New Toyo AT II's Installed

Just a quick post to say that I am now trying out Toyo's new Open Country AT II tires on my /06 SC, and have posted two pictures to my album.
I'll have more to say about them once the snow flies.

Press on regardless!

Thanks FX4MT for posting my tire pic's to the open forum.
After driving around after our first major snow storm, the ABS no longer comes into play under normal braking, as it did before with the TOYO HT's.
Over all road feel in my hands & hips is much improved as well.
Just have to wait for the opportunity to drive through some deeper snow in order to judge things further. (a run out to Kingston Ont.is due soon)

Yes, these tires have a slightly louder and differant sound pitch to them at highway speeds on bare pavement, so I think that I can live with the trade off. The W.A.F. factor is fine with it as well, for tire noise and a more controlled ride (of which she first picked up on)

Press on regardless!

No problem, sometimes I take off my Mockerator crown and do something useful.

I installed same. They work great, although on ice they aren't quite as good as Blizzaks but they do work well. Liked them so much my GF put them on her Jeep and uses them mudding and offroading year round (went thru 1ft+ fresh snow no problem !).

On ice and in water there is better out there, but as a general all around tire they are definitely great. The tire noise is minimal and show minimum wear after about 8 months of use.

Few years ago I had them and I liked them, the rubber stayed softer for longer time than some other tires as they got older. Are they still made in Japan. Mine was back then. Hope you r running 275s...how much did they cost?

The AT II's that I recently had installed were made in the USA.
I'm running the optional 265/60/18's on my FX rims.
As for the cost, well... I lost 27% of my original investment of the HT Toyo's (pro rated) that I had installed last year, when Toyo agreed to a swap out for the new AT II's. My total tire investment is close to $1500.00 now, with the truck performing far better now with regards to the snow etc.

Press on regardless!
