Toyo Mud Terrain 33x13.5

ive found a good deal on some of these with steelies included for only $800. im really considering them and was wondering how much back spacing is needed and how well a 13.5" tire compares to a 12.5" as far as handling. i plan on running RC 3.25 inch lift which was designed for a 33x12.5

I'm running the 35x13.50's on 15x8's with 3.75" backspace. I put a couple washer behind my steering stops to keep them from rubbing the control arms and they clear everything else great.

By all accounts, it's a great tire. I hope to own some in 33 X 10.5 R15 in the future.

I've never heard a single bad thing about Toyo, except that some of them ride rough as hell, but those are the R16 ones (load D and especially E). The R15 (load C) should ride good though.

Thats a great deal. They are one of the best wearing and off-road radial DD tire. If the wheels dont fit, Sell/trade them on here for some that do. IMO id run 15x10 3.75BS, That wide you can hit single didget #'s and not have a problem with a bead or rubbing, If you do, The below is the best advice.

Thats cool they are true to the width. That might throw them in the pool of a different tire this time round for DD rubber. My krawlers still rub the LCAs but they are crazy wide, And tall for the size listed. But id be looking to run the same as you, If the rub, If they do its a plus as they are 13.50 wide my 15x10 3.75BS and you remedy would work.

I know your in wet country, Hows the highway speeds with them? I'm going to have a 100 mile a day round trip come December, Its all 55 to 65 MPH

They are very smooth riding and quiet at highway speeds, no hydroplaning. Extremely tough sidewalls and they hold a bead very good offroad, I regularly air down to 5 psi when offroading and 1-2psi for snow wheeling and have never lost a bead in the 3 years I have had them.

Sounds like a good tire. I like the wider tread and if they move good down the highway thats always a plus. I know they want a nice price for them, But sounds like they are worth it.
Good luck to the OP who's getting a killer deal on a set of tires. High end tire and steelies for a kicker. Post up some pic's when you get them on. Good luck
