Toyo Tires DX3

Is anyone running Toyo tires on their DX3? Did a search but couldn't find a topic. If so, what size. Their Toyo chart doesn't show 275.80R.22.5

Thanks
Slim

the toyo 295/75R22.5 would have less than a 3% difference in circumference as compared to the 275/80R22.5. Your speedo at 60 will read around 60.2 mph.

look at the M122. 14 ply 5 ribbed rated 75mph. Can be used all position. Have used this tire on several of the work trucks

I've been eyeing up the Toyo 137, looks like better fuel mileage and tread life, but that costs about $60 more per tire (still less than $400 shipped). My Michelins are getting up there in age, so I will do at least the steer tires this winter.

The real question is does anyone change these themselves? Although they are too big to fit on my tire machine, they don't appear to be that hard to get on and off with a big set of irons.

It can be done but it's tough to break the initial bead. We would beat them with a 12lb sledge hammer. But with the aluminum wheels, probably be better to pay to have it done. The hammer & tire irons will probably beat them up pretty good

The regular old Big O near me just mounted up my new spare tire & wheel for $40 and that included a 10 oz bag of balancing beads.

The bead breaker on my tire machine would likely work and I was looking at this type of tool https://www.amazon.com/JAXPETY-VD-42...063210&sr=8-27 . Videos make it look simple and the tool would be paid for after just two tires. Hmmm.

EZ enough to mount with breaker bars & a helper.
