WHITE, Ga. (July 8, 2014) — Ford Motor Co. has selected the Toyo Open Country A/T II — sourced from the Toyo Tire North America Manufacturing Inc. plant in White — as an OE fitment on the car maker's F-250 and F-350 heavy-duty pickups.
Ford will fit the Open Country A/T II in size LT 275/65R20 126S as standard equipment on the 2014 and 2015 King Ranch models, according to Toyo Tire & Rubber Co. Ltd.
Toyo Tire U.S.A. Corp. launched the Open County A/T II as a replacement tire in the North American market in August 2012 and sold more than 1 million units of the tire in less than a year, according to the company.
This is Toyo’s first OE contract with Ford and the first U.S.-produced tires to be delivered OE, Toyo said.
The King Ranch version comes with either a 6.2-liter gasoline V8 or a 6.7-liter V8 turbodiesel, according to Ford, and is available in standard, super or crew cab.
