Toyo Tires ?

Ok, its time for some new tires, I'm sick of my firestone 215s { and I don't trust them } even though their not recalled... Anyway I pretty much had my selection down to the Michelin LTX 235/75 15s, Now I'm leaning towards Toyo Open Country AT 235s... they seem like a good all season tire, with good tred life and a quite on the highway. Now I'm not an Avid Off Roader.. But I need tires to last all year round, handle the mud and snow, & ride smooth. Any opinions of either tires? or any suggestions ? Thanks guys

i have an 95 grand cherokee with 255 55 r18 toyo proxes st tires. i purchased them for 131 a tire, which out prices all of its competitors. it is a mean looking street tire and i have never had any problems, nor heard of anyone having any problems with them. they are quiet and hook up nicely on pavement, i would definitely recommend them.

What kind of lift are you running? suspension, or body? I've been thinking about lifting my jeep a few inches, problem is i'm short on dough.

i have the same tires and although they look cool and handle well, i think they are very noisey. so much so that i'm giving them back and getting falken S/TZ 04s. quiet is supposed to be one of their major strong points.

I've been running these for ~22k. Have been great for highway/o.k. for off-road. Wet traction is o.k. The little snow we had earlier in the year they did well. Treadwear has been good even though I am hard on tires.

My Toyos

Just a quick story for you guys. Last snow storm we had left us with about three inches, my dad had just bought an old beater f-150 to plow our driveway. He had been backing up the hill when his truck stalled out, so I backed my ZJ up & tied a line between the hitch and his bumper. With a little salt to cut though the ice we were on our way, I pulled his dead truck right to the top, then continued over the lawn (also uphill) in even more snow, never lost traction. These tires have been great so far, tread wear on mine have also been excelent w/ about 7-8k.

The Wranglers that came on our 95 GC lasted about 31kmi and had begun to squeal a lot when cornering. Replaced them with Michelin LTXs (235/75-15) and now have about 43kmi on those and they still have lots of tread left. They are fairly quiet, decent ride, pretty good in snow, and not very good in heavy rain (aquaplanes too easily). IMO, a very good all-around highway tire with a long life. YMMV

Been awhile since I got them- July 98 to be exact. They were $95 and change each, plus mounting, balancing, alignment, and tax. $460 out the door.
