Toyo has been producing specialty light-truck tires since the company was founded in 1946. In 2004, the first Open Country M/T tires rolled off the production line at its state-of-the-art factory in White, Georgia. The Open Country M/T is its “maximum traction” tire, and it performs well in soft, sloppy, slippery, muddy environments. The Open Country M/T’s tread pattern was designed to have excellent clean-out, which means as the tires spin the tread will clear the mud from between the lugs, thus providing biting traction—even in the nasty muddy off-road conditions. For those off-road enthusiasts who also want performance in sand, dirt, gravel, and rocks, Toyo offers its Open Country R/T, which is a hybrid between a mud tire and an all-terrain tire.
