Bedrock on Toyo A/Ts
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 4×4 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
