Whether you have an existing set of tires or are looking to replace them, knowing how long certain tire brands last is incredibly important for safety and your wallet.
One tire brand, in particular, that is known for manufacturing high-quality and durable tires is Toyo out of Japan. But how exactly long do Toyo tires last? Here is what I discovered!
How Long Do Toyo Tires Last?
Toyo tires have been reported to last an average of 45,000 miles (72,000 Km) with normal highway and street use. On average, car owners commute 13,500 miles each year, so Toyo tires should last 3.3 years on average. Additionally, Toyo tires have been reported to last as long as 90,000 miles and as little as 15,000 miles.
To learn more about how long different brands of Toyo tires last, how to know when to replace them, and how to find the expiration date, keep on reading!
How Many Miles To Toyo Tires Last?
As briefly stated above, cars or trucks fitted with Toyo tires can receive an average of 45,000 miles.
However, when diving into this deeper, I discovered that customers typically get ranges of 15,000 miles to 60,000 miles.
In most cases though, the mileage of Toyo tires does seem to be in the mid-range of 45,000 miles.
When broken down into years, this lifespan is around 1.5 – 5 years, with 3.3 years being the average (based on the average of 13,500 miles driven each year).
As for the reason as to why the mileage varies so much for Toyo tires (or any tire for that matter) all comes down to individual use.
For example, highway driving tends to be less demanding on tires as there are no sharp turns, gutters to hit, and potholes.
Compared to city driving on narrow streets, tires can get a real thrashing with constant stop-start traffic, slamming on brakes, and potholes.
Do Toyo Tires Wear Out Fast?
In most cases, Toyo tires do not wear out fast unless the tires are prone to excessive daily use on rugged or off-road terrain which can quickly wear down the tread.
As stated above, this also can vary a lot depending on the type of driving, the weather conditions, road conditions, and also the car itself.
In fact, when comparing Toyo’s range of tires (including the MT and RT) to the average lifespan of 40,000 – 50,000 miles, Toyo stacks up pretty well!
How Often Should Toyo Tires Be Replaced?
Toyo tires should be replaced whenever you start to notice excessive wear or your mechanic says otherwise.
Some telltale signs of wear and tear for Toyo tires (or any tire brand) is when the tread bar is flush with the tire tread.
If this is the case, this means your tires are quickly losing their tread which provides the grip and traction the tires needs.

How Do You Find The Expiration Date On a Toyo Tire?
From my research, I was unable to find a way to correctly find the expiration date of a Toyo tire.
However, you can find the manufacturer date on Toyo tires, which can still give you a clear indication of whether or not they have expired.
To do this, you can view the lettering and numbers on the wall of the tire. From here, you will need to look out for the last 4 digits which will tell you the week and year in which the tires were manufactured.
For example, a code of “1309” will indicate the tires were made on the 13th week of the year 2009.
Now we know this information, we can then determine the potential expiry date of the tires.
In most cases, Toyo tires will start to lose their suppleness and start to dry out after 5 years, even if hardly driven on.
Additionally, it is recommended that tires that are close to 10 years of age or above should be changed immediately, regardless if they have been hardly used.
How Long Do Toyo MT Tires Last?
According to reports of previous customers, Toyo Open Country MT tires can last incredibly long (60,000 miles) when the optimal PSI is set and in ideal conditions.
Additionally, 29.6% found that they received 45,000 miles plus, while 24.1% got an average of 35,000 – 45,000 miles from the MT range of tires.
How Long Do Toyo RT Tires Last?
From my research, I found the average lifespan of Toyo Open Country RT tires lasts anywhere from 45,000 miles and above.
In fact, this range of Toyo tires comes with a 45,000-mile range limited warranty, so anything less than this may be eligible for a replacement.
How Long Do Toyo A36 Tires Last?
When compared to Toyo’s other range of tires, the A36 range does not seem to fare as well, especially for mid-sized sedans.
In some cases, customers using the Toyo A36 range of tires only received between 15,000 miles – 25,000 miles.
How Long Do Toyo Winter Tires Last?
From my own personal experience of driving with Toyo winter tires, I have been able to get 4 seasons so far!
However, it is noted that I do work from home and drive an average of 10,000 miles a year, so I am considered a “lite” user.
Nonetheless, I am very happy with the quality and durability of these tires.
How Long Do Toyo AT2 & AT3 Tires Last?
According to Toyo themselves, Toyo AT2 and AT3 tires are backed with a limited treadwear warranty of up to 65,000 miles!
While there have been few very reports of previous customers of these tires, they do seem to be durable tires for all-terrain use for light trucks.
One thing to keep in mind is that there are some limitations to the AII Toyo tire warranty which can be found here.
On average, Toyo tires last an average of 45,000 miles or 72,000 Km with normal highway and city driving.
Additionally, Toyo tires have been known to last a long as 90,000 miles, but this is incredibly rare is unlikely to happen.
However, when using Toyo tires with the optimal PSI and in fair conditions, customers can expect the tires to last 2 – 5 years.
