Toyos on Bedrock

Bedrock on Toyo A/Ts  

Logbook: 3/30/2012

Mileage: 10,025

Postel’s Tire here in Tuscaloosa just pulled off the LT285/70R17 Cooper Discoverer S/Ts and put on a set of Toyo Open Country A/Ts in the GMC factory size — LT265/70R17.

Going back to the narrower, 31-inch OEM tire size makes my 2011 GMC Sierra Crew Cab 1500 4Ă—4 look a little puny.

(Wish GM would open up the front of the front wheel wells to accommodate 33s.)

But I hope fuel economy will get a positive hit with this tire swap.

Toyo Open Country A/Ts have been around for a while and seem to be well-liked by many pickup owners.

They are every bit as quiet as the original factory take-offs andeel like they grip even better.

Still using the Vision V-Tec Warlord wheels. They’ve been on for a year and still look like new.

Will do a full tire review in a couple months after Bedrock gets in a couple thousands miles. – Bruce Smith / Editor
