CYPRESS, Calif. — Toyo Tire U.S.A. Corp. has released another all-terrain product in its Open Country line, the Open Country A/T III, which comes with the industry's three-peak mountain snowflake certification for severe snow conditions.
The all-terrain tire delivers off-road traction, Toyo said, with "responsive and predictable on-road handling."
According to Toyo, the new tread compound and designs provide improved wet braking and handling; cut-and-chip resistance; excellent off-road grip; and delivers a quite, comfortable ride.
The tire's staggered shoulder lugs with biting edges enhance off-road traction, the tire maker said. Its 3-dimensional multi-wave sipes enhance wet and snow traction and reduce irregular wear, Toyo said, while its stone-ejecting blocks eject stones from grooves.
The tire will be available in 70 SKUs at launch, fitting 15- to 20-inch rim diameters. The tire maker expects to have 127 SKUs in its portfolio by early summer.
