Toyo MT Tyres 255/85R16, London UK to Johannesburg RSA 18278.6kms later

For the 4X4 Tyre enthusiasts:

So we just waiting for the second land cruiser to arrive back in Joburg in the next week or two with the BFG 255/85R16’s tyres, but in the mean time here are some images of the tread on the Toyo’s MT Tyres 255/85R16. The average tread all around was 10mm’s / Toyo tyre and thats after approx. 18000 kilometres from London to Johannesburg.

The Tread:
10mm’s/tyre

The tread blocks:
They have taken a bit of a beating, but if you look at the roads we travelled across esp east of Lake Turkana which was gruesome and filled with sharp rocks, mud, deep sand; in my opinion they have done well esp. if you look at the overall price per tyre.

We can make a final comparison when the BFG’s arrive in the next two weeks!

    I think Toyo’s are great – fitted a set of 265 / 65 / 17 M+S on my Navara, with mainly tar driving and achieved 90,000 km
