TOYO Tires

Due to a issue with a front tire had to replace both front tires. Wanted to go back with Hankook but nobody in my area had them. Michelins just way to expensive. Bought TOYOs , WOW what a difference in handling! Much better and I believe a softer ride. $100 a tire cheaper also. All 4 rear tires to be replaced next year........will be going with the TOYOs!

I just replace all my tires with Toyo's a few months ago.
I replaced the Michelin tires that were on my Georgetown.
Next month I will heading on a 6,000 mile trip to a few places, Goshen and back home. I will have to give an update on how they preformed.
The seem to be a bit stiffer in the sidewalls than the Michelin's.
What PSI do you use on your new front tires?

I used to have top of the line Toyo's on my PU. Couldn't get 30k miles out of them. Switched to Firestones and got 45k. Otherwise, I'm a big Shwaub fan!

I replaced my Michelin's with Toyos on my class C, and I agree the ride is much better. I only have about 2K on them so far, but like them.

Your PU and my motor home are two completely different animals. Personally I wouldn't put Firestone tires on my lawnmower. I like my TOYOs. I maybe will put 2000 miles a year on them......I like the ride!

I have 3,000 miles on the Toyos I put on last summer.

Love 'em! My wife even noticed the difference in the ride.

My 05 Silverado came with a new set of TOYO's and I took them off with less than 500 miles on them and put GY Wranglers LT E's on. TOYO's would squirm without any trailer or load in the bed. Sold all 4 of them for $120.00

I was wrong, my psi is 110. Checked them today. The Michelins were 90 psi. Just completed 1000 mile trip and still have nothing to say but good things about the TOYOs.

Just curious how come you are at 110 psi?
Is that what the installer put in it when you got them replaced?
I decided on 100 psi for now and will have to drive awhile and decide if I go up or down from there.
By the time I hit Goshen in August I will know. Should have 2,200 miles on them by that time.
Thanks
