Just surpassed 40,000 miles and wanted to share my positive experience with these tires.

Size is 285/65-18 (33x10.5x18, but they’re closer to 32”).

They’re rotated every 5k miles, and rebalanced if needed.

Quiet for an MT, they’ve gotten slightly louder as they’ve worn but not bad. They’re excellent in the mud, average in the rain (like all other MT tires), no idea about snow but likely terrible (again, just like every other MT).

I run them at 35 psi, which gives me 900 lbs of excess capacity per axle - more than enough for my needs while also providing good ride quality.

As you can see, wear between tires, and also across the tread, has been even.

Puncture resistance has been excellent.

Based on how they look now, I’ve probably got 5k - 10k more miles left on them.

I’ll be replacing them soon, mud performance is starting to suffer a bit. They still look good so they still have value on Craigslist.

They’re very good tires.
But like the Toyo MT, they’re an older design. I’m likely going to replace them with BFG K03 MTs, or the new Yoko MT, and going slightly taller (33”+) and 10mm narrower with a 275/70-18
