Hey guys, my friend just bought new Toyo tires. I think its the T1-S kind. He's the guy with the cracked Lowenharts LD1 on the highway (I posted it on the old clublexus). I was just wondering what do you guys think about the Toyos? The yokohamas only came in 245/40/20, but he wanted it 245/35/20. Every other brand was like 255/35/20. The only one else in his size was Nitto's 555 but he didn't want to wait 2 weeks for delivery. He read some good reviews about them, thats why he chose them.

What do you guys think? Are those tires ok?

Thumbs up good one

the toyo t1-s is rated one of the best by some tire review magazine. i like the tread design and it has good tread wear, so should last a while.

Cool

dieselman63,

It has a high treadwear rating (last longer) and the tread pattern in sweet. Good choice. Waiting for my set for the rear 275/30 19 (in production).

See Ya
