Toyo Open Country M/T

I have a 2003 FX4 level ll, with a body lift and I was just wandering if I could fit a 33x13.50 under my truck, without rubbing? If I cant I am just going to run a 12.50, also, what is everyones opinion on the M/T? Are they good in mud, good mileage?

I don't no if it will rub or not but the 12.50s look perfect with a BL. 13.50s would stick out to much but thats just me. I just thought I'd throw my 2 cents in.

Yeah, I was kinda thinking the same thing. My truck already has so many rock chips on it lol. I just thought it might look a little better sticking out further like that.

They may rub on full turn, but I don't think so otherwise.

If you have 12.5's now, a good way to test is to turn your wheel all the way, and then crawl under your truck and take a measurement between the inside of the tire, and the inside of the fender.

First off, the toyo mt's do a kick a$$ job on my truck. They are smooth, quite and wheel like crazy. I did some crazy climbing on mud snow and rock this last weekend with my stock truck with just 31's.

That being said why not go with the 33x12.50 or the 33x11.50?

Idk, I just like the wide stance. Anyway, I have found a brand new set of 33x13.50 for 180 dollars a piece. I think that is a very good deal, but I cant find any 12.50's for that price. So, I think Im going to buy them, and if I cant clear them, just sell them to my brother.

13.50's might be a little much. my 12.50's are more then enough. but as far as the toyo mt's go, they're badass.

my friend has them on his built WJ. and they grab like crazy on the rocks. do great in mud also. nice looking tire. pricy tire.

it flexs fine for me but its not like im doing articulation ramps. I have had some minor rubbing on the plastic flairs on hard articulation stuffing the tire but thats it and minimal no big deal. I had to remove the frt mudflap hangers and trim the frt valance but that was minimal too.

seriously these tires kick a$$ and wear awsome. I drive an average of 84-120 miles a day since i live 42 miles from work on the highway and am always running around the farms on gravel/dirt roads. They also dont hold and throw rocks hardly at all. They do great in the snow, sand, mud, rocks, and pavement. I will not go to another tire thats for sure.

Chad, I think Im definately gonna get a set now. Yeah, that truck looks bada$$. I thought I had found a deal on some, but at 180 bucks a tire, the shipping is 160 dollars, so its still a fair deal though. Any input if you think I can get em cheaper anywhere

i just went to les shwaub and got them since is close to my shop and my house plus their warranty and free rotation. They even do my car which has goodyear tires on it for free. I got the tires for just under 1000 mounted but the extra service is worth it. I thought about getting them elsewhere like online but then you got freight plus they usually screw you on mounting and balancing plus no warranty.
