Comment:
Having my third set of Toyos Open Country put on today. I always debate between these and the supposedly longer life (and more expensive) Michelins and always come back to these. The fear of the M's is noise, ride comfort and wet driving. On my '99 Ford F-250 SD Crew Cab/Short Bed, I get between 50-59k on these (the truck has 172k mi). The ride is quiet until the treadlife gets to gone. The ride is good.

Comment:
I am a bit surprised a the negatives comments regarding this Toyo Open Country H/T because it is by far the best tires I have ever own.<br /><br />My tires are 225/65R17 on a 2006 Toyota Highlander Hybrid Limited. Note some differences: The speed rating and UTGQ Temp of this Toyo tire here at Consumer Report is listed as S and B. Mine is 102H and Temp A. Not sure why the difference!<br /><br />Anyway, there are the best tires I have ever owned. The tires came with the Highlander when I bought it used in January 2008. It had about 45,000 miles on it. Now is October 2014 and the car have 103,000 miles on it and I am finally foreced to replace the tires because winter is coming.<br /><br />I have pratically nothing but good thing to say about these tires - good grip in almost all conditions including snow and ice (and I know snow and ice as I live in Regina, Saskatchewan, Canada). Noise and Ride comfort is very good as well. To me, it is even better than the Goodyear Assurance TripleTred, but it is hard to compare the tires as the TripleTred are on a 2WD 99 Accord vs a AWD 06 Highlander. And the sidewall of the Toyo does not crack after all these years of use which I can not say for the Goodyears (after 5 years).<br /><br />The only con I found of the tires is on wet highway at speed above 65mph. It just wasn't gripping well and can be down right scary.

Comment:
Tires were OEM from the factory on a new Toyota Highlander. Terrible tread life. Completely worn out at 30,000 miles. We are older conservative drivers, Dealer rotated as required, tire pressures maintained. Pro-rated warranty is virtually non-existent. Do yourself a favor and buy something else.
