    i think the nitto's are cheaper than the toyo's but not that many places sell toyo either.

    I had a set of toyo's on my old truck, I liked them, they did a good job on pretty much every surface, and worn really good. Never had any nitto's.

    Nitto is actually owned by the Toyo company. The rubber compound is different between the two tires, where Toyo has a harder rubber. IMHO Toyo has a better tread life over the Nitto's and provides more for your $. It's worth the extra 50$ per tire when you get more mileage out of them.
    In saying this, I've researched both alot and I'm picking the toyos. I'm getting my set in a month or so.
