Good Tyre with Excellent Wear
I bought these tyres in 2016 to replace the Goodyear’s that were on it. Instantly felt better to drive, but that is comparing a new tyre to and old worn one. But I remember when the Goodyear’s were new how it didn’t feel as confident on the road as the Hankook’s they replaced. These Toyo’s are quiet, and wear well. No problems in the wet. So far have traveled over 47000 kms, and would guess there’s around 10000 kms or more left in them. Driving on them has mainly been highway mileage and lots of stop start commuting, with the odd venture onto s...ome fairly harsh dirt roads. No issues with side walls etc, only 1 puncture due to a nail, which isn’t the tyre's fault. Were a little more expensive than other brands, but would definitely be buying them again.
Value for money
The tyres performed very well,produced very good mileage approx 60k kilometres. Tyres gave a very comfortable ride and felt safe in all weather conditions. Vehicle travelled on winding roads daily and showed limited corner tyre wear and gripped very well on braking. Tyres were so impressive they were replaced with the same tyre on the same vehicle
Excellent braking and handling
I recently had the Toyo HT Open Country tyres fitted to my Landrover TD5 as replacements for the previous Hankook tyres fitted four years ago .
The Toyo's were almost two hundred dollars cheaper and after two months I have found them to be far better handling and braking tyres than the Hankooks .
There is more road noise , marginal perhaps but far less then the original Michelin tyres fitted from new .
Tread appears deep , side walls robust [ I am a gutter scrubber so this is important ] , compound appears to be hard wearing , it took a fe...
Cannot believe this
Away on holidays, we needed new tyres. We had the original tyres on our Mitsubishi Challenger and never had a problem. Had a great run out of them, but the road noise was unbearable. When we went to purchase new tyres, the salesman asked us if we were happy with the tyres, but sorry, he never had any( this was over at Charters Towers) and we would have to wait for 4 tyres to come in. We said yes, we were sort of happy with them, but could he show us some that we could purchase. We needed to be on the road again.
He showed us the Toyo H/T Open Country tyres, told us how great they were and we bought them. NO ROAD noise. Awesome. Very very pleased with the purchase of these beauties, and they look great on the car.
Grips well in the wet.
The tyres are lasting well. They are expensive! I bought 4 new at the same time, but got a screw in the tyre the very next day after purchasing them. I went back to Argy Tyres, who inspected and explained that there was a screw which had come from the inside of the tyre to the outside. They said that they had "never seen anything like it" before. I asked them if they thought that it could have happened when being fitted yesterday. They said I had no way to prove it. They charged me full price for a new Toyo Tyre. I felt ripped off. As for the t...yres themselves, they seem to handle well in the wet. They are not a serious off-road 4WD'ing tyre, but perform well around town, and on the freeway driving 110 kms. I would recommend them for a family car, where you want to maximise safety on the road.
Have 2 of these in 265 70 R16 s on an NP Pajero. I was replacing Khumo Road Venture s. The Khumos were fabulous but the dealer talked me into the Toyo s. Bad decision I had them on the front and even though I had the wheel alignment done twice they were very heavy to steer and always pulled hard in the direction of the road camber. I moved them to the back recently and had new tyres fitted to the front. Decided to write this review now as I nearly had a smash half an hour ago. I was doing only 25 to 30 kph in the wet on a small roundabout and t...he vehicle spun out. Only the new front tyres held on and saved us from crashing. The Toyo s have at least two years wear left in them but I'll be getting rid of them as I believe they are the worst tyres I have ever owned.
Mine are on an Outlander and have done 110,000ks and still have at least 5mm tread to the bars. They have never been swapped and the Outlander has never had an alignment from new. The original tyres only did 22,000ks (Geolanders) The Toyo's are a lot quieter and hang on better and still do. I expect around 150,000ks. I am not gentle on the tyres either. 20,000 was done towing a 1500kg caravan as well.
I have since sold the Outlander and bought a new diesel Outlander. The old one did over 150,000ks on the toyos. It never had an alignment or bal...
Toyo Open Country H/T
Purchased these to replace Cooper All-Terrain tyres on a Nissan Navara. Toyo Open Country H/T are beyond doubt a high mileage tyre ( just over 100,000) and the rears are down to the wear bars, front tyres have possibly 20 to 30 thousand kilometers wear left ( I do not rotate ) the Toyo H/T have been in some very inhospitable country; grid lines with quartz /iron stone a very real danger of staking/ cuts to sidewalls, high heat - 40 degree plus. They have come thru with some wounds - minor rubber cuts/chips, 1 puncture (tek screw) that's it.
Soft ride and soo quiet.This review has been edited-bad in the wet- i feek unsafe
Reading the reviews on here I bought a pair.
I bought the fronts to replace my Dunlop Grandtek pt2 which you can find the review on PR.
