Looking to get Toyo’s M55 or Toyos CT tires ?

Gotcha, sorry!
I think the M 55s will be the harder long lasting wearing ones but the CT would be more suited for all seasons due to the snowflake rating. Thus being softer and wearing faster.

I think you should consider the Cooper stt or if money is a consideration the mastercraft mt. If you want Toyos and want some off-roadability try the open country at

If my 3500 stayed on the property, more or less, I would definitely go with the M55.
Actually, I have been running those on a tug of sorts (a shortened M1008, military Chevy 1-ton) for about 15 years now, and they still look like new.

Toyo C/Ts went on the 3500 almost instantly, some two years ago, and it's used almost exclusively for towing.
I like how (relatively) quiet they are, how well they handle snow, and handle in general.

Taking corners at speed with a DRW is hard on the front tires, and I do it all the time, fully expecting the front's shoulders to show that. They haven't.
In 8,000-something miles I have switched them side to side at about 7,000 as there was very slight feathering beginning to appear.
Probably ran them a bit low for my driving style.

So, if I were you I'd go with the C/T.

Maybe if we start telling people that the brain is an app, they will start using it?

I can't complain about the M55s, I like them a lot.
But let's face it, the C/T is a recently engineered design, and more highway friendly, I think.

I don't know. Frankly, I had expected them to rot by now, but not wear much.

They get subjected to large torque loads, and are usually quite overloaded, but that's all from pulling heavy trailers on (mostly) dirt and usually in Low range. In other words, the miles aren't exactly racking up on them.
In the winter it has chains on all four, but not even that has left any noticeable marks in the tread.

While writing this I remembered that I did run four M55s on the road (and trails) on a 1-ton GM DRW with a heavy camper on it. Of course I can't remember how many miles ended up on those, but they didn't wear much in that rear application as I recall.

Maybe if we start telling people that the brain is an app, they will start using it?

I loved the M55s on my truck, went to a larger size tire so they werent an option. I put them through hell and they never gave me worries. Great life, even wearing (even though I only rotated side to side and never broke up rear pairs) and did well in all conditions from Montana (home) and work in W Texas.

They are also "snowflake" rated, and did great in the snow and ice.

I now run the Hankook ATM, which have been good... but wear faster as would be expected for the price.

Hankook is usually a very good tire. A premium tire sold at a BFG price, really.
