Re: Toyo Open Country Backorder- Options??

I was trying to buy 315/75R16 Toyo M/T's a few months ago and they said they would be back ordered until August. Haven't checked again, but am definitely in need of a new set. I currently run 305/70R16 Toyo M/T's and they just look a bit small on the van. No rubbing problems at all with them, but the Deaver's did bump my ride height up a bit.

I don't think you should have any problem going to 305's if you have the SMB 4x4.

I currently have this setup (315/75/16) that came from SMB and mine is a SMB 4x4 build. No problems at all with clearance or rubbing with the 35" tires. You could probably even fit a 37" under there barely without a problem... in fact I think badger did as well as a few others on here. The only problem would be mounting the spare on the back as I am maxed with the 35" on there right now. I think with a 37" spare it wouldn't close with the aluminess tire carrier and box.

However with the V10 the 37" might be pushing it. Even with the 35" I have currently on the van, it is about 100 lbs per tire compared to about 70-75 lbs per tire for a 305/70/16 tire. This translates to harder braking and more engine lag. I have the 4:10 gear setup.

Can't speak to Quigley conversions.

Hope they fit!

Re: Toyo Open Country Backorder- Options??

I have a stock 2000 quigly I run 35 inch swampers the rear rubs under full hard articulation. When I say hard I mean front tire four foot in the air one rear stuffed against the bump stop the other rear limited by the shock travel and it brushes the edge of the fender. The front I had to trim the bumper about three inches and the fender about an inch and a half at the bottom six inches. Before that I ran a 33x12.5 tire and had to trim the bumper and nothing else and had no rubbing. I did have to play with rim backspacing for the the 33s to not rub. I run 16x10 rims with 5 inches of back spacing anymore back spacing than that and you will have a lot of rubbing problems any less and you have rubbing problems when turning lock to lock. You can adjust your stops out if you do not mind losing the turning radius. Can't afford to do that hear in CO the switch backs are to tight.
I am looking at Hankook dynapro mt tires I have sifted through a ton to tire ratings these get great wear and snow ratings on heavy trucks. I ran a used set of 33s and even with minimal tread they went great in the snow.
