Toyo Open Country WLT1, has been engineered to deliver optimal performance for variety of commercial vehicle applications in demanding winter road conditions.
The load carrying requirements for commercial vehicles are different than the average vehicle. Toyo tire has addressed these needs by developing a tire that can carry the loads and aggressively get through our tough winter conditions.
With a new design and profile the Open Country WLT1 delivers improved ice and snow traction along with longer wear life.
The Diamond T Split Rims were originally designed for combat trucks so that flat tires were easily changed in the field. But due to poor design they became very unstable over time and were quickly labeled “Widow Makers” or Suicide Rims” as a result of the outer rim exploding from the tire during inflation, often resulting in serious injury and even death.
We sent our Split Rings out to a tire service center located in the country since they have experience dealing with farm vehicles that still use these type of Split Ring Rims. Lets watch Mark as he and Keith with KO Tire talk about dangers of these types of rims and watch as they install the repaired tires for the Diamond T.
