The Open Country R/T is Toyo’s On-/Off-Road Commercial Traction tire developed for the drivers of pickup trucks, Jeeps, crossovers and SUVs who want aggressive looks and excellent all-terrain traction combined with satisfying on-road comfort. The Open Country R/T is designed for off-road capability that matches an Off-Road Maximum Traction tire plus noise and ride comfort closer to that of an On-/Off-Road All-Terrain tire.
The durable, all-terrain compound of the Open Country R/T is molded into a high-void pattern. The aggressive, functional design focuses on traction in the toughest conditions while also providing a quiet and comfortable experience. The open shoulder blocks feature a scalloped design to enhance traction in loose terrain, while stone and mud ejectors aid self-cleaning and help prevent damage from stone drills. Deep, wide grooves allow easy water evacuation from the footprint for hydroplaning resistance, while sipes and block edges aid traction in slippery conditions, including in snow.
The three-ply, polyester casing of the Open Country R/T improves durability and handling, and the high turn-up further contributes to sidewall puncture resistance. The rugged sidewall compound helps prevent cuts, snags, and penetrations off road, and the upper sidewall design enhances traction in deep terrain or during aired-down operation. Two wide, high-strength steel belts are reinforced with two nylon cap plies to further increase handling and durability.
Toyo Open Country R/T tires feature dual sidewall designs, providing drivers the opportunity to choose their style, depending on which sidewall is mounted outward.
