extream AT's..better than the Toyos.

Just did a 2000 mile tow at over 18,000lbs. The Toyo MT's tow great. Total confidence and no issues. However they're loud on the highway. Too loud for me.

I had the toyo's and ya they handle towing fine but they chew up quickly and really and m/t tire is going to chew up quickly when you tow heavier weights with it. I now have bfg m/t km2's and have towed alot with them but they also have chewed up. I am in need of new tires now and am going to try out mickey thompson baja atz's
