Find me a 255/75 ww and I'll jump for joy. Will never happen.
And that does not bother you?

Now that you have had these tires for some time what do you think? Would you by them again? I'm considering the Toyo's or possibly the Vogue classic whites. Any thoughts between the two of them?As posted in another thread, I just purchased 5 Toyo's @$86.39ea as carryout... I'll mount them myself. No special discounts, just a 10% off sale at Firestone. The sidewalls say they are made in Japan... better than Korea IMO.
FWIW... the big selling points for me... I can order a replacement at any Firestone... might be a good thing on a trip. The Toyo's UTOG rating of 620 A B and reviews give me better confidence they will perform OK in wet weather... I will wind up driving in the rain eventually.
I'm not so much for or against Cooper's... but the combination of which local retailers offered them, some questionable ride quality experiences I've had in the past and the UTOG ratings steered my purchase away from them.
My second choice was going to be the Hankook XL tire... But the UTOG won me over to the Toyo.
I will write my reviews of these once I roadforce them and drive on them.
I'm sure these are good quality tires, (well..... not sure), but the TOYO on the sidewall spells Chinese to me which spells "not doable". Sidewall is a little to busy for my period tastes also. JMHO.
