Toyo AT IIís

Anybody have any thoughts on the tires for my TV. 2016 GMC 2500 Denali HD Duramax.
Tires I’m looking at are 275/65R20 Toyo Open Country AT II’s

I’ve been using Toyo Open Countrys for many years. I’ve had AT’s and HT’s and love their long tread wear.

Toyo tires are the jack of all trade tires, but master of none. In other words they are a great all around tire that last a long time. This really applies to their GSI-5 winter tires; not the best ice tire; not the best snow tire, but good enough, with long lasting tread life.

Very good value for your money; and yes, I do run Toyo tires.

Cheers

For AT tires, the Toyo AT II is a older model relative to its competitive set.

Many of the competing models have recently been updated in the last 3-4 years. What qualities are you looking for in an AT tire?

Mainly looking at longevity, low noise, and overall look. My Denali will rarely see mud if I have anything to do about it. I do go off road, as we have land but it consists of maintained dirt roads and open fields.

I ran Toyo AT's for 3 sets, on my Tundra and my son has had several sets on his Tundra. They needed rebalancing often and never gave either of us long life. Switched to Yokama's have been very happy. There are lots of good tires to choose from so I will not buy Toyo's again.

That is opposite of my experience. 50,000 miles on them on my Toyota Tacoma. They were on the truck when I traded it. 60,000 miles on the HTís on the Ford Edge. They are still going strong. Only 25,000 miles on the ATís on my Nissan. I put them on the truck after the BFG OEM tires wore out at 30,000 miles. I have never had to have mine rebalanced. You are correct in stating that there are many good tires available. Iíve just had the best experiences with Toyo and Continental tires that I use on my Sports Cars.

For those qualities, the Toyo AT II will do well. The "II" represents the update they made to the tire compound about 4 years ago. It's a harder compound, which slightly increased noise, but also gave it longer tread life.

The Nitto Terra Grappler (NTG) is a good tire as well, with slightly better street manners. Toyo owns Nitto. They share technology. Hence you'll notice it's the NTG II designation. That tire gained the same added qualities in it's second generation.

The reigning on-road AT tire is the Micheline LTX A/T2. Though it sways the balance towards on road NVH and roll-resistance, so it may not be the aggressive tire you seek.

You may want to check out the Hankook Dynapro. They're known to be tough and hard wearing, and is OEM fitted to the F150.

They're many great AT tires out there right now. Really hard to go wrong with any of the big name brands too, including the Toyo.

Toyo's

We installed the Toyo Open Country AT's E rated on our 2011 Ford and felt they were a very good tire. This was in 2011 so things might be different now, but the installer told me that they required less weight than any big tire he installs. The ride was a little rougher, but adjusted the psi when not pulling to soften it and they were a little noisier than I wanted, but they performed very good for us. My favorite tire has always been the Firestone Destination A/T, but our size was not made in the US, rather Mexico, a new facility and we didn't want to try that out. The Toyo's are made in the US
