if you're deciding between the toyo's and xterrains........toyo's

toyo's regardless, they are a kickass tire that look awesome and will give you good performance on/offroad and good mileage out of em

the deciding factor came down to the price, it was between xterrains and toyos, and anythign over 250 per tire and i ahd to pay difference, and the toyos were 295 per tire and i didnt have the money so i went with the xterrains

Many factors, but yes rotation is one of them.

-air pressure checked
-alignment always in spec
-rotate every 3-4K
-balance kept in check
-front end components in great condition

That tire in particular is a directional tractor tread design. High void = lots of noise.

On the plus side, it's great offroad!

Sounds like you are one of the few that actually take care of their tires. Not saying that everyone doesn't but I sell tires and you wouldn't believe the things that we see every day. There are a ton of people that give up 10 to 30K just because they don't do proper maintenance.
