Not long ago, Toyo Tires brought a new off-road tire to the market in the all-new Open Country R/T. We’ve had a chance to put the tire to the test ourselves and came away impressed (check out the review link below). As Toyo notes, the tire is designed for off-road performance blended with on-road comfort. The R/T is essentially made to be more in line with a mud-terrain in terms of off-road performance but more like an all-terrain in terms of being quieter and smoother on the highway than a mud tire.
