    I just had all four Toyos replaced via warranty with 265 50/20 Michelin Latitudes. I have about 40 miles on them so I haven't got anything to really report. But I do think they make my speedo/odo inaccurate.

    Was there something wrong with the Toyo's? Just curious as to the reason they would replace the tires on warranty.

    One of them was unbalancable, and they tried to replace it but the tire dealer told them that that particular Toyo was discontinued. So they bought me Michelin Latitudes- though I don't know if they are the Tour HP or the Sport or the ICE-X. I'll have to remember to look in the morning. I suspect the bottom-line Sports, though.

    I think I have the same issue. I had them rotated a while back at the dealer closest to me and and when I left the there the steering wheel would shake at about 65 mph. I took it back and I'm almost certain they just rotated them back like they were. I have the same Toyo's as you did I'm betting.
    Guess I should take it back to where I bought it at the next rotation time, then complain to them if/when it happens again. The truck only has 16k on it.

    I just put a set of Nitto Dune Grapplers on in 265/50r20 and they ride better than the Goodyears I had on it.
