If anyone here is running 33X12.5X18 Toyo Open Country MT's here please reply. Photo's would be nice too. It's absolutely time to replace the original Goodyear SRA's on my '06 CC 4X4.....what does SRA stand for anyway "Suck Real A**".... LOL. I was just wondering how they ride, noise level on the highway, etc.
I plan on keeping factory 18" wheels and I have the PRG leveling kit too....any help or opinions would be appreciated.
By the way, I have also considered BFG All Terrains and Kuhmo's so any other suggestions would help. Thanks.

I don't have 18s but have run the BFG AT KOs and currently the Toyo M/T. They both handle great at around 45 psi. My M/Ts are noisier, but I think it is because I had them sipped. Both are very tough tires, that can take a beating. BFGs are less $.

If you care about gas mileage, (some here don't), the BFG 33" AT are around 60 lbs. (285/65R18), and the 34" AT are 65 lbs. (305/65R18).
The Toyo M/T 33" are 75 lbs.
My BFG AT KOs were 58 lbs. and I lost 1 mpg over stock BFG Rugged Trails, (44 lbs.). My Toyo M/T's are 73 lbs. and I lost another 1 mpg, for 2 mpg less than stock.

The M/T's extra weight plus extra size on mine, 33.5" diameter makes my Titan seem sluggish compared to the KO, and I have the lower gears, (BT & OR pkg.).

I run the 33" Toyo MT on stock wheels and also have the leveling kit. So pretty much what you are looking to do.

I like the Toyos they are excellent offroad and in my opinion only sacrifice a little on road performance when compared to the stock goodyears.

Where they lack onroad is that they slip a little more when trying to accelerate hard (rather the slip light comes on). Also like stated you will see slight MPG decrease. In the city I haven't really noticed a difference if maybe .5 MPG less. I typically get between 13-14 MPG city driving wether it be with the Toyos or the factory goodyears but I'm not a light foot on the pedal. They are very heavy and pain to rotate because of the weight. Although I never weighed it the wheel and tire combined has got to be over 100lbs. I'm a pretty tough guy but at the fourth tire I start to struggle.
As far as the highway hum from MT's I haven't noticed that at all with the Toyo's. They also corner just as well as the factory tires did.

Now for the plus I have yet to get stuck with these tires where I would have with the goodyears. The aggressive tread pattern looks great and makes the truck look a whole lot better. The high tread has also saved me on flats as I have pulled two nails out of the tread already that have not gone through to where the air is. Also from what I have read is that they last a looong time people have reported 50,000 miles on them. Although I don't think mine will last that long they are holding together very well.

I recommend them. I orderd mine online and got a mail in rebate when I ordered all 4 I can't remember the store and I am not sure if Toyo still has the mail in rebate but you should be able to find this info through some searching.

Found my post about it a few months back.

OK I order the 33" got em for $1322 (actually 1222 cause theres a mail in rebate.) thats cause the freight shipping cost me over $200 it would have been like $70 cheaper if I had a business to sent them to.

If someone lived near these guys they could actually get these tires for about $1000 plus tax. Good price.

the bfgs i have on my k5 blazer and over the last 5 years and +/- 40k miles have seen less that half my tread go. the down side to the bfgs im told would be the way they handle on slick surfaces when worn passed half tread... ive yet to experience this. not much road noise and i use the blazer for my beach driving and have great success ( i dont even need to air down )

i have nitto terra grapplers on my wifes titan. i have no problems with the tire other than how quickly they seem to be wearing, at 10k miles on the tires i have lost 6/32nds of tread which is like 1/3 roughly i think. otherwise the ride is great ( snow, offroad, highway etc ) my wife likes the aggressive pattern without teh noise and i think this is teh best tire that meets those characteristics.

i have toyo m/ts on my titan. imo this is the best mud tire on teh market. i have had pro comp m/ts, cooper discoverer muds, bfg m/ts, super swampers and mickeys... toyo makes the quietest tire, good tread design ( much like the bfg ) which cleans out easy, wears evenly... SLOWLY. and does not ruin teh ride quality. as stated in other replies... you can tell your truck is turning over 100 lbs per corner and like any 10 ply truck tire you will lose some mpg. its common sense... more rubber is more weight is more to turn is more power needed is more fuel.


if your not up for spending huge money i have heard that the hankook m/t are pretty sweet. i am actually going to try them myself soon as i need new tires. i have seen a few reviews and would like to give them a shot. they look mean.

good luck

I would strongly suggest buying a tire that is stocked by Discount Tire Direct and using the Live.com rebate. It is the cheapest price you will find anywhere.

Have you looked into the Terra Grapplers at all? I've had them for all of a day, but the look sweet and fit a leveled titan perfectly in the 325-60-18 size.

I can't come on the wear, only that they look great, drive great, and that the price is out of this world with this vendor.

:cheers:
