Toyo A/T

How do these hold up under these trucks? I tow 5 days a week but not very heavy, my work trailer is only about 5k w/o extra material(2k-5k depending the job) but i keep it well balanced so the pin weight is never overly high.

I am looking at what i think might be the perfect size, 305/60-20 just over 34" like my stock 275/65 but a more fitting 12" wide. Also will these clear on a stock height truck up front? I'd really like to keep the truck right where its at height wise.

I just need decent to good deep snow traction since i drive for the local Hospital in the winter when there is a state of emergency and I cant be getting stuck with 4-6 people in my truck! FWIW my old 315's BFG A/T's got me through fine on my old dodge, so as long as they match or are better than the BFG's im in good shape.

I had a set on a cummins. they were good in snow and rain but I did a lot of in town driving and treadlife was not very good. No burnouts but only lasted about 25000.

You may have a rubbing issue if your using stock wheels.

As for the way the tires perform, very well. I've had them on since I got my truck and they ride great and the wear is very good. I would buy again in a heart beat.

I love my Toyo A/Ts. I had a set on my Explorer and when I got my truck I put a set on. I love the performance of them.

My Toyo OC A/Ts have been great! Just had them rotated @ 40K. Still have some tread left, but I will probably replace them before winter gets here again.

I get them rotated every 5k at the tire place I bought them from. I keep an eye on the pressure (run 65psi all corners when empty - will run the rears up to 80 when towing my 12k 5th wheel). I mostly daily drive, but pull the aforementioned 5th wheel 4-5 times a year, I tow a boat to the lake a bunch, I've towed an Explorer on a car-hauler from Oregon to Sacramento, I've helped people move, hauled junk in there. I've been in rain, snow, some packed mud (nothing too mushy) and, on occasion, gravel roads.

That's my experience with them.

Cool cool, so the extra width may be a problem on the stock wheels even? I really just need a tire with a better foot print, the stock GY's suck worse than anything ive ever used on sand and living on the beach im on soft/sandy job sites on a pretty regular basis and need something wider to help out in that dept since i cant really air down while pulling my work trailer..

Just got rid of 325/60/20. I wouldnt recommend. Traction
In snow absolutely failed. I took them off for the winter, when
I went to get them put back on a couple weeks ago, all beads were
Cracked. Wear was average to less than average with all types
Of driving including tow. 10k miles and wear was starting to show.
No serious off roading, racing, hard driving. Regular driver in all situations.
For me, not up to task.
