Looking at getting wheels and tires for the rig this spring and am looking at the Open Country M/Ts. I do about 80% highway driving for work and was wondering for guys that have them, how would they hold up for me being that I am pretty much always on the highway?? Otherwise I'm thinking about going with the ol trusty (to me at least) BFG All Terrain TAs.
I've had a set of 40's and my buddy had a set of 40's and 37s. All street driving and we both agree that they are a great tires. They aren't real loud (nothing that overpowers the sound of the truck) and no crazy vibrations like you would expect from a mud tire, especially at low speeds (such as an irok). Great life out of em and a clean looking tire. I mean you do see a lot of people running them.. That says something right there. I'd say go for the toyo's!
When I am towing my 5th wheel my tires wear very fast. The last coast to coast trip I had to rotate tires about halfway through the drive, the rears were wearing noticeably fast. I et about 25K when towing.

If you like the look of the toyo's, you may wanna check out the nitto trail grapplers too. Similar tread pattern with an aggressive looking side wall. Just ordered a brand new set today. So pumped, had to share!
