Toyo M/T and Pro Comp Xtreme M/T

hey,

im just wondering if you guys could help me out.

Obvisally the Toyo is one of the best for street noise etc


but does anyone have the pro comp xtreme m/t?? they look kinda the same tread wise but im not sure if they are quiet or if their good in mud etc etc

im looking to get 265/75/16's and by going with the pro comps it saves me like $200+

so any help would be appreciated!

There was a writeup on them in a recent Petersons 4WD. They said they worked really well on the rocks and did fairly well in the mud. They also said they did really well on the street and would suit a DD really well. As far as wear, they said they rated on the harder side which meant they should last fairly long.

so i live in seattle and we see alot of rain, so i need to have a good tire for rain, and i would mainly be in mud, not really alot of rock.

So would you recommend saving the $200 or so bucks and just getting the PC or should i just say screw it and get the Toyo's??

IT's completely up to you. I know there are people around here running the Xtreme MT, so maybe at some point they will chime in. Either way I don't think you will be disappointed. According to Peterson's 4wd concerning on road driving:

"Wow, did these tires ride nicely! The noise from the tread was minimal, and they rolled smoothly on the asphalt. There was very little pull from side to side, even with an 11 1/2" width. Cornering these tires was not bad either, with the flat tread face and extended shoulder lugs keeping this tire flat on the ground and inhibiting it from rolling pressure too much onto one side of the tire."


It also later mentions that the tire displaced water in in the rain they drove in.

I have been researching this as well (Toyo Open Country MT vs. ProComp Extreme MT vs. BFG MT).

Today, I purchased 5 33x12.5 R15 Toyo Open Country MTs and mounted them to my Cragar Soft 8s for my summer/mud tire setup.

I kept my 5 33x10.5 R15 BFG ATs on my stock Alcoas for winter driving or longer freeway/highway trips.

So, you know my vote/conclusion.

Here's a couple a pics of the Toyo MT's I just put them on couple of weeks and love them I had BFG MT's before and the Toyo's are far better. I don't have any experience with the Pro Comps though.

Question for Elkfan2:

What size (width) rims are you using and what backspacing? Do you have any rubbing at full turn with the Toyo MTs? The Toyos are on my short list for 35" tires but I was concerned with the 13.5" width.

TIA

They are 15x8 I can't remember the backspace off the top of my head but it's standard rear wheel drive offset. Yes they do rub a little at a full turn but not bad and my control arms are roound instead of the square like the factor ones. If you go with a 10" wide wheel they won't rub, I just didn't want that wide of a stance.

Is it just me or does the rear axle look shifted way to far forward? I don't know if it is just an illusion from the pictures but it just doesn't look right. Do you have adjustable control arms?
