For the 2018 Tyre Review Winter Adventure
Pete took his 200 Series Toyota Landcruiser to the west coast of Tasmania equipped with the brand new Toyo Open Country R/T tyre
. How did they hold up? What did he think of them? Check it out!
Pete: Well, we've covered a pretty good variety of tracks, Jared. We've sort of done a lot of rocks, steep hills, sand, mud. We pretty well covered everything.
Jared: Awesome. Awesome.
Pete: Yeah, good variety of tracks.
Jared: How do you think these tyres went in the mud?
Pete: Well, we only got stuck once and that certainly wasn't the tire's fault. The ruts were a bit deep for them, but yeah good traction all around.
Jared: And in the rock?
Pete: Rocks really good. There's no cuts on the tyres or anything, which is always a good sign because we're giving the sidewalls a fair punishment.
And the sand today?
Pete: Working beautifully in the sand.
Pete: As you can see with the traction on there, [inaudible 00:01:50] driving nicely.
Pete: [inaudible 00:01:54].
Jared: Awesome. Good stuff.
These are a R/T all terrain, do you think that they're a good blend of tyre?
Pete: Absolutely. Yeah, I've been quite impressed and even their on road manners were good in the wet coming down to you.
Pete: Good all around.
Jared: Because these are significantly smaller tyres than you usually run.
Pete: I prefer to run a bit bigger tyre for off road but hey, pretty good for what we've went on.
Jared: They seem to certainly seem to impress over the weekend so thanks for coming along.
Pete: Pleasure. Cheers.
