Chunked my Toyos

Looking for opinions; are these tires toast?

I was heading up a rocky trail (yeah, street tires ) and my front hubs did not engage (I'll have another post on that.) The rears spun and tore off parts of many tread blocks, and a couple complete blocks. See photo. The damage didn't penetrate the carcass, the blocks pretty much just sheared off.

I'll be towing my 8k 5er soon, and if money were no object I'd slap new ones on. But if this is a safety issue I 'll have to bite the bullet.

I'd appreciate your opinions.

Sorry man but there is no way in hell I would tow a 5er with those tires....I would risk driving empty MAYBE but no way would I be pulling anything.

As much as it sucks you are gonna have to bite the bullet and get some new ones. Haha there is a reason those are made for the street.

I did not buy them, they were new on the truck when I bought it. No paperwork so I can't even know where purchased from. And yeah, I have serious doubts about them too, guess I was hoping for a Toyo engineer to say "yeah no prob" but that's wishing waaay too hard.

So I'll be searching the threads for on/off road replacement recommendations...

I agree w/armyguy209. Just making some assumptions here, but if you're towing the 5er, you probably got the family along. Wouldn't want anything to happen to them.

nitto all terrains are a good choice for an aggressive-ish street tire, and not very expensive either.

Yep, thanks for the reality check Darryl! Once upon a time I'd drive one these with hardly a second thought, but now... I can afford new tires, and better safe than sorry for all the others counting on me to do the right thing.

The Nittos look good, but I want a large dealer network. No knowing where I might be when I need service/warranty on them. Leaning to Firestone Transforce AT at the moment, any opinions? Mostly a tow rig, the tires just gotta take the occasional 4X4 beating.

ive got the general grabber a/t on my work truck and i tow all the time with it and go onto jobsites and gravel pits and have no real problems. the added bonus of working well in the rain and being snow rated was a good plus too.
