Toyo Open Country vs. TRXus MTs vs. MTZ:

I am wanting to hear from people with these tires or ridden in a Jeep with them. I have been sold on TRXus MTs, but then I saw the MTZs and I hear good things about the Toyos also.

If it matters they will be 35s.

Im running Trxus MT's in the 33 flavor and my buddy runs them in the 35 flavor. We both love these tires. They are probably the most diverse tire out there. great for a daily driver, yet still can take offroad abuse. I have had mine on for about 3 years now and they still have 2/3 of the tread left!!! Great all around tire for the price and what you get. I just read in JP about the MTZ's and they said they are not to shabby either but I wouldnt know first hand. If you wanted another tire to look at maybe consider the Nitto Mud Grappler. They have gotten some good reviews as well.

Yeah I was happy to see that in my latest JP, but they never compare them to other tires.

I don't want t spen the $$ on the Nittos even though they sound awsome.

For those of you running Trxus year round on your rigs, what kind of treadwear mileage do you expect to get out of them?

I rotate mine at every oil change and I expect to see about 30,000 miles out of my set and that is including a wheelin trip every month just about. That is a rough estimate and I have no idea if that is high or low or not since I disconnected my speedo a while back.

I've "heard" you should expect 30-40k miles if rotated often.

Yeah now that I think about it, that sounds like a more accurate figure. Thanks for that correction!!!!

I had a set of toyo open country mt's 35x13.50's. loved them for on road and off. very quiet on the road and i got a lot of miles out of them(had um on for well over a year still 50% tread if not more). very good offroad as well, good traction wet and dry. only reason i sold um is im steppin up to full widths and 39 iroks.

Only thing i hated was seeing them on all the frat boys lifted chevy 1500

Oh and the added inch of width really makes them stand out (13.50 toyo, 12.50 trxus)

I got about 55K out of my first set of 33" trxus's with religious rotations and proper inflation. They still had tread left when I took them off for the 35's. Rotations andproper air pressure is what makes those tires last. One of the best all around tires I've ever seen, from snow, ice, rain, dry pavement, rocks, etc.......if you have a DD and run pretty much everything, you can't go wrong with the Trxus MT's.

I have the Trxus MTs in the 33" style, and they are the shit. I absolutely love them, they destroy ice, deep snow, dry pavement. I just got them about three months ago so I havent really been able to get them into some sidewall slicing rocks but I will soon and know right now that I will not be dissapointed. Buy the Trxus MTs you wont be either.

They wear great! in fact i am going to a 35 inch tire here soon and schwab is going to buy back my tires for just a hair under what i paid for them because the treadware in almost unmeasurable after about 8k miles..... i have no experience with the other tires you mentioned but for daily driving and wekend wheling i love the toyos....
