CYPRESS, CA – Toyo Tire North America OE Sales (TNOE) announced today that the new Ram® 1500 Rebel® pickup will be exclusively outfitted with the brand’s best-selling product, the Toyo® Open Country® A/T II. Inside the truck’s cab, the tire’s unique tread design is embossed on both the front and rear passenger seats. A favorite among truck enthusiasts, the Open Country A/T II provides long tread life, exceptional all-season performance, an aggressive tread design, and a quiet ride.
A wear-resistant tread compound keeps the tire running longer, while the optimized tread design delivers traction on and off the road, including in rain, mud and snow. Low noise and a comfortable ride are additional features that set it apart from many all-terrain tires. The stylish tread design complements its excellent performance and is known for enhancing the look of trucks and SUVs.
“We are proud to have secured this exclusive, high-profile fitment that will grow awareness of the Toyo Tires brand and quality,” said Jim Hawk, president, Toyo Tire North America OE Sales. “The Open Country A/T II is also the perfect complement, enhancing the Ram Rebel’s all-terrain toughness while providing excellent on-road manners.”
The Ram Rebel is packed with features including an eight-speed automatic transmission, specially valved Bilstein shocks, a 1.0-inch taller ride height, and a choice of either a 3.6-liter Pentastar® V-6 or the legendary 395 horsepower 5.7-liter HEMI® V-8.
“From its lifted stance and 33-inch Toyo off-road tires, to industry-exclusive interior and exterior design elements, the Ram 1500 Rebel is like nothing else in the half-ton truck segment,” said Bob Hegbloom, President and CEO – Ram Truck Brand, FCA US. “The Rebel will be a hit with customers looking for a factory-built and –warrantied, off-road-ready truck.”
