Toyo Tires announced the addition of F-load range tires to the brand’s popular Open Country line of light truck products. The new, higher carrying capacity tires were developed to meet the needs of late model truck owners and dealers.
Available in the Open Country M/T, Open Country R/T, and Open Country A/T II tires, sizes include 35×12.50R20LT, 33X12.50R18LT and 37X12.50R22LT. (See complete list of F-load tires below along with a tire replacement check list).
F-load range tires allow for higher carrying capacity at a higher inflation pressure compared to tires of the same size with an E-load range. These new tires address the increase in payload and towing capacity of today’s trucks, giving owners the freedom to personalize the look and style of their vehicles with a tire that is properly load rated.
“At Toyo Tires we are committed to creating innovative products and solutions to address the needs and expectations of the off-road community and specialty dealers,” said Conrad Galamgam, senior director of Product Planning, Toyo Tire. “These new F-load range tires enable truck owners to get the tire performance and look they desire, while meeting or exceeding the load-carrying requirements of their trucks.”
Toyo Tires is offering the following Open Country tires and sizes in F-load range. Find a dealer and learn more at toyotires.com/opencountry.

Toyo Tires encourages dealers and owners to review this Tire Replacement Checklist:
- Confirm that the load-carrying capacity is greater than or equal to the load carrying capacity of the OE tire size at the pressure indicated on the vehicle Tire Information Placard.
- Carefully note any differences between recommendations for front and rear axle positions regarding the tire size and/ or inflation pressure.
- The speed rating must be equal to or greater than what is specified by the vehicle manufacturer if the speed capability of the vehicle is to be maintained.
- Tires should be mounted on approved wheel widths. If changing tire sizes, check to make sure the wheel has adequate load and inflation pressure capacity.
- Body and chassis clearance must be checked on the vehicle’s front and rear axles.
- Proper spacing between dual tires is necessary for optimum tire performance. If chains are used, particular care must be taken to assure adequate clearance between loaded tires to avoid damage from the chains. The allowable outside diameter difference between a tire and its dual mate is 1/4” (6.4 mm) for light truck tires.
