how many miles do you expect to get out of them?
these Michelin LTX are at about 8/32 tread last time measured with almost 55k miles on them
but they are nowhere near 117$ @ DT :(

i believe they started with 12/32 or was it 14/32 ?

8/32" of useable tread depth. A tire that starts with 10/32" of original tread depth has 12.5% wear for every 1/32" that is worn away, and a tire that starts with 12/32" " of original tread depth, has 10% wear for every 1/32" that is worn away, etc.

Think they have 11-12/32 new probably another 15-20 k when the wear out in going to put 285-65-17 or 275-60-17 on cuz I want wider on my 9" rims and those are similar heights to the 265-70-17.

I've run Michelins on both my Tundras in the past and been very happy. I run BFG AT KO's on my Jeep since came out. I'll be putting the BFG's when these absolutely terrible Toyo's wear out.

I've had KO2s for a while and really like them. They are quite heavy like someone else said, but never had a problem with them and they seem pretty grippy for most needs and situations.

I just picked up a new 2022 TRD sport, it came with Toyo tires my question is how much bigger and wider can I go without a lift or getting any rubbing. I am also like to go with a more aggressive look and still get a quiet ride and good handling.

I never had any real issuse in the slushy slop which will be here before we know it. I' m in New England we get our share of crap in the winter and they salt the Be'Jesus out of the roads too. It can get nasty. I dont like how the slush gets caught in my step tubes sometimes it is hard to get the drivers door open it gets so caked up.
 
I went a size up from stock 265/70/17 on my 2023 taco.
Yokahama Geolandar AT they look and drive great. 85% road and 15% dirt.
I'm super happy so far....

When I had a set of michelins on my tundra they were not to my liking either in that kind of slop. Going to a set of general at/2 grabbers was like being hookup on a clean dry road. Only issue with the grabbers...once they get over 1/2 worn, their like any other a/t tire.

I’m running Toyo AT3’s in a 265/75/16. The traction is great in rain/snow/mud and they’re wearing really nice. But they do have some road noise and I have a slight vibration @70 mph despite 2 road force balances and 15k miles. They ride a lot better than the factory Toyo open country’s.
