    I've had 2 sets of them, I've actually got a picture of one of mine in this section titled "are my tires dead". They've held up great, the first set had 45,000 on them before I replaced them with the same, this current set is about 4 years old and has about 50,000 on them. Lately they've started getting slippery in the rain, I think it's mainly age and they've gotten a little hard over the years, but they've been really good. You don't see many reviews about them, and they definitely aren't a favorite on this forum at least (mainly Michelin AT2's and Nitto's, but Nitto and Toyo are almost the same tire) but they aren't loud, good in snow, good in rain, good dry, and good for the little bit of offroading I've done. I'm not replacing them with the same this time around because my driving has become mainly interstate commuting, so I need a set of road tires, but if you're looking for AT's these should be in your top 5.

    Well I thank you for that bit of info. I really like the looks of them and I'm getting new wheels and tires in the spring and was trying to decide between those and the Cooper Discoverer ATR.

    On my 2005 DC 4WD Taco, I had the both the Toyo Open Country A/T and the Cooper Discoverer ATR and would rate them BOTH as very good truck tires... Quiet on the highway, good desert and sand off roading, min. 35,000 miles for both (I don't like driving on bald tires, so you may get 40,000 out of them).

    Have you decided on tires/wheels yet? I've been reading up on the subject in preparation for a spring purchase as well. While I would love to go with the super aggressive look, I know that heavy M/T tires would be overkill for my driving.

    My local guy is pushing the Toyo Open Country A/T, and there are a few people riding them around here that really like them. But I think I'm leaning toward the Kumho SAT KL61 - have you looked at them?

    They actually have better tread ratings than the Toyo and get good reviews....

    I'll be interested to know what you decide to go with - I think we are looking for the same type of setup.

    I had the Toyo AT's before my Duratracs and I will never own then again... They were good in mud, great in snow, ok in ice, pathetic in the rain, never had them in sand. Being in Oregon when it rains damn near year round, they couldn't get it done for me! GL
