    I want to upgrade tires. My problem is I have a 60 mile daily commute to work and on the weekend I spend my time at the beach (driving onto the beach). I am looking for a good tire for both. Something aggressive that will last, and will give me better beach performance than the crappy Dunlop on now. I was thinking of the Toyo Open Country A/T. Any luck with those?

    I don't know much about toyos, but I would recommend nitto terra grapplers. I'm hoping to pic up a set when I need to replace the dunflops

    I love my Nitto DG's. Great on the street and since you said you drive on the beach, it's great for that too!;)

    Build thread in sig...

    I agree, i don't have them, but i have seen them many times. the dune grapplers have a fairly flat prifile that works on the raod, but are designed for the sand...hence the name

    i would go with toyo A/T i have a set on right now and there smooth and they have an agressive look to it , down here we have snow and slush and there very solid on the road so i imagine they will workout good on the beach !! for more of an agressive look you can choose toyo M/T ,there as smooth as the A/T .thats what im running this summer they might be a bit more expensive but allaround its a good tire !! go for it !!

    Tire Rack sells a set of Revo, $150, these are not ideal for payload thou.
    I think, toyo, nitto, BFG, Bridgestone and General makes good tires. You really need to go on the specs to get the ones you want and shop around on the prices. Takes alot of time! I was looking at Toyo, the store here wanted a lot of money for them.

    I have the BFG Mud/Terrain and I am really digging these. I had the Bridgestone Duellers on before and I really liked those but they were strictly a road tire.

    I'm putting the Michelin LTX tires on mine in 235-70-15 on mine. The tire calcualtor here on TW says those ought to get my speedo correct and the extra width will help on windy days crossing the Skyway Bridge. The extra width will also allow me to better float across the sand at the beach.
