Iím currently running the Nitto tire
Nitto HD Grappler severe duty Service tire LT285 70 R17 ----------$1923.98 installed
These tires are tough as nails and are the same as the Toyo tire M55
In the equivalent tire as the Nitto
Toyo M55 severe duty ( they do not make the 285 size)
265 70 R17 --------------------- $1573
So to get the sever duty tire (M55)in a Toyo tire I have to go back down to a stock tire.
285/70R17 in a Toyo open cuntry MT -------------$1685 installed
The Toyo open country is a softer compound which means it will wear faster and it does not have the extra sidewall protection
So the decision Iím working on is do I spend the $$ and get the larger severe duty tire Nitto, or save $300 and drop back down to the stock size Toyo.
I put a shitton of weight in my Dodge --- overloaded is standard really. with the weight I carry the Toyo open country will wear faster and does not have the extra layer of protection.
