I’ve owned 3 sets of Toyo’s and one thing I will say is they definitely wear like iron and hold up well in lava rock. I’ve done a lot of offroading in the lava flows of Hawaii with Toyo’s and they’ve stood up pretty well to it.
What’s cool about this tire, is at the time of this review, the Toyo Open Country MT has a 100% positive review rate at 4wheelparts.com. That’s pretty rare, usually there’s somebody that’s not happy with their tires.
The reviewers rated on a scale of 10 with the following:
- Traction: 10
- Cornering: 8
- Long Lasting 8
- Quiet 8
- Wears Evenly 6
I’m pretty surprised, I expected a few comments that the tires are noisy. But nobody said that, to the contrary, a lot of guys said the Toyo’s were very quiet. That has not been my experience. One set I had on my Bronco I took off at about 20K because of the noise.
Most reviewers of this tire said they got pretty long tread life. I would believe that based on my own experience with Toyo’s. They last and last and last. Pretty impressive for light truck tires.
This tire is a great all around work horse. It’s not the best at any one particular thing, but it rates very high in a number of categories with it’s users. Be sure to watch this video. It’s pretty good.
Toyo Open Country MT Tire Review Video
There were a few people who said they didn’t get the mileage they were expecting. I suspect the people that had wear issues were heavy on the throttle with high torque diesels. The over all consensus was the Toyo’s hold up really well.
Buy? Or Don’t Buy?
I would buy the Toyo Open Country MT.
June 2011 Update: That is how I felt about them until I had to take a set of Open Countrys off my Bronco because 3 out of 4 of them suffered from tread separation. They were the hi-way model of Open Country, not the MT’s. Now, would I buy them? I don’t think so. To be fair, every tire manufacture has tires that come apart from tread separation. But I’ve had 2 set’s of Toyo’s on my Bronco that had to come off because noise and or separation issues.
