These are 275/70R18.... Just one size up as I didn't want to worry about rubbing.

My truck is completely stock... No lift, no leveling kit. I haven't noticed a difference with the speedometer, but i only have about 150 miles on them (and i haven't paid much attention to it). My fuel economy dropped a little (1 mpg) but I haven't even gone through a full tank yet, and some of that will be due to the larger circumference (tire travels further per each full rotation).

Mastercraft has a new CXT out, that's close to a hybrid. I have the AXT's and have been pretty pleased, but can't tell you a thing about the CXT's.

[QUOTE=16toywheeler;8257954]I think a good in-between tire would be the cooper discoverer at/3.


Those are definitely not an "in between" tire. Coopers in between is the Discoverer ST MAXX.

I did some checking and there is no ban on Toyo or Nitto products in the State of Washington or Oregon. Maybe the retailer was mistaken?

On a side note, Nitto and Toyo make quality and safe tires; I wouldn't hesitate to run them.

Yea, i've never heard of such a thing. Go to a Les Schwab.



*I use to work for Toyo, but 10+ years ago. PNW was one of our biggest regions. That said, quality concerns and toyo is something i've never heard of.

That is bizarre that one place says there is. Les Schuab wants an arm and a leg for toyo tires, that's why I thought maybe that premium was due to that fact. Guess I was wrong. Either way, I'm taking a long look at Duratracs or Dick Cepek Fun Country. Those are kind of what I am narrowed down to, with some KO2's in the back of my mind too. The Falken seem like a nice tread pattern, but having never heard of the company it makes me nervous.

Not sure where you're located exactly, but our brick and mortar locations can special order Toyo tires and pricing is competitive. If you have a Discount Tire nearby you may want to reach out to see what they can do for you.

Les Schwab is the biggest toyo dealer out there. No reason they shouldn't match anything you find online.

I think they were about $100 more per tire there, including shipping if I bought online. Almost $2,000 for Toyo RT's mounted and balanced.

I have also heard that the Toyo RT aren't good in snow either. That points me towards the Duratracs, which are more expensive, but supposedly pretty decent in snow.

Did you ask them to price match? I don't know which is better in snow (RT's i don't have experience with but am putting a set on today actually)
