another big radial: Toyo 38x15.5-18!

Things are looking up in the big radial tire department! I happened to click the TOYO banner up top and it took me to their site where they have a tire called the Open Country M/T. The only size they have listed is 38x15.5-18 with an overall diameter of 37.7" and overall width of 15.9" [img]images/graemlins/cool.gif[/img] Its tread reminds me of the Goodyear MT/R, more of an allterrain tread but it's so big that the voids ought to be pretty large:

No clue on pricing, but it's nice to see all the big radials popping up... shouldnt be long now til we have a 44x18-15 radial mudder [img]images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img]

btw, rumor has it that Interco is working on a TSL-Bogger mix that dwarfs their 44 inchers [img]images/graemlins/shocked.gif[/img] [img]images/graemlins/burnout.gif[/img]

Thats good news for us!
The more compaines that come out with tires like this the better off we'll all be. This will hopefully inspire other compaines to follow suit, and before you know it, everyone will be selling a 40" radial, and then theyll start competing in prices [img]images/graemlins/cool.gif[/img]
