    I think that's the tire my roommy just put on his Taco. They are smaller, but still look like a really nice tire.

    I've got the Toyo ATs in the stock size and I love them. They are great on road and handled some pretty deep mud nicely this spring. Not only did they grip well on the mud, but they also let go of it and cleared the tread quickly too. Nice not to hear the tires throwing mud for 1/4 mile once you hit paved road like my old Les Schwab Wild Country junkers.

    I won't be buying the Toyo Open Countrys again. I drive a lot of dirt roads and have had 3 flats from rocks in less than 2 yrs. I am gonna give the new Toyo mud terrains a try next go around. I have heard nothin but good things about them, just a lil spaendy at $199.

    Yeah, my friend had the Toyo ATs on his 4Runner and had a couple flats on the Deschutes River access road. He's run BFG ATs for years with no flats, switches to the Toyos and gets two flats in two years. Back to the BFGs and no problems since.

    Still, I like my Toyo ATs so far. I'll let you know after this summer.
