Anyone running Toyo Open Country MT's on here? I do a fair bit of highway miles over the Rogers Pass, as well as a lot of offroading. Tire shop said these would be perfect, and should get me over 100,000 KM he said.

Looking at a set of 295/70R 17's for my stock 01 Dodge Offroad. Size should clear as they are just over 33". I can get em for a pretty sweet deal of $1,315 taxes included (Love my new job). If they rub, also looking at a 2" leveling spacers, which would make me 3" taller then a regular Dodge 4X4.

So these tires good/bad and why ya think so?

Thanks

I couldn't see you getting 100,000kms out of a set...

One of freinds has them and he has no complaints.

Our shop sells em, both company owner and one of our tire techs run em, the owner on a set of 18s, the other 33/13.5R15, the tech has been getting incredible wear on his lifted YJ on em, pretty good on road manners, damn good off of it too....at least that's what personal impressions are, not the sales material.

Thanks for the input, a bit conflicting though. Hey jakerngr what did your buddy have em on? I was looking at some swamper trXus's and they had great reviews, but on all light trucks, when they go on heavy ones they got crappy reviews for street milage.

Did you buddy do any burnouts with em, or drive em really hard?

My neighbor has them on a Dodge 2500 Diesel. He has 38000 KM on them and there is about 20% thread left.

Not gonna get much wear out of any tire on a diesel. For a nice all around tire I'm happy with the Pro Comp X Terrrains. [cheers]

we have a customer with them on a lj he has about 36000 on his and there under 40 % and thats a light jeep ... don't do the truxus either to soft a compound for the heavy trucks ...

I run them on my runner, I like them. Not sure how many km are on them but they have been on close to 2 years and I drive a lot still sitting at about 45-50%.

Cause Dodge put 1" taller springs in the offroad package trucks. Normally you would need a little lift for 33's but Im thinking they should clear fine, but am also thinking of getting the 2" spacers which would let me clear 35's as it would be same as regular dodge with 3" lift.

Thanks for all the input. I dont want an AT tire, but need something to handle well on the street and in snow, so think I might try a set of these. Ill let you know how they work for me, but probably wont get them for a couple more months.

I am running the open country A/Ts. Just came back from manning and they did pretty good in the snow etc.
My previous Michelin A/Ts lasted a 100K and I sold them with some life left in them. They had a harder rubber compound which makes them last very long but they were not as good in the snow or on wet pavement.

I know you don't want them, but it sounds to me that A/Ts would serve you better.
