Toyo MT's

How much air do you all have in your tires for daily driving. P285 75 16, I have 65 pounds. To much air? Somebody on here has to have this size tire and hopefully an answer. Thank you

depends on your driving. i am going to run 30-35 on my 33s. my dad runs 35 on his wrangler (not sure what size). i believe 50 is max PSI for most tires though so 65 is bordering on madness lol.

Thanks Guys

Thanks for the response. I just want to get the best wear out of the tires that I can, currently have about 15,000 miles on them and they seem to be wearing fine.I just wanted to get other peoples ideas on the air and compare them all together. I't kind of seems like it's up to each persons preference. Thanks agian and you all have a safe winter.

Yeah matters what ply rating those tires are. Heavier tire=more air. Speaking of the ply ratings, what ply rating are those toyo's that you have? I am considering a lift and bigger tires, and 285's is where I'd like to go after the lift.

On the Toyo web page it says they are 3 ply tires. They are 11.5 wide and rub a little on the sway bar when I turn the wheel to a full turn. I have no problem in my daily driving, but i may go the next width down when i replace this set. I am really happy with them and have had no problems.

How do they do in the rain? And what's your thoughts on the road noise? I understand its a mud terrain, but some mud terrains can be almost as quiet as A/T's.

I really have no problems with them in the rain, i just drive sensiably. The road noise has never been a problem, a little noise because they are MT's like you said but nothing major. I would reccomend these tires to anybody. They are pricing but i think they are worth the price. Snow is on the way so i will see how they do . A guy at work said they would be bad on ice because not much tread on the ground. I told him no tire is going to be real good on ice and he shut up .

Yeah I understand the part about driving sensible in rain; the tires I got on there are trash, but I think they are like that b/c of the tread pattern. Ok cool I was wondering about the whine level. Ha the price of looking good I reckon. But yeah there is no such thing as a tire that is good in ice except for studded ones or ones with chains.

On the tires, what ply rating are those? What does the P stand for? By the way the truck looks good man!

The Toyo web site says they are 3Ply on the side walls. I will look on the tires tomarrow and let you know for sure what it says on them. The P stands for Passenger tire. LT on the side stands for light truck tire. I seen other guys on her with this size of tire and went with there advice. i get up for work at 2 in the morning so I will get back with you tomarrow. Thanks for the comment on my truck.

^Alright man cool. Thanks for checking for me. But yeah from what I have seen anything above an 8-ply is a fail on a Ranger. Way to stiff of tire for a Ranger.

Wow do I feel stupid! I checked the sidewall today and I made a mistake. Sorry Jelly's Ford. MikeRider is correct on the tires with his information. Thanks MikeRider for correcting my mistake. They are also LT , not the P as I stated earlier.

Haha no problems man. On their website they do have a 285/70/16 that says C/6 next to it. I would take that meaning it is a 6-ply? Cause I don't have a lift of any kind I was just planning on doing a 1inch BL or TBar crank and putting those under there. 285/70 has a tad skinnier tread width on it compared to a 285/70.

Here's the website.....http://toyotires.com/tire/pattern/open-country-mt

Here's the website.....OPEN COUNTRY M/T | Toyo Tires
285/75 = 32.8x11.2
285/70 = 31.7x11.2
265/75 = 31.6.10.4
265/70 = 30.6x10.4

Here some comparison sizes for you, the 285 is just going to be wider then a 265/75 which is nice if your not in snow a lot I thought a bout the 285/70 but am real happy with my 285/75s. not mention the 6ply instead of the 10ply is nice! but like a said I haven't noticed much difference in the ride with the 10plys

Alright thanks for the input. I have still got some time to think about it lol. I've only had those Sport Kings for a little over a year. It just matters how long those Sport Kings I have on there right now last. On the driver side, the front tire on the inside is cupping. So I switched it to the back to even in out....aka doing some burn outs. However now after I have switched the tires it is still cupping and I have taken the truck for an alignment not more than 2 months ago, if that. I have not checked the balance of the wheels though. Maybe these Sport Kings, being a dang 4-ply wear down fast, but the ride is excellent however.

If you don't mind me asking Michael, how much were your Toyos? Am I looking at a pretty good chunk of money near $1000 or less like the price of the Duratracs?

Mine I got for $150 for all 4 but they are at around 40% tread or so, I got them to see if I liked the ride with the M/T. but I plan to replace them with new ones very soon as I am real happy with the tires. They go for around $1400 from a tire shop, but I have found them online new for as low as $960 shipped.

$1400 in what size? That sounds pretty high.
I had ordered Toyo open country M/T tires in a 35x12.50R18 locally and they were $1520 installed including sales tax and free repair here, and that size retails for about $70/tire more than the 285/70R16s. If you print some prices from online stores and bring them in they will generally discount a bit. They won't always match but they'll fight for the business.

I wouldn't bother with 16s, myself. Toyo now sells the open country M/T in a 33x10.50R15, load range C for about $40 less per tire than a 285/70R16.
