    Yeah...going from a C rated to E rated tire will be noticeable for sure. I run D rated on mine, it's a nice middle ground.

    I rock the toyo at 2s, love those tires..i can't wait to try the 3s are they 10 ply tires? Thats why mine ride a bit stiffer than the stock bfgs at 8 ply

    I lowered the pressure down to about 33 now and it made an improvement. But it's still more stiff...plus I've got a light shimmy at speed so I need to rebalance them and then I'll reassess.

    Not sure on the ply count, I didn't look specifically on their site.

    Run balance beads!! Ever since I tried them I'm hooked..way more accurate than a balance machine thats "calibrated" and even then it has a high school kid operating it..lol..the beads do a perfect balance every time u drive, even as the tire wears, no need for a rebalance.. and no need for sticky weights that potentially fly off..our size tires take 8oz (35×12.50×17)

    Yeah, beads are interesting. I used them years ago but wasn't in love. I'm not opposed to trying them again...I take it you had good results?

    I run them in every tire i own..the only time I had trouble was not running the correct weight of beads..i use airsoft bb's now days..i mount and dismount my own tires tho..tire shops will push using a bag of beads and I don't think that is as accurate as loose beads being able to spread out

    I recently put the new A/T III’s on my sled. Definitely a stiffer ride but it’s also very comfortable. I think airing it down a little will help to lessen the stiffness. My setup is 35/12.5 R20 and I love the look. Loving the A/T III

    Termite352, after running the AT3's would you buy them again over the KO2's? I just ordered a set of Velgens and torn between KO2's or the Toyo AT3's in 35/12.5 R20
