cant wait to trash my rts quickly!....but i hear quickly and toyo dont go in the same sentence... i just wore off the raised tread surface

my 35/17s have been great for over 5k miles handle great in all conditions. wear is nice. with my experience and driving style, if i actually get to 12k miles with off road worthiness, i would be ecstatic.

ALTHOUGH, something did take a small dice size chunk out of the inside of an outside lug treadIMG_1064.JPG
Yeah, thats suuuper minor "damage", not worth losing any sleep over. You'll probably get rid of those tires from being bored of them and wanting a different size/look long before they're trashed. If I were closer I'd scoop them up and hang on to them! My 35's saw plenty of highway and trail time in mud, rocks, snow, sand etc. and were finally starting to show it. From my experience the RTs have been a great jack of all trades tire - they would likely slip in some scenarios where the MT may not, but I think they strike a good balance in highway/off road performance. I'm looking forward to seeing how the 37" flavor compares to the 35".

Did some trail riding today with the munchkin. Tires dig really well did 2 water crossings some icy frozen patches and some dirt trail climbing. No issues at all no slipping still want to do some further testing but since it’s muzzleloader season I couldn’t get down the trails without interfering with the hunters.

Opinions on Super Swamper IROK's? I had Suoer Swamper years ago on my '76 Cheby. My Toyo's are getting worn down. Look at maybe next spring for tires. Want to try something different. These are the ones I'm looking at.

I don’t have any experience with the irok radials, but I run the bias ply on my rock Jeep. They’re tough and grip like crazy. Loud as hell on pavement but decent at speed as far as grip and control. I’d be very curious to hear how they do in a radial

I had a set of these on my Cheby. Going down the highway. About 45 minutes, they would put you to sleep or drive you crazy from the noise.

I got to take my Cooper STT Pro's out yesterday for a little trip. They worked very well on gravel, rock, and a small amount of mud. I hit a few trails outside town, and I had a great day. The tires are very nice riding. They are a little stiffer than my Duratracs, but they are not noticeably noisier. I figured they would be noisy for such an aggressive tire. I hit some rocks on the sidewalls, and they did just fine.

I forgot to mention the size is 315/70/17. They look like they measure 34" on the stock rims. I added the Thuren short arms to fix my rubbing problem, and the truck is running great. My mileage has been about the same as it was on the stock tires. I also had it aligned to Thuren specs which seems to feel a little smoother on the road. Overall, I love these tires so far! I love the way they look, and the handling has been great. I am keeping my fingers crossed that they will do well in winter conditions including ice.

Time will tell. Here are some pics of the truck and tires in action.

The STT was my first 35" tire. I liked them. They're a good tire.
