New tires

Just found this forum. Just got new Toyo Open Country A/Ts (P275/60R20) and had them siped. Got into some mud and snow and lots of rain today. They did great. Sooooo much better that the stock Goodyears.

Thanks for the greetings. I changed my mind and returned the 275/60/20s and got Toyo Open Country A/T LT305/55 R20 Tires. I do occasional towing and needed the stronger side walls. These tires are the same diameter as standard OEM Goodyears and give accurate odometer and speedometer readings. I checked with GPS speed readings. They are a little stiffer, but put 11"s of rubber on the road and require no lift or trimming on my truck. They mounted up just fine on the stock 20s.
Great wet traction and they look better to me.

Lets see some pics. I want to see how wide 305s look from behind. I bet they look pretty mean. As far as the siping goes how much did that run and what kind of differences do you notice? Thanks.

The siping costs $11.50 per tire and lets the tire run cooler plus increases wet and ice traction.

Good looking truck Webdog. Welcome to the club. I don't remember any rain on that side of the mountains though
I moved from that area a couple of years ago. Lived in Irrigon, OR.

Rained for the last few days. Should be about over for the year next week. I moved here from Spokane about one year ago and picked up the Hemi to help with the move. Really, it's just sooooo fun to drive. Got caught in a storm in Hermiston yesterday.
