12. The secret to the Toyo Open Country's excellent performance is the abundance and zigzag design of the sipes. We were impressed with the smooth, quiet road feel provided by these square-shouldered tread blocks. Once installed, we found two spots on each inner fenderwell that required minor trimming to allow friction-free stuffing. A thin layer of Teflon like the one American Racing applies to its Mojave wheels prevents mud, brake dust, and road grime from spoiling their lustrous appearance. We're pretty sure the stuff works because it makes the wheels feel slicker than snot. We picked the black versions because they provided some much-needed anti-bling for our Cruiser's over-chromed street habitat.
