CYPRESS, Calif. (Jan. 21, 2015) — Fresh off its introduction last September of the Open Country R/T light truck line, Toyo Tire U.S.A. Corp. has nearly doubled the number of sizes available.
Toyo has rolled out seven additional sizes — including 37X12.50R22 — to expand the line to 15 while offering a range of sizes in 16- to 22-inch rim diameters.
The Open Country R/T, built at Toyo's factory in White, Ga., is backed by a 45,000-mile treadwear warranty plus the company's “No Regrets” 45-Day/500-mile trial offer. The tire is designed for light trucks and outdoor adventure vehicles and, according to the tire maker, offers a blend of “excellent off-road traction, durable construction and aggressive styling, with less on-road noise and a longer-lasting tread.”
The new sizes are:
- LT265/75R16 (10-Ply, Load Range E)
- 37X12.50R17 (8-Ply, Load Range D)
- 37X13.50R17 (8-Ply, Load Range D)
- 35X13.50R20 (10-Ply, Load Range E)
- 37X13.50R20 (10-Ply, Load Range E)
- 35X12.50R22 (10-Ply, Load Range E)
- 37X12.50R22 (10-Ply, Load Range E)
The tire features wide shoulder grooves, mud-biting blocks and stone and mud ejectors, Toyo said, along with a durable sidewall compound that offers impact resistance and two distinct designs molded into it “so owners can customize their look.”
More information about the Open Country R/T, including a complete list of sizes, is available on the Toyo website. The company also has posted what it called an “action-packed” Open Country R/T video starring Off-Road Champion B.J. Baldwin on its YouTube page.
