    Anyone running these tires? Guy at tire warehouse told me they are a well made soft rubber quiet tire for an MT.

    80% of my driving is on the road, so quieter the better. I like the tread on them and the 10 ply quality.

    Is it worth the ~$240/tire?

    I have 285/70R18s Toyo MTs...very happy with them. They are very quiet on the highway going 70. You will definitely hear a hummm...just turn up the radio. I am used to it by now, don't even notice. I don't know if $240 is a good price, maybe the others can weigh in. Mine were listed around $400 I think, paid $350.

    The MTs look sick, would probably buy again or get the BFG ATs. I like the aggressive look of the MTs.

    having done it many times in the past, i would no longer put an mt tire on a daily driver. while they "look" great being so aggressive, the noise, poor wet weather performance and gas mileage decrease from an mt tread are not worth it.

    i was happiest running at tires for my commuting/dd purposes, and then swapping out mt tires on cheap steelies when i went wheeling. i realize this is a more expensive option up front than some people care to spend, but in reality, having two sets of tires for dedicated purposes worked out really, really well for me. if i was still wheeling my rig, this is the route i would go. otherwise i would just stick with the tire that best suited the majority of my driving, in this case, an at tire. toyo makes a hell of a nice at, btw. good luck with your decision.

    The Procomp 6" is $1500, however before xmas 4WP had a 20% off discount. I got a local shop to match the price. I paid $1200 for labor, but that includes the mounting, balance of tires, alignment. Everything out the door was just over $5K - wheels were $200/ea and I mentioned the tires were $350/ea. Texas state tax (almost 9%) sucked... I saved up for a long time, money well spent IMO!

    I would agree with Jackhart though - if you don't need an MT, there are some pretty agressive ATs that might work. I saw someone with the Hankook MTs the other day and they looked nice - might be an option, I would think they would be a little cheaper.

    Probably 3-4 MPGs...they are very heavy. Toyo has all the specs on their website. I know my 18s are around 70lbs each...that is more than double what the stock tire weighs.
