So I really need tires. Was leaning torwards swapping out the Revos for some Michelin LTX A/T2 tires. Unfortunately, they are backorder for god knows how long. I have heard rumor of potentially 6 months.....

I called around and can get Toyo Open Country A/T tires in a E load for $850.00. I see the reviews are pretty good on them.

My concerns are:

1) Gas mileage decrease compared to the Revos

2) Harsh ride over the Revos, although I find them to be very bouncy now.

Opinions?

The average Joe doesnt need an E-rated tire. They will be VERY stiff and will weigh a lot more, bringing down fuel efficiency. I can understand an E-rated if you have a decked-out truck that weighs a lot, but for an empty truck that only occasionally see's a load, it's overkill. I thought I needed em once and regretted it the minute I drove away with them on.

I can't comment on the toyo's, never had em. I heard they are pretty good though. Good luck with the decision!

^ Couldnt say it better myself.

Unless you can only get an E rated tire in the size you want stick with a C or D rated if you can.

I would not get E rated tires again. Too firm for the Tundra. I have Michelin C rated tires and when I tow, I pump them up to 50 psi and it is plenty firm. Normal driving and I have them at 32 psi. Perfect ride.

I recently bought a set of Toyo A/T with stock 17" rims off Craigslist to use during dry months. I had Les Schwabb (Dean) M/T and could not be more pleased with the new ride. I may not put the M/T's back on.

E load is for 1-tons, not us 1stGen Tundra folk. I really like these Toyo's.

Thanks for the replies. After going to Town Fair and telling them I did not want the E-load, they found four P rated tires in two other stores. I'm going this route because I don't want to compromise ride quality or gas mileage. I'm really hoping they last longer than the 30K I got out of my Revos....

What do you use your truck for? I would not get P rated... they will not get you the life you want. Although you may get a 50k warranty. Get the C or D as was suggested. I have he Es but I haul 1000 lbs around every day. They are stiffer and you feel it but I wanted longevity and HD. My last set of Toyos were the C rated. They were fine. The Revos were way to soft for me.

The truck is mostly a weekend runner. I haul stuff to the recycle center or pick stuff at Home Depot. Nothing crazy.

Yeah, my Revos wore out in 30K. I've heard the Toyos a better. Unfortunately there are no C loads in stock anywhere right now so I'm kind of forced to go with P rated because I really need new tires. I just hope they last a bit longer than the Revos.

Hell, I may not have the truck in another 3 years.....who knows....it will be 10 years old by that point

Had 8-plys and they worked great, never got a flat, towed a lot.

Got new tires at 50k, 10-ply because the tread I wanted didn't come in 8-ply anymore.

Worst mistake I've made for my Tundra - Ride was much worse and I regretted it on the drive home from the tire shop. 50K is a lot of miles to deal with it!
