    Like the title says, my new 285/75/16 Toyo Open Country M/Ts came in today to replace the 305/70/16 Nitto Terra Grapplers that were slashed a couple of weeks ago.

    I decided to go back down so my speedometer's reading is accurate again. They're way louder, too. Smooth ride, though. No complaints.

    Nice!!! I got a set exactly like yours on my 1998 as well. Love them so, even though they were the most expensive set i've bought to date.. Gas mileage is in tears, but I made that grand choice.

    Liking them a lot. They look really good. The Nittos and Toyos have their own pros and cons. The Nittos were a great tire and I'd recommend them to anyone but I was just ready for something new. These are definitely louder on the highway so I just turn my music up louder plus they look waaaay more badass. I wanted to go down in size just because I have a 3RZ and it was a lot of strain on the engine pushing those 305s around. Plus, my speedometer's back to being accurate again.

    Sweet! I've got these in 265/70R17. Toyo's have been my favorites for years and used to run their AT's in the past as well.

    I hear that. I was loving driving around with them today. They look mean as hell, too. I was sold when I found out that Toyos are made by the same company as Nitto because I loved my Terra Grapplers.

    Honestly, it wasn't that bad. I was able to get through plenty and I was still averaging 20 mpg, I just didn't have a lot of pick up.

    Right. That's what I meant. And, yeah, the side lugs are pretty deep. I love 'em.
