Was wondering if anyone has any good or bad to say about the
Toyo R/T's? I just got a set put on yesterday
And they seem to ride very smooth with very little noise.
Making a small road trip today so i will report back on any issues.:thumbsup:

Awesome to hear (see) this thread and anxious to see some pics posted up of them from every angle. You know it sucks looking at promo advertising pics and looking at them on a real persons truck makes it a lot better.

What do you think about road noise on them, what PSI you running, have you driven them on wet pavement at all - thoughts? Lots of questions I know but these are all the things I need to know before switching from AT 2 into the RT lineup, so if you can help me (and many more here i am sure) out with some in depth reviews answering some of these questions i noted - it would be fantastic bro!

Tango Yankee my man !! :)

Hey guys. Sorry ive been MIA from the thread
For a while, just got back in and it is super dark.
To answer a few questions. These are the toyo open country R/T
In a 285/70r17. They are on my completely stock(leveling kit) 2010 crew short bed
Just got these put on yesterday afternoon, had no idea about a
Rugged terrain line from Toyo and decided to try em out
The ride today was way up into the mountains
In south eastern New Mexico the trip was mostly light rain and
About mid 30s for temp, tires set up at 65 psi all around.
To put it short im impressed with these tires. They ride smooth
And virtually no road noise at all. Grip was never a problem
I will post up some pics tomorrow and please ask
Any questions. Super stoked to be part of the forums!!

The shop I use has replaced two customer's Toyo MT's with RT's and the drivers are very pleased. Good handling and low road noise reported. Both were 35's.
Update: some 37's just came in. They are D-rated with a much more flexible sidewall than their E-rated cousin.
No feedback from the customer yet.

I am so up in the air over these tires. I really like the M/Ts I had before, and the way I use my truck in Florida that is the tire I would go with hands down. I use my truck off road alot for hunting, and the M/Ts worked great in the sand and mud. Never had a traction problem.

However, I will be PCSing to Arizona, and using my truck off road there for hunting. But I dont think they get to much mud. I will mostly be driving on gravel/sand. I know the M/Ts will be just fine doing it, but I wonder if the R/Ts will have any advantage over the M/T in that enviroment.

Road noise isnt a concer, I want the most off road performance possible, and I think both of these tires will excell

I have had the RTs for about 2k miles now. really really like them. Had toyo AT and AT2s the last few sets. VERY happy about the RTs. They are super quiet, better in the rain, awesome offroad, and great warranty. the price difference over the AT2s are worth it.

Just bought a set for my truck. 35x12.50R17 waiting on the shocks for my level kit to put them on. They look sharp and quiet in my garage. Anyone else have any experience with these?

For real???

Hey Roost!

So you had BOTH Toyo AT (old model) and the AT II (newer model) and you can honestly say that these RTs are better on wet roads and do NOT make more road noise then either AT did? Cmon seriously?? I am floors to hear this since the tread pattern on the RT is more aggressive and prone to create more road noise and those lugs usually don't produce better grip on wet streets-they slide more. However, if you TRULY say this is 110% true I believe you and have just been won over man! THANK YOU!

Im gonna send you a PM since Id like to hear some more and also where you got them (from my buddy Sean?) and would REALLY love to see some pics of your truck with them on too! Can you post a few please? What size?

I knew someone would finally put up some good gouge on these new tires sooner or later!! :shock:

I have had nitto AT, toyo open country AT, and two sets of the open country AT2s. For whatever reason, these seem to just ride better. Maybe its the truck. I dont know. But these tires are quiet on the road. I dont hear the lugs gripping the street. They are smooth as butter. They definitely grip better in the rain, which was a concern I had. Im in florida so we do get quite a bit of rain, and a lot sunshine. Again, maybe its how the new tread pattern is cut... who knows. This is my real world experience. i dont test tires for a living or for a hobby. i could care less really. I just like helping people and i hate wasting time. Time will tell how well they wear. But with 2k miles on them im really really happy with them. 35x12.5x18 on XD Hoss.

I have also been wondering how these have been doing. I've been contemplating getting a set as I am getting tired of tire howl. I absolutely love the mt's but in a 37x13.50 it gets old listening to them howl!!

They also look great!!

Can you measure exactly how tall your tire is with them mounted on your truck. I would like to see if they are actually the same height listed on toyo's website.

I have them in 35 12.50 17. They do have a slight hum (coming from 285 BFG AT KOs) not bad at all though. I love them.

Plan to get these in 37x13.50x20 under a 3" lift next month. I have run 35" Toyo AT, AT2 and MT some will be sure to post a comparative review but seems like a great compromise between a mud tire and an all terrain!
