Open Country Tires

the countdown is on...25 days and I get my 2005 DC Silver 4x4 auto Tacoma. The current owner just put 2 Toyo open country P245/70R16 tires on the rear but still has the Dunlops on the front. I was thinking about getting another pair of the open country's for the front. What are your thoughts? Have any of you used them? They look great but I haven't driven them yet. Thanks for your help!

Stock come with 245/75/16 tires. make sure you check the size on the front. If they are not the same size as the rear you need to change them unless you only drives in 2wd. Tacoma does not have center differential, the drive train will bind if you put it in 4wd when the tire size is different front to back.

Another thing to keep in mind that not all 245/75/16 tire has the same diameter, some brands are bigger than others. Check the spec of the tire from the manufacture. If you are going to put two brands of tire on the truck make sure they are as close as possible in diameter.
BTW, congrats on the new truck!

Thank you

I have been waiting for 3 years to buy one. Tires should all match up #'s wise. Do you have any thoughts on the Toyo tire? Will I be happy?

Have not heard anything bad about Toyo. A lot of happy Toyo owners. Toyo Open Contry is similar to Nitto Terra Grappler, Toyo owns Nitto, but with harder rubber so it should last longer.
Depends on what you are going to use you truck for you'll need to decided if you want P rated tire or LT rated tire. LT tire will have stronger sidewall but heavier and ride will be stiffer. P tire will ride smoother and lighter.
