How many plies does the sidewall have? I cannot see clearly from your pictures.I have a set of E rated Toyo OC AT3 in 285/65/18 and put 5000 miles on them. The only other all terrain tires I’ve experienced besides them are the BFG KO2 on a Ford Raptor and Falken Wildpeak AT3W on a Chevy Silverado Z71. The Toyos had a bit more road than the tires that came from the factory, especially on rough roads. Once they broke in, I don’t notice any road noise unless I am on gravel. Traction has been awesome in rain, sand, and snow. I found handling on road to be as good as any street tire. Just today I was making some pretty fast turns and the tires responded very well and felt stable. Prior to buying them I contacted Joe Bacal, who helped with their development. He said the benchmark during development was the KO2, and he feels they met or exceeded the performance of the KO2. To me the Toyo feel about the same as the KO2 in most surfaces, but in snow and ice, the Toyo feels more sure footed to me. The Falkens felt similar, but were a bit noisier. I don’t think you can go wrong with the Toyo or the Falken. The one thing I am not sure of is the sidewall toughness of the Toyo, as I have not taken them on rough terrain yet.
