The fastest going market in off-road is definitely in the side-by-side world. Toyo Tires just introduced the Open Country SxS tire that fits perfectly into the side-by-side market and in a very popular size.
If the Open Country SxS looks familiar that is because it was designed using the very popular Open Country M/T. The Open Country SxS is available in a 32×9.50R15 specifically designed for side-by-sides. The 32-inch diameter provides extra ground clearance for tackling obstacles on any terrain. Durable construction and advanced compounds developed through strenuous motorsports testing help keep traction on rocky paths, muddy trails, and uneven surfaces.
“Our staff was extremely dedicated and tenacious in developing the new Open Country SxS,” said 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.”
It doesn’t just take its look from the M/T it is already making a name for itself as a race-proven winner. The Open Country SxS won 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, CA earlier this year.
“Design and construction for the new Open Country SxS was inspired by the Open Country M/T-R which has left its mark on the toughest places on the planet,” Puente said. Those places include the Baja Peninsula and the many routes of the Dakar Rally. Major off-road championships include multiple SCORE-International Off-Road Racing championships and Best In The Desert series off-road championships, as well as an XRRA (Xtreme Rock Racing Association) championship. Major race wins for the Open Country M/T-R include the SCORE Baja 1000, SCORE Baja 500, and the Best In The Desert Mint 400.”
