Feedback on Toyo Open Country M/Ts?

Is anyone running them? 37x13.5x17s for $305 a pop. They seem to have good online reviews and are supposedly fairly quiet on the highway. Any real world experience/comparison would be appreciated. I would be going to them from 35x12.5 KM2s.

I really like them. I have their 37s on the JK (18" wheel), 37s on my daily driver (22" wheel) and 35s on my wife's Suburban (18" wheel). They are very quiet on the road and work well in the mud, snow and sand. My favorite tire before I tried Toyo was the BFG Mud Terrain. These Toyos perform as well off road as the BFG Mud Terrains, but the Toyos seem to grip a lot better in the rain.

Wow, I would consider you an expert! Thanks for the feedback and nice rides you have there...

The Jeep tracks well on the pavement? I was just a little concerned with the extra inch in width over my 12.5s.

my buddy has the 35s on f250, his front driveshaft is broke so he only has 2wd and when he tried peeling up my long uphill ice covered driveway in 2wd the left rear tire started to melt threw off some big chunks of rubber. tire tread looks like crap now.. i'm still plan on getting them(just not planning on spinning them in 2 and burning them up) i told him to contact toyo and maybe they would do something for him...

It tracks really well. I have the PSC hydro steering assist on the Jeep so that may help, but the dually has 13.50s on it as well and it does not follow the ruts in the road at all.

Nice rides HotDuck. I hear nothing but good about Toyos. I wish I could get a set.

They're heavy and expensive,thats about the only downside to the Toyos.

They're the easiest balancing M/T I've ever ran. I have a set of them (295s) on my Dodge 3500 right now. I don't think there is more than about 1.5oz on any of the tires.

Very smooth and very quiet on the highway. Great in everything but real sticky mud. Even then they aren't terrible.

I'm running the 35x13.50x15's on my Liberty,balance great(less then 2oz per tire),not very noisy(big downfall for me though,I like noisy),and grip very well in snow/ice.I have no comments for offroad since most of the trails here are snow filled so that will have to wait for summer.They are very heavy though,my 35" weigh like 89lbs just for the rubber each,a good 15-20lbs heavier then other "C" range 35" tire.

What do you think makes them so heavy? The obvious reason would be............more rubber! But where? Is it beneficial? Tougher? Stronger?

I did just get the 37s on. So far, great! I can definitely tell they are there. (Braking mainly) Haven't taken them off road but on road they track well and are pretty quiet. They sure look good too.

I like mine a lot, thinking of going to the 37" after these wear out.
