Toyo Launches Open Country EV Tire For Electric Off-Roaders

An all-terrain tire for all electric trucks

  • Designed for electric trucks and SUVs

  • Offers reduced drag, long life


With more and more electric trucks on the road, Toyo Tires is looking to meet the demand from buyers who want to take them off of the road. The Toyo Open Country A/T III EV is an EV-specific all-terrain tire meant to do exactly that.

Toyo says the new Open Country A/T III EV is meant to meet the unique requirements of electric pickups. That includes handling their instant and massive torque as well as the extra weight that comes with large battery packs.

It takes the standard Open Country III A/T and adds features like a sidewall AeroWing and chamfered shoulder blocks to reduce the tire’s aerodynamic drag. Toyo says the tread pattern is designed to reduce rolling resistance, and the tread compound is meant to extend the tire’s life even with heavier electric pickups.

Lastly, this is a 3 Peak Mountain Snowflake-badged tire. It can handle not just dirt and gravel, but snow and ice and cold winter temperatures.

Toyo is launching the new tire in 15 sizes ranging from 18 to 24 inches in diameter. That includes sizes for the Ford F-150 Lightning, the Rivian R1T and R1S, and the Hummer EV. More sizes are coming to fit the Tesla Cybertruck and the Chevrolet Silverado and GMC Sierra EVs.
