I know Grubrunner did a great review of the toyo m/t's. But what is your insight so far with road noise the the 35's on a 17"? I am thinking of going the same route as you, but I don't want to hear a ton of whine coming from the tires.

Sorry for the late response, I was working way up in the mountains with no internet or cell coverage all week and Iím finally back home.

To answer your question there is definitely some road noiseÖ with that said the Toyo M/Tís are actually quieter then my winter tires (studded winterforce LTís) They are silent until you hit around 80Km Ö once you hit 100-120Km (60mph+) you know your on an M/T. However I only hear it when Iím listening for it and my wife and I can still talk away without yelling at each other.

BUT donít let the little bit of noise deter you. They have an excellent, confidence inspiring ride and I would highly recommend them to anyone. Itís hard to have that real aggressive look with out a little bit of noise and I think on the cool factor vs road noise scaleÖ the cool factor wins!

So donít be afraid to pull the trigger on the Toyoís or dropping to 17Ē rims. Iím happy I did with no regrets!

Hey Mango--great post. I think I have looked at the specs on your rims and tires a dozen times. Couple of questions for you that I have not seen addressed before:

- What is the difference in your power and fuel mileage? Is it discernable? Do the tires and rims weigh significantly more?

- Rubbing: I see you mentioned that you have no rubbing and no offset. Do think you can achieve that with a different wheel and tire--if they are the same size? or....is this a case where the tires might be a bit smaller?

Great looking rig! In the spring I am looking to do something like your set up, or simply get some larger tires and a level or Bilstiens. Thanks again!

Hey, sorry for the late response! Its hunting season!!!

Any way there is a noticeable difference in power and fuel millage... I don't track it as scientifically as others do... I just noticed that I go about 30-35Km shorter per tank after making the 5% correction. Also she doesn't accelerate as quickly because of the additional weight (which is quite a lot I haven't weighed them but id say at least 30lbs per wheel) which is pretty significant however the offload performance is totally worth it! I never get stuck or worry about sidewall cuts... and I'm out in the bush quite a bit. If your truck is going to be a highway queen I would recommend a different tire, an AT.

Regarding offset the stock offset is +19mm and I have 0mm offset. So in affect I pushed my rims out (toward the fender) 19mm from the stock location in order to compensate for the additional width and height of my tires.

If you are looking at a different set-up anything is possible, just start a thread or ask questions with the specs of the equipment your looking at running and other members will do there best to assist you. However as a general rule if you want to fit 35" tires you need a leveling kit and a 0 or -12 offset to avoid rubbing.

Hope this helps!

I would fully agree with the part in bold ^^^, there are one or 2 instances where this does not work, however for the most part (9/10 times) that will work on your 3rd or 4th gen rams

thanks

Looks great! Awesome read.

I also love my toyo m/t's. Much quieter then I thought they would be. Andrew really convinced me on these saying that they are one of the quietest m/t's on the market. I rode in a jeep with my buddy who has mickey thompson MTZ and man are they loud... much more so then the toyo's.

So when mango says its noticable, but not crazy, hes spot on. Windows up, 110km on the highway, can just notice it (that along with the magnaflow) But cabin noise is minimal, and can keep a convo with anyone else you may have in the truck.
