Toyo Tires U.S.A. Corp. has released its first tire for side-by-side vehicles, the Open Country SxS.

Toyo says the new tire delivers performance and design features of its Open Country M/T-R in a smaller package specifically designed for side-by-side vehicles

A 32-inch diameter provides high ground clearance for tackling obstacles. Durable construction and advanced compounds developed through strenuous motorsports testing provide responsive off-road traction on rocky paths, muddy trails, and uneven surfaces.

Available in a 32x9.50R15 size, the Open Country SxS is a performance upgrade for sport and super sport side-by-sides such as the Polaris RZR, Can-Am Maverick, and Arctic Cat Wildcat.

Features include hook-shaped tread blocks for traction in a variety of conditions including sand, mud and rocks. A silhouette of the tread wraps onto the sidewall for extra grip, whether on extreme angles or on low traction surfaces.

In addition, a bruise and abrasion-resistant sidewall compound helps to protect the tire from damage. Toyo says the result is an extremely responsive and durable side-by-side tire that lets drivers power through the most rugged of terrain.

The Open Country SxS is already race-proven with a win at the 2019 National Off-Road Racing Association (NORRA) Mexican 1000 by CageWrx in the stock UTV class and an impressive performance by Team Toyo racer Bryce Menzies in Johnson Valley, Calif., earlier this year, according to Toyo.

Menzies, a winner of multiple desert and short-course races and championships, said, “After testing these tires on some of the most brutal rocks in the United States, and 1000-plus miles in Baja, I’m confident these tires can handle anything I throw at them.” Fans can expect to see other Team Toyo drivers enjoying the Open Country SxS on their personal vehicles including Andy McMillin, BJ Baldwin, Brandon Arthur, Ken Block, Kyle LeDuc, Robby Gordon, and Tavo Vildosóla.

“Our staff was extremely dedicated and tenacious in developing the new Open Country SxS,” says Adrian Puente, manager of motorsports, Toyo Tire U.S.A. Corp. “This has been a dream for a long time and to finally bring the right tire to market for this ever-growing group of enthusiasts – one that will exceed their expectations and give them the upgrade in performance they desire - is very rewarding.”

The Open Country SxS is for recreational use only, not for use on the highway or for use on light trucks or sport utility vehicles.
