    I dont know how to do the poll, it seems for the price and kick ass ability... toyo seems like the choice, i know that duratrac has the looks... but I looked treaddepot.com for the toyo prices... they were a lot cheaper and a lot people love them!

    I just got the Nitto Terra Grappler and love the grip in the rain and dry pavement. I also like the aggressive tread patterns

    the nitto and Toyo are very similar, I'd almost say between the two just go with price. My toyo's have been on for 3 years now, close to 40,000 on them and still lots of tread left, I've been really happy with them.

    The nittos are made by toyo, there's a little difference of tread pattern. I ordered the dura trac's.

    Eh, i'm not a fan of the TGs...I had a set and they were slicks after 26k miles...I'd check out the Duratracs...They've got a great tread pattern and a beefy side wall! I think they look like a M/T meets A/T combo :)

    Open Countrys and TGs have a softer rubber compound...

    Toyo owns nitto. The difference is the rubber compound between the two with the toyos having a harder rubber compound.
    I love my toyos. I couldn't be happier with them. They have exceeded my expectations for an A/T tire.

    the people here sure likes duratrac but I dont like the side-wall with that with pattern... I think is fucking ugly with that... I like the treads but the side-wall thing turns me off!

    I have the Toyo's currently and they do above average in mud,snow & ice... but, the rain they're pretty scetchy including poor traction from stops as well as a weak sidewall when cornering. needless to say I will be purchasing the Duratracs at the end of summer. Good Luck!

    Had Toyo Open Country AT, they were good... lasted me a bit over 30,000 miles (I don't like driving them when there is little tread left.. no flats that way).

    The next set I got were Cooper Discoverer ATRs... about the same as the Toyos... liked them fine.

    Just went from NTGs to DuraTracs....was completely happy with the NTGs but decided to give the duratracs a shot...got better rebates & incentives, likin the aggro tread pattern. Diggin them so far, we'll see how they hold up...........no worse on frwy than my balding NTGs. The NTGs were already on the truck so who knows how many miles they had on them. Looked like about half the tread was there compared to new ones & I put over 20k on them & they still had at least another 8k of tread left, just not sure how useful that little bit woulda been and they were starting to get a bit dried out from age & being parked outside before I got the truck. No complaints here about them..............

    The NTGs you had probably had 20k on em...Mine didn't hold up for shit...I'll never buy em again. I went with the Hankook Dynapro A/Ts this time around...so far I love em...I've taken out into the deep sand, loose gravel and some mud and they did awesome :D
