Hello All. Just purchased a 2017 Limited last week. It came with Toyo 18" Open Country tires. They seem loud and i feel like it's a harsh ride. Has anyone else had this experience with these tires?
Open Country HT (or QT) are good tires, but the OE tires on the RAV4 are Open country A20. These are manufacturer original equipment tires. They do not have a good reputation. I also have these on my '17 SE and find the dry traction fair and wet traction poor.Toyo open Country are fantastic tires, they last forever and provide great traction on and off road. More likely you have HT`s As mentioned above, it might be the fact that rims are 18" and less "meat" makes them feel a bit bouncy and noisy. But regardless, they are very decent tires. I have Yokohama Geolanders on mine 2017 XLE, 17" rims. Since my commute is mostly on NJ Turnpike, i don`t think it matters what tires to install.. still going to be bouncy and noisy haha
I am in process of changing my 14 for a 17 hybrid le+.I have OpenCountry QT for 1 month now. I didn't notice too much noise.
