I race cars as well (Spec 944 and Spec E30) and both classes use the Toyo RR race tire. I hold Toyo in high reguard for making a long lasting and sticky race tire.
On my F150 that I bought used it came with Toyos in an off road style tire and I have not been happy with those. They are out of round according to the Big Brand Tire shop in my town so I had them replace the worst two. After a few thousand miles the new ones are out of round. Still trying to work out the problem with that issue with Big Brand.
Sounds as though they make a good and reasonable priced MH tire. May give them a try in 6 years when mine finally age out.

Just put 6 new Toyo M154's on this week. Had read many good reports of this tire so out with the Michelin. The 6 year old Michelins were beginnig to check on the sidewalls with lotssss of tread left. We kept the Michelins and a young mechanic who does work for me will store and sell them and we will split the $ he gets for them. That also reduces the cost per tire a little. I also bought 4 new Uniroyals from same shop (Beasleys Tire in Houston) so they gave me $15 per tire discount on the Toyos ($305 per tire).

The 8 mile trip home was a smooth ride and I expect they will work well for me as for others. I feel safer now anyway and that is worth more than the $.

toyo is a good tire, only if its weight rating is adequate to your rig and not defective. my rig had a recall in 2006 due to toyo tires Country Coach Recall Campaign 06V262000 TIRES | AutoMD. the dealer replaced toyo with bf goodrich.

If you're in Les Schwab territory (essentially west of the east slope of the Rockies), it's no contest, IMO. We've bought Toyos from them for almost 40 years and have never had a problem.

On one car, which I was dumb enough to lease, the lease agreement said I had to keep the same brand of tire on each axle. It had Dunlops on all 4 wheels (OEM) and someone took an ice-pick to one tire. I went to our local Schwab store and they traded my Dunlop that wasn't damaged (even though it had 8000 miles on it) straight across for a new Toyo and put a matching one on the other side.

I replaced the tires on our Dutch Star with Toyo's this spring. We now have about 10000 miles on them and love them. Will do it again. We replaced Goodyear 670's, much better ride.

Unless they don't have and can't get the tires you need in a reasonable time frame like happened to me. I went with Superior Tire instead.
