Re: AT tires

Alex, I swear by the Toyo Open Country AT's. Kari has the LT265's on her Pathfinder! Love them. Had them (different set)on my old Pathfinder before I wrote it off. Would buy them again in a heart beat and they will far outlast the Mickey Thompsons. You can take my word since we travel in similar conditions. I alway threaten swapping them onto the FJ but she would cut me off.

Also the lugs are farther than they appear in your pic and do well in light mud. Although haven't tried them in anything to serious.

Re: AT tires

the terras are good. I had them (35s) on my old f150. Nice tire.

I have Revos on my FJ. Great all around tire. Unstoppable in the snow and good in the dirt.

Re: AT tires

Great. That's what I want to hear - real persons opinions on their experience.

I like Toyos as well Bodegas, but didn't had any experience with them. Does anyone knows if 285/75 is out yet? I can't find this size anywhere.

Re: AT tires

Very happy with my Toyo's as an all-around tire, they do well in snow, great on the highway, great on trails, and OK in mud. No experience with the others mentioned, but the Nitto's are the same tire AFAIK.

Re: AT tires

Seems you've narrowed it down to these choices, but i'd also consider the Bridgestone Dueler A/T Revos...I couldn't be happier with these tires.

Something else to consider.

Re: AT tires

Nitto and Toyo look so similar...

Uphill loves his Nittos.
