Re: Load range E tires

On my '99 I run 305/70/16E Toyo open country At's. Excellent all-around tire, plus they have a 50K treadlife warranty.

Re: Load range E tires

Heard a rumor (I think it was on this site) that BFG is now offering the AT in a LR E. I'll believe it when I buy my next set of tires. Cant wait for that time to come. Agonizing once again over the advantages between Michelline LTX and the BFG AT's.

Re: Load range E tires

BFG 285/75/16E's are out, saw them at Costco.

I have the Toyo 305E's. Personally, I would not use them on icy roads. Narrower is better. Normally I use a Mastercraft siped/studded 265E tire in the winter, they are awesome. Ten times better than my studded BFG Trac Edges were. I did not get them on this year and the 305's have been very skiddish comparatively.

Re: Load range E tires

So far I think the only one smart enough to finally get the hint that we want a 35 in. 10 ply for our trucks is Toyo. Brother finally got his off backorder for his 350 CC with 9.5 ft Flatbed and can haul a decent load of wood now. Maybe with the sucess of the Toyo M/T other tire Companies will follow suit.

Re: Load range E tires

I would have to agree on the TOYO Open Country AT's they are quiet, nice riding, and the tread siping goes all the way through the lugs so as your tire wears down you don't lose the siping as you do on other tire brands. I also pull a four place fully enclosed snowmobile trailer in the winter and a 5'er in the summer. I looked at a lot of tires and the TOYOs' won out for me. Hope this helps.

Re: Load range E tires

I too am running The Toyo AT's. I believe they're rated at 3550lbs at65psi. Don't have my truck at work today so I can't run out and look. I normally run them at 55psi front and 50psi rear. I'm getting good wear and not too bad a ride.

Re: Load range E tires

I will have to second with banshee, if you want the E range tire in the 305 the only one I found is the Nitto Terra Grapplers. I have em and love em. A lot of others have the higher weight rating, but the sidewall does not meet the E range ratings specs and therefore only fall in the D range. That is why I went with them and have no complaints in the snow and ice up in Truckee Donner Tahoe area. They are quiet and have had them for 34k and expect about another 5-7k before I have to replace. I even tow a 30' TT and love them. FWIW.

Re: Load range E tires

How do the Toyos' handle off-road? Anyone tried the Trailcutters?

I have the AT's, new tread was about equal to BFG AT's. Nothing radical offroad, just a few trails to my favorite fishing holes in AK and sandy muck of central FL. In all, I think I only needed 4 wheel drive once. The Toyo rubber is a little softer compound so pavement grip is better but wear is a little faster. Highway noise was suprisingly quiet for the size.
