Review: Toyo Open Country M/T

Brand: Toyo
Model: Open Country M/T
Price: Currently $387.99ea on 4wheelparts.com with free shipping
Size: 35 x 12.5 x 20
Tread Depth New: 20/32”
Current Tread Depth: 20/32”
Mileage when installed: 87,080
Current mileage: 88,179
Total mileage: 1,099
Comparison Tire: Goodyear Wrangler AT/S


Appearance
Very aggressive and bulky looking tread pattern consistent with a M/T mud tire. Tread lugs are very deep at 20/32” brand new. Very aggressive sidewall lugs, one of only a few tires with sidewall lug design.

Noise
These tires produce a fair amount of noise/hum. Obviously, much more than stock tires. I have had Goodyear Duratrac tires on my prior truck and these produce ~20% more hum than those. With the windows down, wind essentially cancels out the noise. Normal radio volume overcomes the road noise for the most part. I feel that they are noisier in town 40-50mph versus highway 60-80mph which is surprising and beneficial in my opinion. I attribute the noise level of these tires to the lug depth. All in all, these are a mud tire and this should be expected when purchasing a tire of this caliber.

Traction
Traction is impressive, both dry and wet. On dry roads, even with my 500HP tune, the tires grab traction extremely well. Wet traction is a high point for the Open Country M/T tire, under moderately hard acceleration, the tires don’t slip, don’t spin and provide predictable tracking. My truck would spin the stock tires (with 75% tread) under light acceleration in rain all the time and would “float” doing normal city (40-60mph) driving. I never felt comfortable as those tires were unpredictable. The deep lug pattern of the Open Country M/T help channel water away and provide a nice stable track.

Wear
No wear yet – will update.

Ride Comfort & Stability
General ride is comfortable, not really any stiffer than the stock Goodyear tires. I can feel the lugs when starting from a dead stop, but cannot feel them when slowing to a stop. These tires do not seem to have any side roll and feel very stable up to 100mph (at least that’s as fast as I’ve been with them.

Towing
No experience yet – will update.

Overall
I am beyond happy with these tires so far. I will be sure to update if I have any more information as I gain more experience with the tires. I am looking forward to testing them in the snow next winter, but that update will have to wait for quite awhile.

Feel free to ask questions and I will update the ongoing thread as I gain more mileage with them.

Thanks for the review, I am very happy with mine as well and have over 20,000 on mine now with over well over half the tread left. I rotate every 5,000. Some people bash the toyo's (haters love to hate) but there is a reason you see them on more trucks than any other tire.

Very detailed review. I predict you will grow to love them, I love mine. (first set, but looks like I'll stick with them) The "E" load range seems to hold up well under these heavy diesels. Those aggressive sidewall lugs really help protect the sidewall when aired down off road, and seem to add to the already incredible traction. I go down to 20psi off road. I may try out 15 next time, sidewalls are stiff and I run a narrow wheel, so I haven't peeled a bead yet. (not apposed to beadlocks, just can't afford them yet) I've noticed the same about the noise. Mine are quieter at 65 than 45. I love the hum at 45, not too loud, just enough to provide a nice soundtrack to the truck. (other than the 7.3 clatter)

Getting ready to replace mine. Will get to 40k before they are retired in a few weeks. Plan to get another set, though in size 295/65/20.

These are incredibly tough tires.

I love mine also (35/20). They were on the truck when I bought it so I dont know how many miles the guy before me had on them but Im getting ready to get new ones. I love the look and have never had a problem so no need to go with something different. I drove around all winter with them in MD in deep snow and ice and they did fine.

That's great to hear, I have had several sets of a/t's now I am going to a 37 and a/t II's aren't offered in that size.

48,800 on my '03 with M/T's & love 'em. They have 5/32nds left now. I got 57k out of the previous set of A/T's, but the off-road capability was just not there.

Just picked up my Platinum '14 today, and it is scheduled for the level lift, wheels, and a set of 35/12.50's tomorrow.

While I like the looks of the AT2s, I realized that in the size I want (295/65/20) they only have 2 ply sidewalls. That's a deal breaker for me as I often carry a 4k LB Lance camper. So sticking with the MTs which have 3 ply sidewalls.
