Toyo Tires doesn’t waver on the Open Country M/T’s purpose and performance profile. There’s no shortage of all-terrain tires that take a more balanced approach to on- and off-road performance (the Toyo Open Country A/T III is one example), but the Open Country M/T brings a focused off-road design approach.
From more practical off-road requirements to sending it through the desert like the champion off-road racers of Team Toyo, the Open Country M/T is up for whatever type of torture test you dream up.
A general rule of thumb: for tough off-road conditions, look for a tire that’s more imposing and extreme than the surrounding environment.
The Open Country M/T is more than just juiced-up window dressing. This tire is equipped with the full range of proven off-road tire design features, including:
“I’ve put 80,000 miles on the tires myself. They’ve held up great on the road and in the mud. I work on pipelines and I’m in the sand, mud and caliche roads in west Texas every day. I keep the tires rotated and balanced and they’ve held up beyond by my expectations.” – Open Country M/T user review on ToyoTires.com
Whether you’re towing a boat or the whole farm, the Open Country M/T is very likely up to the task.
Load range is the measure of a tire’s maximum load capacity, which translates to hauling and towing capability/limitation. For more information read: What’s a tire ply rating?
There’s no mistaking the Open Country M/T is good for something other than a purposeful off-roader, it includes design features for on-road performance, too.
Deep sipes in the tread blocks contribute to traction on wet roads. Its sturdy construction provides stability and reassuring handling, and the overall tread design was developed with on-road traction as a consideration. And while not as quiet and comfortable as a highway or all-terrain tire, it is known as one of the quietest off-road tires on the market.
You won’t find a tread life warranty as with most on-road tire categories, but treat the Open Country M/T right with proper rotation and reasonable use, and strong mileage can be achieved.
“I own a ¾ ton diesel pickup. I purchased the Toyo MT over two years ago and have since put 68,000 miles on this set of tires. This is the third set of Toyos I’ve purchased. Each set has worn exceptionally well.” – Open Country M/T user review on ToyoTires.com
No matter if you’re working with factory wheels or aftermarket, it’s likely the Open Country M/T is available in a size that’s a direct fit.
Speaking to the influence of off-road racing in tire development, Toyo Tires explains: “Track conditions, especially in closed course off-road racing, can vary from muddy and slick, to polished dry, more like asphalt. Trucks that can exceed 800-horsepower need optimized compounds to perform at their best. This form of ongoing tire development also benefits consumers, as continuous feedback in punishing environments leads to data which helps to further advance product technology.”
