Default Toyo Open Country M/T Tires

I'm thinking about replacing my current tires with a set of Toyo M/T 37X13.5R18's.

I noticed they are a pretty heavy tire but that's OK. With 3.92's and a HEMI with a tune, I'm not worried about getting bogged down any.

Anyone have any experience with the Open Country M/T's?

Good or bad or indifferent is OK with me, just am looking for some input.

Let me know!

I have heard some good things about them, that they are great in all weather types for traction not the noisiest of tires and look really great too, also have good tread wear properties, i plan on putting those on when i get tires next!

I did hear one bad thing just last weekend while 4x4ing, the guy said they were noisy and he didn`t get lots of mileage out of them but performed well...this is just one bad review out of the many good i have heard!

I say go for it

Isn't that a similar setup to what Paris has? I've heard some really good reviews on those tires, a little too expensive for me, but I'd say go for it!

OHHHHHH, Pick me!!!! Pick me!!!! I have those! They are the quietest we have had yet. Most comfortable ride we've had for an aggressive treaded tire. Lmood was in the truck today and said it was a little rough, but he's a wussy! (Love ya' Adam!) Randy has been in the truck to, at Gatty and if he says anything negative, he doesn't get to ride shotgun next year! So trust me, without threats, I like em' and have read all relatively good results. 26,000 miles and no issues.

I have heard nothing but great things about those tires. I am going to get them as my next tire as well!

You are going to put 37" tires on your truck? How much higher are you lifting your truck up? Should look really good with some 37" tires!

In 98' we had another "big girl" and she was on Mickey Thompsons Super Swampers...but I cannot remember the size. But they were LOUD and very uncomfortable of a ride. I might have a pic lying around...I'll look tomorrow.

Thanks for the input, folks.

I talked to my neighbor today, who has them on his lifted RAM, and he told me when this set wears out, he's gonna get the same thing.

I'm gonna test fit a 37 and if it's too much, I'll back down to 35's. I'm not gonna go with an additional lift.

What's your current lift, Michael? I am too lazy to look in your personal details, sorry.
