    I am going to the tire shop tomorrow and can't decide if I want the Toyo Open Country A/T LT 6 ply or P-metric. I got a quote of $739 for the LT 6 ply and $673.75 for the P-metric, installed. The LT's are 16/32 tread and the P-metrics are 13/32. Any suggestions?

    Very true... How many miles do you think the extra 3/32 of the LT's will give me?

    Thanks for your input guys. I went ahead and ordered the LT's, having them installed tomorrow with my FJ wheels. I went with LT's for the extra tread. I don't think I will notice to much of a difference as far as MPG's go.
