Re: Need some new tire advice & help

Not to stir the pot, but aren't those 57 lbs per tire? That's quite a bit heavier than the Fortera that weighs 33 lbs. With the stock rim weighing 31 lbs, you're looking at a 88 lb combo instead of the 64 lb stock combo.

Not trying to imply anything, or to say that you made a bad choice. I have no experience with the Toyo tires, and they may be freaking awesome. I'm just saying that it does seem a bit off track from what you initially said you were looking for. Nothing wrong with that, just how it appeared.

Anyway, they are a good looking tire. Hope they're what you're looking for. I've bought tires before that I ended up not liking as much as I had hoped. I've also bought tires before that were better than expected. Tires are a subjective thing so one person may love it while another hates it. Hope these are a love it item for you.

You'll be lucky if you get this kind of helpful advice again with that attitude

Future advice, know what you're talking about before handing out advice or opinions. AT2's 275/55 R20 = 46 lbs.

Re: Need some new tire advice & help

Seriously dude, what's with the attitude? I've been nothing but helpful, and tired to give you loads of information, and I've researched tires to try to help you. Take a look at my post. You see that thing at the end of my sentence that mentions the weight. It's called a question mark. I was asking you if they were 57 lbs. I couldn't find 275/55/20 on tirerack, or other sites (I found them now on Amazon though). The nearest size I found before I asked about weight were 57 lbs, but hey excuse me for trying to explaining why it appeared you were buying something other than what you were initially looking at. I wasn't giving advice or an opinion.

But hey, forget it, it's not that important to me, I was just trying to be helpful. My fault, it won't happen again. Heep is right. That's last time I waste my time with that endeavor.

Oh whoops so sorry. That wasn't supposed to be directed at you. My bad.
Updating from my phone was a bad idea......you've been helpful.

Similar screen names got me mixed up.

It's okay. No harm, no foul.
