My uncle has them, semi aggressive tread. He likes them, he only has them to go fishing at the outer banks though. Work great in sand

tires wear OK if you run them at the exact psi they call for, but there are much better tires for way less money

Toyo's tread life sucks. I hate to say it they wont last you very long. My boss had em on his 3500 and they lasted a total of 22k and he doesnt offroad or drive aggressively at all.

a 3500 also weighs close to double what a ranger weighs.

my dads 98 chev 1500 has em and they seem to be wearing fast .... he has maybe 10k on em and he doesnt off road, but he does tow a 5th wheel every now and then

i had some other toyos on my integra back in the day and i really didnt like em, handled crappy and didnt hook up at all, seemed like the crappy hercules that preceded em did better.

my dad has toyo ats on his 2500 suburban and they have close to 20k miles and they still have half tread left
i think they are a good tire but a little over priced

Personally im in love with my BFG A/T's, but my dads got the Toyo open countrys on his F-350 and loves them. The Nittos are a little more pricey but look awesome. Check out the Mickey Thompson line up.
