CYPRESS, Calif. — Toyo Tire U.S.A. Corp. is adding a 26-inch version of its Open Country M/T maximum traction light truck tire, designed to fit rim widths covering 11 to 14 inches.
The new size, 40X15.50R26LT, is targeted at customers wanting to enhance the look of their pickups.
The Open Country M/T tread features hook-shaped tread blocks that are designed to help trucks work hard on and off road, Toyo said.
Toyo is backing the 26-inch fitment with its 45-day, 500-mile No Regrets trial offer.
Toyo launched the Open Country M/T in mid-2003 in size 38X15.50R18. There are now 88 SKUs fitting 15- to 26-inch rims, including 11 22-inch and two 24-inch sizes.
