Toyo debuts new all-season pickup tire

Toyo Tire U.S.A. Corp. has released a new all-season highway tire for pickup trucks and SUVs.

The Toyo Open Country H/T II highway, Toyo says, is a next-generation tire that builds on the Open Country H/T with added technology and design that deliver improved wet braking performance and handling, longer tread life, and more consistent traction performance throughout the life of the tire.

Contributing to the improvements is a new wear-resistant tread compound that extends tire life and improves durability. A combination of new patented tread design features, including adaptive circumferential grooves and expanding shoulder grooves, help maintain excellent wet performance throughout the wear life of the tire. All-season performance is further enhanced by four wide circumferential grooves and multi-wave sipes.

The sporty side features high-contrast lettering and an attractive, stylized shoulder and sidewall to complement today’s sporty and modern trucks and SUVs.
