Toyo Tire U.S.A. has released two new additions to the Open Country family of tires.
The Open Country Q/T is a touring all-season tire especially designed for CUVs and SUVs and the Open Country C/T is an on-/off-road commercial-grade tire designed to fit half- to one-ton pickups.
Toyo Open Country Q/T
Toyo says the Open Country Q/T offers “a quiet, comfortable ride, impressive tread life, and attractive design”.
“Built for a wide range of vehicles, from CUVs to luxury SUVs, this premium all-season tire also provides confident handling and stability,” the company said in a statement.
“Silent Wall technology provides a quieter ride by reducing pipe resonance. Four wide circumferential tread grooves improve wet traction by evacuating water while open lateral slits in the tread also improve water drainage for better wet performance. Multi-wave sipes in the tread blocks minimize irregular wear for a smooth, quiet ride; they improve braking on wet and dry roads; and they improve light snow traction.”
The tire comes with a 65,000-mile treadwear warranty and is backed by the Toyo Tires 45 Days/500 Miles No Regrets Trial Offer.
Thirty-five sizes are available to fit popular CUVs and SUVs.
Toyo Open Country C/T
Toyo says the Open Country C/T boasts “all-terrain commercial grade durability, plus a Three-Peak Mountain Snowflake which qualifies it for severe snow conditions.”
Developed for balanced on- and off-road work, “its unique tread design and tough construction deliver long tread life and traction in gravel, mud, and snow.”
“Contrary to its aggressive appearance, the Open Country C/T also provides a quiet, comfortable highway ride.”
The Open Country C/T has a durable, 3-ply construction and all-weathers traction. Toy o says that “makes this tire ideal for year round service on work and ranch trucks yet its refined road manners and ride comfort also make it an excellent choice for recreational weekend use such as hauling or towing.”
“An innovative tread compound contains high levels of natural rubber and was specifically designed for rough roads and no roads. It helps resist cutting, chipping, and stone drilling while remaining flexible in lower temperatures.”
The tread design also adds to the durability of the Open Country C/T. Features include dual-angle shoulder blocks improve traction in snow, mud, and rutted roads. The tread is also pinned to accept TSMI #15 studs to aid in ice traction.
The Open Country C/T size line-up includes 16 popular OE replacement and flotation sizes ranging from 16- to 20-inches in wheel diameter and load ranges D and E.
