Aggressive new off-road style Open Country M/T (mud terrain) tire for light trucks and four-wheel-drive vehicles. The result of extensive product engineering and field development, the Open Country M/T is designed with a deep lug tread to meet challenging off-highway conditions.
Whether fording streams, slogging through deep mud, snow or sand, or just driving down the highway, the new Open Country M/T will provide the ultimate combination of aggressive looks and all around traction. Its cap ply construction enhances belt endurance, while its new technology design provides a more durable sidewall and the benefit of a more stable handling on vehicles with high ground clearance.
Aggressive, Attack Tread Design with Hook shaped blocks
Delivers excellent off-road traction and great on-road performance.
Open, Scalloped Shoulder Blocks
Bite into the ground and help to eject mud, snow, and rocks while maintaining off-road traction.
Provides additional forward traction in deep mud and snow.
Deep Siping In The Tread Blocks
Help maintain grip on wet surfaces.
High Turn-Up, 3-Ply Polyester Casing
Strengthens tire to provide excellent handling and durability while maintaining proper load capacity.
EU Tyre Label and Efficiency Classes
The European Union, under CE 1222/2009, has mandated that all tyres manufactured after the date of July 1 2012 for cars and commercial vehicles include standard EU Tyre Labels classifying them by three performance characteristics:fuel efficiency classified from A to G,wet grip classified from A to G, and noise emission in decibels.
Categories of tyres unaffected by this regulation include: retreaded tyres, professional off-road tyres, racing/sports car tyres, as well as certain types of tyres designed to improve traction such as studded tyres, T-type temporary spare tyres, tyres for cars built before 1990, tyres with a maximum allowed speed of 80km/h, tyres for rims with a diameter less or equal to 254 mm or greater or equal to 635 mm. This label is intended on one hand to promote economic and ecological efficiency in traffic, as well as increase road safety, and on the other hand to help consumers select appropriate tyres by ensuring a certain degree of product transparency.
Nevertheless, the label has been criticized for only showing a very limited number of characteristics. Professionals argue that tyres have many more features that are important and relevant to road safety, including but not limited to aquaplaning properties, driving stability, service life, product properties on wet and dry roads other than wet grip, properties on snow. Tyre manufacturers suggest that the test results from various institutions and industry magazines should remain a very important source of information for the end consumer, because they focus on and rate a wide variety of tyre properties and features.
