Toyo Tires launches Open Country AT Plus at Hungaroring

The new Toyo Open County AT Plus

Toyo has launched its new Open Country AT Plus tyre in an event at the Hungaroring. The versatile new all-terrain tyre was demonstrated on what Toyo calls one of the most demanding off-road courses in Europe, as well as completing a series of tarmac challenges. The tyre was fitted to a variety of 4×4 and off-road vehicles too, including the Volkswagen Touraeg and Audi Q3 SUVs, and the Toyota Land Cruiser, Volkswagen Amarok and Isuzu D-Max.

The Hungaroring’s off-road challenge put the Open Country AT Plus through deep water splashes, vertical slopes, and a slalom course, while tarmac sections included a high-speed handling area and skid-pan, in order to show the tyre’s wet weather handling capabilities, and an emergency stop test showed its improved braking characteristic. Professional off-road racers also demonstrated the tyre in a replica Dakar stage experience.

The tyre will be available from the UK dealer network and will cover sizes from 205/70R15 to 265/60R18.
