Can an all-terrain tire roll as smoothly and quietly as a tire with highway treads? That was the big question I was looking to answer in this Toyo Open Country A/T II Review.
I am not particularly favorable of large trucks and sport-utility vehicles. I find them too big and too complicated for my city-based lifestyle. I have nothing against these behemoths. In fact, I appreciate the macho and rugged appeal of pickup trucks, and I admire the space and cargo carrying capabilities of large SUVs.
If I were to have a truck, I would most certainly choose all-terrain over highway-terrain tires. Chunkier tires will enhance the go-anywhere capabilities of your Silverado, RAM, or F-150 while making them look more aggressive on all sides.
My test vehicle for this Toyo Open Country A/T II review is a 2014 Ford F-150 STX 4-door SuperCab. The rig is equipped with a lift kit, aftermarket off-road suspension, and the 302-horsepower 3.7-liter EcoBoost V6. The truck is also fitted with 20-inch wheels and Toyo Open Country A/T tires. In short, the truck means business.
The owner of the badass F-150 is an off-road enthusiast who does a lot of highway driving on a daily basis. He particularly chose the Toyo Open Country A/T because of two main factors: cost and on-road capabilities. The looks alone will leave no doubts about the off-road capabilities of the tire, but is it also capable to silently and comfortably cruise on the highway? Not all tires designed for all-terrain driving can boast that claim, and that’s what I’m here to find out.
Mind you, the Toyo Open Country A/T tires fitted on my test vehicle were not exactly cheap, but they cost less than variants from Michelin or Bridgestone. A 20-inch Open Country A/T II from Toyo will set you back about $340 a piece. Of course, you will pay less if your truck or SUV is fitted with smaller diameter stock OEM wheels.
