E rated tires are heavy thus have a negative effect on fuel economy due to the higher unsprung mass.
I generally run my Toyo OPMT at 28psi, to get more miles to the gallon on longer distance highway rides 32psi, offroad down to 12-15psi. They balance nicely and too early to tell for me regarding wear.

x2 for me with my Toyo's. Heavy? Yes. But very round, easy to balance, and drive great. :D

Fine on road, but offroad toyos don't bag out worth a crap.

Toyo's need to be aired down to 10-12 psi, without beadlocks, and about 8 with -- they'll do just fine and will hang, if not outperform, MTR/K's all day long. I run 28 psi on the highway, rotate through all 5 every 4,000 miles, and have 68,000 miles on my 35" Toyo's. They're starting to chuck when I wheel but they've got plenty of miles left. Just make sure you like them before you buy 'cause you'll have them for a while.

Here's a pic from a couple of months ago showing how much tread I still have left.

That's my problem. I have them in 33.5" (295/70/17) and wish that I would have just picked them up in 35's from the beginning! :bawling: I have almost 30k miles on them and they barely look half used!




Who wants to buy a slightly used set of 33.5" Toyo MT's??? :laughing:

I have the e-rated trxxus from interco. Sidewalls don't flex much but I am too lazy to air down anyway, plus with no lift and 33's I need all the clearance I can get. One side benefit of these tires is I got a flat and was still able to drive on the tire, I actually didn't even know it was flat, just thought it was a little low until I checked the pressure.
