Stinky tires??

Back in the summer I put on a new set of toyo tires on my mh.. When I got them they smelled just like a hog lot.. We got set up at our site and I couldn't hardly sit under the awning because used they smelled so bad.. Even after a good bath.. Well here it is on December and I crawled up inder to swap out my air drier.. I'm thinking what is that smell?? I start thinking that somehow my sewage tank was stopped up and possibly leaking.. Then I realized it was my tires.. They still smell like a hog lot.. Any of you ever had this issue?

I have heard that's the only downside to Toyos. I know the smell goes away, but I don't know how long it takes. I've heard other than that, they are good tires.

After five months and 3000 miles, my Toyos hardly smell anymore. They were really bad when new..... Just like a fresh barnyard.

funny you should bring this up. Last night I posted the same condition on my new set of Toyo. I do not want to be accused of cross posing but will say this.
The ride seems softer and less positive than the XRV
There is more drifting than the XRV, requiring more correction in steering.
The MH follows the road contours more than the XRV
The tires SMELL unlike the XRV which just smell like tires.
Not sure I care for the smell or the ride.

So far I am unimpressed with the tire but will reserve final judgement until I travel for a few days and pull a loaded trailer

Toyo's on our Wrangler never stunk but the MH Toyo's smell like s$&t!!!
Hope it goes away sooner or later.
Do like the ride and price compared to the Goodyear's that were on it.

My Toyos are two and a half years old and still smell if you get fairly close to them on a warm day. When new they really smelled.

I don't know about the smell but the handling issues usually clear up after a few miles. I have had that happen with several tire brands on big trucks. The set of tires I put on my coach last year before we headed south were terrible for the first couple hundred miles and then they straightened out. I also added a bit more air and they ride nice and are quiet.
It is the first I have heard about Toyo's stinking.

Just remember to replace them when straw starts showing between the treads!

I thought maybe you guys were pulling my leg so I ask about Toyo tires smelling bad on another forum and they had the same thing.

Weird. It's kinda like Xcelite nut driver sets that smell like vomit. I worked for a large company and we could order tools through our parts department. The nut driver set arrived and I promptly threw it in the trash because it smelled so bad. Second set was the same.

That was 25 years ago and the set STILL smells bad. I've washed it, soaked it, etc. No help.

No smell

Two on steer axle 2013 - no smell
Four on drive axle 2015 - no smell

Could it be size specific?
