    285/75/16 MTZ's.... OME lift(885s)...4:88 gears.... Front and rear ARB.... Homemade skids
    Does anyone run a toyo mt on there 4 banger.. Looking at getting these tires but just worried about the weight being an issue for my truck. This tire for a 265/75/16 comes only in 10 ply nd weighs a whooping 58 pounds.... crippes!!!
    The other tire I'm looking at is the stt in an 8 ply so alot lighter, couldnt find the weight .
    I can get the toyo cheaper then the stt, otherwise this would be a no brainer for me.
    Any input would be appreciated

    im gonna say that you will notice a big difference in the ride and the acceleration of the truck. it will lag a bit im pretty positive. thats a heavy ass tire............awesome tire, but it is real heavy.

    I just bought the Toyo MTs and I am glad I got them (other than price). The only thing I noticed is I have to brake alot sooner. After driving for about an hour in stop and go I was used to it tho. Also I removed the secondary filter after a day of driving with these tires. Removing that little filter has the truck back to feeling like it was stock.

    Also I wanted to add, these are MTs, not AT's like the BFGs. I think the reason you see alot of BFG/ATs is no one really wants to commit to haveing a true MT. The thing about the Toyo's is that they have sipping like a TA, similar to the Terra Grappler, but have MT lug spacing and side lugs. PLUS they look 4359894058 times better than the BFG/ATs.

    Just over $1200 at Discount Tire. Not the cheapest, but not the most expensive either, at least from my searching.

    got mine 6 weeks ago265/70/16's on my v6 trd to replace bfg a/t's .i can't speak for the 4 cylinder performance may be too heavy. paid 116.75 ea. you have to find a dealer that will price match the internet!!!!!! align,mount,balance,valve stems,road hazard & free rotation . total was approx. $620 something don't put that money in their pocket .the dealer wanted 189.00 per tire.i've notice a little drop in mpg (not much) and these tires are awesome in rain ,around town,on highway(not noisy) and just went cuckoo in maine on some nasty logging roads .what a i difference over the bfg"s imho

    The A/T's do cost less than the MTs by up to $60-100 per tire. The OP was asking about MT's :)

    I would look for a lighter tire with the 4cyl. Basic rule-- keep the unsprung weight down as much as you can. Lighter wheels/tires = :burnrubber:

    If the intended purpose is to spend most of the time off road then yes, get the tire with bigger lugs, extra plies.
    Keep in mind there is ALWAYS a compromise to be made.