Ride is much softer I think than the Dunlops.
The quietness is even more impressive.Yeah really quiet!
Handling is not as precise as the Dunlops and there is a little tread squirm in hard cornering.
This may be because this tyre has an 2mm extra tread.
It is nothing to be concerned and in the wet I have found them very good.
The softer ride and less noise more than sways me about the tyre. ...
Toyo Open Country H/T
I have drove every back road I could find around Longreach just recently, drove about 8000km last year on gravel, have drove on lumps of ripped granite in state forests, pulled the porcupine spines from my tyres, never lowered the pressures when I should, abused them in every way possible, and hit potholes that left me at the chiropractor. I was told many times how I have ruined my tyres or they would delaminate. Not even a flat.
Wear indicators very high.
So far 88,257 km out of tyres RAV4 2008 manual reg rotations 5k
Excellent tyres I purchased to replace the Dunlops on the 2008 RAV4..They are up for renewal now after doing 88k on them.. They have been great set of tyre still have a few thousand km left on rear but fronts are on wear bars.
I would recommend these tyres to anyone.. great value considering how many kms travelled
length of wear
After research and reading all the good reviews, I decided to go for those tires. First corner and I felt that the car was less stable than on the old tires. The side wall is way too soft on them. And going through the roundabout straight ahead and you feel almost drifting, as the car dives into the sides. The tires aren’t actually loosing grip, but they just flex on the sides. Last set of Simex lasted me over 100k km, so I am not an aggressive rider. But the way the tires behave around corners is not acceptable. Ended up pumping them to 38psi,...when the cornering is almost acceptable, but then the ride is way to hard. I should be running my tyres at 29psi according to the car manual. Taking them back under Toyo’s money back guarantee. No problems there, I have to say. It’s a shame. Might be ok for lower profiles. Mine is 215/70/16. Quiet and good dry grip. Soft sidewall.
Toyota landcruiser 80 1996 I just clock up 90000 + with a 80 series which still have more in them The best 4x4 tyre I ever had on wet roads & when the family comes first with Toyo now I just have to find a good price for a new set lol but it dosent matter on the price ride safety comfort
For the four wheel drives that don't go off road, this is a strong tyre that has great mileage, is superb in the wet and is reasonablely valued for a tyre that is made in japan
Best H/T tyres in the world. Perfect wet cornering & wet braking, superb aquaplaning control, next to nothing road noise, super reinforced side walls (which keeps tyre bulge to a minimum), very good dry tyre, lighter steering feel and the tyres don't follow the grooves in the road. Under $250 each fitted and capable of over 80,000kms. This is the tyre Cooper Tire won't t...
To early to tell re wear, but very quiet and comfortable. I have always ended up buying Toyos in the past and have found them a superior product to others.
Very quiet, much improved ride compared to my old cooper ATs
May not be very good off road, but 90%+ for me is on road anyway.
Questions & Answers
I am not sure how people get so much mileage out of tyres - it seems all my cars are wearing out below 20000. The toyo A25 OEM tyre lasted the longest so far at 18710km. Sure I don't putt along but the wear is not to one side of the tyre to show I corner hard. I do not drive at excessive speed and stay on the bitumen although my road is winding, abrasive, bumpy and the odd cuts on the surface. Travel 25km per day at work and occasional fire trails. Yet four cars in a row got the tyres all worn out! These days I even make sure the pressure is not too low. I would take the blame as the common factor but surely the tyres were meant to handle speeds of 90km/hr - that's about the fastest I go in the local area. Another common feature is - all these tyres that got worn out were OEM. Anyone got any suggestion whether I would be better off with a more A/T tyre than those H/T type for the Navara Np300?
Have Dunlop grandtrek st20 on my 2014 mitsubishi outlander.The noise level is totally unacceptable. Any one with the same vehicle recommend a replacement type? Size is 215x70x16.vehicle is 90% road use. Regards Tom
I had the Toyo open country h/t. They were VERY quiet and gripped great. I have since sold the vehicle and still have contact with the new owner. The tyres have now done 145,000 ks and still have 5mm to the treadwear indicators.
My new vehicle is an Outlander as well and I have fitted toyo's as well
Wanting to replace the OEM Bridgestone Duelers on my Mitsubishi Challenger diesel automatic RWD which has currently travelled 75,000 kms, with a potential to do over 100,000 kms. Never been on unsealed roads but regularly tows a 2500kg van. Opions please on the Toyo Open Country HP tyres for my situation?
My feeling is the Toyo is a softer compound, and in your situation 'maybe' the Duelers would be better, in your case being RWD, towing. All the weight and wear on the rear tyres. Ask your dealer 2 simple questions. Which has the most ply in the wall? and which has the hardest compound rating?
