I have 265/65/17 on mine and that barely misses the stone shield on full-lock.

Tyre sizes should be looked at as a guide... Two tyres with the same values will have different dimensions of width and height

It sounds unintuitive but different manufactures measure the tread at different points

Pretty much doubt that.
I do over 700 km a week. live south, work north and school north on weekends.

The pic I took is over 32,000 km old.... still more than 75% life. with 740 tread-ware.

Besides the quiet road noise and easy road handling the Continentals are really excellent will use again.

also he sells a different model tire ... Latitude series.
Quick Service sells LTX A/T 2 series.

Trying to decide on which A/T tyre to buy, I'm looking at the Goodyear Wrangler, Toyo Open Country & Maxis Bravo. Anyone has any experiences with the tyres or price options?

Using the toyo open country a/t ii on a hilux.
So far: VERY quiet. Compared to my father's Invovic A/T (i hear him coming from up the street)
Terrible in mud
Loses traction easily under power.
Braking grip is good in both wet and dry.

Having had both Maxxis AT 771 and the Dunop AT3, I prefer the Maxxis.

The dunlops are less grippy in the wet, they tend to get noisy after 10-12k kms.
Never took them on anything proper offroad, but they both are ok in light mud.

I've been sticking to Firestone A/Ts for a while... They last well and are relatively quiet. No set of traction issues to note on my nav compared to whatever it came with, was slide and spin central

The Dunlops at2 that come with our bt50 is really quiet and good on wet roads. But useless in mud

Look at the Firestone Destinations as well. They're beefier than most of the other A/T tyres, quieter, and last a very long time.
