TOYO Tires, anyone have them....

.....looking at new tires for my 07 Sahara Unlimited (18" wheels) and was just wondering if anyone has any thoughts on Toyo tires. Looking for something fairly aggressive with a smooth quite as possible ride on the highway. Very seldom do I get off in the rough stuff that my Duelers AT's couldn't handle.

I've been riding mine for almost 18 months. I love them. I don't do any crawling, but they handle excellent on trails, as well as on road. My jeep is a DD.

Are you running the Open Country A/T?

They are a great tire. I have them on my rig and love them. They have a good somewhat aggressive look without being to intrusive, they have great road manners, a soft and quiet ride and a formidable tread life considering they are a M/T. They can get spendy especially as you go up in size but imo they are absolutely worth it even more so if its a daily driver.

toyo m/t here. they are al great tire, probably the best a/t tire i have ever owned. in the rain on pavement in sand and on most conditions they work well. like all a/r tires they struggle in the mud and replacement for 18" rims my lowest quote was around $400 per tire. i have 30k miles on them and they will probably be replaced with BFG a/ts

I have the 35's Toyo M/T's. Havent been disappointed with this tire yet. Wearing fairly well so far, not very loud on the fwy compaired to most M/T's. Sipping makes them decent in rain/ice and I did a little snow driving this year and had no problems. They are a little more expensive per tire then BFG but I believe it was worth it, atleast with a 16" rim.

I had a set of 35" m/t's on a pickup. Best tire i have ever owned. Excelent tread life and relatively quiet. I prefer this tire to the km2's because the same size toyo is much wider, the tread is 1.5-2" wider. I want the toyo's on the jeep but can only get 35's in a class E load rating. The toyo is one tuff, and heavy tire. I am concerened an E rated tire may be to much for a jeep.

Its not. I have 37's and it does fine on road and on the rocks.

My wife has the A/T's on her Xterra and loves them. Put them on just befroe winter hit in Michigan and she never had and issue in any winter weather. Never been off road with them but for DD purposes they are perfect. Very road quiet also.

I had the Toyo MTs on my TJ - GREAT offroad - pretty good everywhere else even standing water on the street - some sound - but not as bad as BFG MTs (older style)

I have the Toyo ATs on my JK - never been offroad - GREAT on the street/snow - very quiet - I had a shop swap them for the stockers w/ less than 200 miles on the JK when I got it.

(I also had the Toyo ATs on my WJ) - Can you tell I like Toyos....

Another vote here for the Toyo MT's! Had them on for 16,000 Km's now and have nothing but great things to say. Good manners on road, low noise on highway for an m/t, and the traction offroad is amazing. They're also good in the rain and snow as well, much better than most m/t's.

Only downsides are that they're expensive and heavy. But the cost is worth it IMO, and the weight doesn't bother me at all.
