I had Toyo's on the mustang for a few years, they took turns having slow leaks, after about 6 re and re with them I gave up and put some cheap Chinese tires on it. Better in the snow than Toyo too.

Does everyone know the downside of tubeless on painted rims?

I put the 5th set at 296,748, love that CUMMINS.
Hemet is not a great place to visit. I'm building a has station there right now on Florida.

My Cummins is about to hit 200k and still feels like a new truck. My new Cummins has 50k now. I'm a fan.

They would run forever but if I was careful I could get 2 winters out of them and then switch to the older ones to wear down in the summer. Still have the GMC 2500 300,000 miles and going strong lots of miles for a gasser.

I have recommended these in lighter tires for others with SUVs and people seem to like them.
That's a great size and I used to love bfg all terrains until my last two sets got nothing for mileage out of them.

I have noticed that about tires also. I bought a SUV years ago and it had Uniroyal Laredo tires on it. every other one on the lot had BFGs so I told the dealer I would buy it but could he switch the tires with another one. He said he could. Went to pick it up and them damn Uniroyal tires were still on it and he told me because it was a dealer car and had 600 miles on it the boss said no switching. So I took it as is. I put 60,000 miles on those tires and saw hardly any wear. I got worried about the age of them and I never liked them even though the worked good and wore like iron. I took them off and put them on my half ton truck and ran them another 50,000 miles. So now I was sold on the things they grew on me. I bought the exact same tire for the truck again and they wore out in under 40,000.

I think when they come out with something new they put a better compound in it at first.

Hard rubber will wear like iron, soft rubber has good traction. Sometimes they change that or screw that up. It would be nice to have the tester at hand when you buy tires but they cost more than tires.

I love Michelins for the mileage you get, up to 90,000k. But you sacrifice some on ice and snow. Ever been here?: https://www.tirerack.com/content/tir.../homepage.html

A TON of useful information on tires.!
