Has anyone tried them? I think they look awesome but am wondering if they are too agressive for the street. How noisey/whiny are they?

Killer tire, no doubt about it. They're very heavy, but the upside is that you probably won't ever have a flat. The Toyo OC M/T is the tire that a lot of the top desert racing teams are going to. BIGDOG1 has a set and loves them. Very low road noise for a mud terrain with minimal balancing needed.

The local Dodge dealer takes some of their trucks over to Swabbs and has them put on differnet wheels and tires. They have the Toyo's on them and look pretty sharp. Just wondering about noise. I hope they aren't louder than my exhaust.

Thanks for the replies guys.

I just put some 37" Toyo M/T's on my '07 mega cab. Very quiet tire and it handles the road with ease. Can't beat the look of them either!

I had them on my GMC. I had the 38s on 20 inch wheels. They are segmented molded. This means that they make a piece at time. Some tires aresymmetrical molded, this is a two piece tire and formed in the middle. A segmented tire is rounder and smoother. They also keep their balance better. Alot of tire companies are starting to make tires this way and they way to tell is by looking at the tire itself. You can see the mold lines in the tread ever few inches. If you see one line through the middle of the tread, buy at your own comfort.

I saw an '07 quad cab with them in 35" size and they were awesome looking. He had it at least leveled, but not much else I don't thing as it was really close on the front fender well.

I know a few people that have the A/T model and they really like them, and not nearly as agressive.
