Granted these aren't the IIs nor are they the Xtremes, but you can see that the larger at's look a little more aggressive. These are 325/60/18s.

Love the picture. Really sharp looking truck. Even have the winter cover on! I went ahead and ordered the M/T since the A/T is on back order but I've heard great things about the A/T so hopefully I don't regret my decision to not wait.

Snows about to fly up here so I really can't wait too much longer, my stock tires sucked anyways but now they are pretty much toast from doing burnouts

I own both and love both. The MT for my summer setup, because they look awesome. The AT II for winter as they are narrow and will cut through the snow better, you cant go wrong with either, trust me.

And it SUCKS out loud that the 35 x 12.50 x 20 is on back order. They are talking March and I HAD 4 sets sold.

Yeah March sucks! I definitely feel better about the M/Ts now. Will cost about $1,600 total. Just need to install the lift and life will be good!

If you read the second paragraph, Toyo states "Xtreme sizes, such as 35x12.5R18, feature a deeper tread depth and a more aggressive tread and shoulder design."

That statement is what my original post was about. I was wondering if anyone had a picture of an "Xtreme" size A/T II vs. the "normal" size. It was the MORE aggressive tread and shoulder design that interested me...

Sorry.

All of them that are a "standard size" not metric designation are the "Extreme" I guess you would call them. This stems from the section width allowing for a blockier tread design.
