Yea i love my toyos, they wear great, about 1/4 of my driving is aired down to 22psi front and 20psi back, and they still have never weared weird. As far as traction in sand i have done some pretty sandy trails with 2x4 with no problems, now my old Rugged Fails thats a whole nother story.

I have the NDG's and I love them!! Now I havent tested them in sand but I have used them in very loose dirt and they did great!! The flames on the side look sick in person. I get compliments all the time on my tires! I have also had them for 2 winters now and no problems so far. I think they work just fine in the rain. Not the greatest on snow though. But then again, I have 18x9"s and you know how wide tires are in the snow.

I have the toyo's in the 285/50/20. They are a great tire! They have the rim protector! Not sure if the coopers do? These tires wear evenly and last forever. Great traction in all conditions. I've been very pleased with them. They got my vote.

got them at tire kingdom. few reasons i got them so cheap. most important being, i have a nack for bargaining and persuasion.... but a couple things that helped me get them for cheap was 1) we were getting tires for another car at the same time, so we ewre able to get them to cut down the price for that. 2) they were a floor modle, meaning that all 4 were sitting out on display. and had been sitting there for a few months. i know, who cares, being on display won't F up the tires, but i still bargained for a discount because of it

they were originally going to be $600 for the tires and another $80 for mount, ballance, etc....so i was happy

x2

My dunes have done GREAT in mud, sand, shape rock, sand stone, rain. and Maybe snow if I wasn't 2x4.

They have 26k miles and still have a ton of tread left.

I had the Nitto TG's , honestly thought they would hold up much longer but I managed to somehow get about close to 40,000 miles outta them. Just threw on some Toyo Open Country MT's , we will see how well these hold up, im hoping a little closer to 50,000 this time.

So, today my tire shopping just ended!! I went around at work asking everyone if they had a set of 18 rims for my truck...and a co-worker was like my neighbor just put out a set of tires and wheels the other day you should go check-em out. I go after work to see the tires and rims, and guess what.... turns out to be the Nitto Terra grapplers on some nice 18 rims ( dont know yet what the rims are didnt look closely). I was like SICK DUUUUDE! lol thats what i was lookin to get!! Then he was like all I want is $550 for everything....and i was like SIIICK DUUUUUDDE! so just to make sure, we put the them on my truck to see if everything is all right. and it was all good....so tomorrow im gonna be addin my toytec 3" lift after work and if i get done early enough i will get the tires tomorrow too, if not ill go sunday!!

Toyo A/T's and Nitta Terras are basically the same tire. Toyo owns Nitto.
