Thank you for your post about the New Toyo Open Country ATIII. This looks to be another solid tire for Outbacks with an aggressieve all-terrain tread pattern.
I need to amend my original assessment of these. I originally stated that they were only slightly louder than the stock Yokohamas. My wife and I were driving around yesterday and I asked her about the difference in sound and she said she didn't notice any at all. I have to agree with her. I'm the primary driver of the Outback so I could see if I grew used to any perceived change but to hear my wife say she didn't notice a difference makes me think I was looking for a difference when I first put them on. As well, the car definitely feels more planted than with the stock tires. Bottom line, these are awesome. Looking forward to ski season.
