I stopped looking at these once I read time and time again that they are quite poor in the rain. Could be just because I’m in an XLT with no 4WDA, but, too many other good tires out there that can handle more than dry roads and dirt.

Was a prior K02 guy too.

I agree with above. I read that most sizes will take another 12-18 months to come out ? I will be replacing my Nitto RG end of year and the K03 was an option but no more. I think the Toyo RX trail is my next tire.

I just put these on, they look great even better than the Nitto's. They seem to ride smooth handle good, track good, at least as good but I think better then the ridge grapplers. I've always ran Toyo's in the past on a lot of rock roads, but they really never had a hybrid tire till now. I ran the regular RT, MT's and the M55 and they were hard and to much tire for a half ton. This tire seems to be just perfect. Time will tell, I'm kind of a tire snob, I want them to ride good do the job in all weather conditions and look good also. I have ran them in the heavy rain and all was good. Kind of hard to check all the boxes but so far I think Toyo might have hit it out of the park. https://www.tirebuyer.com/tires/toyo/open-country-r-t-trail/p/TV04981910556022

Thank you for the thoughts! I’ve heard nothing but good thing and looking forward to getting mine. Yes the Nittos seem harder then I’ve experienced. What size did you get mate ? Any pics ?

based on what i have read and can see, water traction has been improved for the KO3.

Absolutely, little hum is accepted on these tires that are little more aggressive then AT tire. I don’t get the hybrid descriptions , I can just see the one with the larger spaces in between lugs will be louder. The most quiet AT tire I’ve ever personally experienced was Cooper Discoverer XLT and loudest would have to be Goodyear Duratrac which sounds like a MT after 10k miles

I hate to turn this into a tire debate but it seems I am just as on board with the comments here as anyone else. I recall having the been in the market for the original BFG All Terrain before all this K series tire stuff...
Long time K02 buyer and had two sets of KM3s. Always been a BFG fan but my recommendation now comes in at the Falken AT4W. They are about 100 dollars cheaper per tire and the amount of technology and beef in these tires are sure to steal away many customers. They just have a much higher value prospect.

Thank you Discount Tire for supporting the page. Great Video.

I just had Discount Tire put on new Toyo Open Country AT3. 275/60/20 so far they are quiet and reviews claim best in rain for AT tires.
I had Nitto Recon Grapplers on but they rubbed so I took them off after couple thousand miles.
For sale if anyone interested 295/60/20
