Toyo Mud Terrain?

I currently have a set of 37x13.5 Nitto Mud grapplers. They are getting pretty worn and I want to purchase some new tires. Lots of guys tell me Toyo M/T is the way to go good on the highway get a good amount of use out of them.

I personally LIKE the noise the tires make, handle how I expected them on the highway and did amazing every time I went mudding.

I just don't like how I have 50000kms and they are almost worn out.

So how are Toyo M/T in comparison to the Nitto Mud grappler in the mud?

In the mud they are great... but from my experience don't expect to get any more tread life out of them than the nittos, maybe 25-30K miles at best from what I've seen out of the three or four sets i've run.

I have a week off work, truck is pretty much parked until I get new tires. Just trying to find the best fit. Did the Toyos do as well or better then Nitto?

Nitto and Toyo are sister companies. If you are happy with the Nitto's stick with them. No tire with that kind of tread pattern is going to give you any longevity on the road. That's just the way it is.

Never run nitto's, but like he said, they are sister companies, they are a very similar tire. If you like the traction of the nitt's run em, or try the toyo's. But don't go to toyo's expecting great tread life, you will be disappointed.

I love the Toyo M/Ts period.

On a street queen you'll get 50,000+ miles. I've proven it. I rotate regularly and I don't do burnouts like a tard. My original set is still in the shed, I use them for longterm parking and winter driving to keep my new wheels looking new.

Currently I have close to 5,000 on the 2nd set and they still have their tits. They are very quiet, ride and control very nicely with minimal wandering and they just look bad arse.

Buddy of mine ran Toyo MT on his cummins and he said they sucked in the mud. They did wear nice though and he didnt treat them to nice. Also heard they suck when its wet out. I am going with Nitto Mud Grapplers my truck sees maybe 8000 miles a year so even if I only get 20,000 miles out of the tires they will last me over 2 years.

What pressure is everyone running in the TOYO's? I have about 3k miles on a new set and want to get the most out of them!
