Toyo Tires has announced that a further 12 fitments of its popular and effective Open Country M/T tyre have gained Professional Off Road (POR) accreditation, allowing them to be listed and sold outside of current EU labelling requirements. The tyre is already hugely popular with many off-road professionals, including multiple Dakar and Baja winner, Robby Gordon. The tyre is also being used this year by the Isuzu UK Works Rally Team, on appropriate events.
Toyo Tires will be the technical partner to Isuzu UK for the pick-up truck manufacturer’s team in the Britpart MSA British Cross Country Championship (BCCC) 2014. The deal means the Japanese manufacturer’s motorsport team will supply the Isuzu UK rally team with tyres all season, as well as advising on set-up and usage.
