Toyo Open Country U/T
Open Country U/T has been developed to satisfy owners of a wide variety of contemporary luxury Pickups and SUVs requiring quiet and comfortable ride, stable handling capabilities, and low fuel consumption in urban type of road operations. With its purely functional tread design and special silica tread compound the Open Country U/T has accomplished its design goal of low pattern noise, improved fuel consumption, excellent handling and braking performance on both wet and dry road conditions.
Optimized Pattern Arrangement
Approriate block size distribution for improved ride comfort and lower pattern noise.
Five Variable Pitch Pattern
Pattern noise reduction.
Dense serration on the groove wall for pattern noise reduction.
Good cornering performance due to increased lateral block stiffness.
Helps to prevent irregular wear.
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.
