The available sizes for the Open Country AT II Tire are available from Toyo . The sizing parameters for tires include diameter, height and width. A tire's diameter is the diameter of the wheel upon which the tires fits, and is commonly measured in inches. A tire's height is approximately the distance from the wheel's rim to the tire's tread surface when the tire isn't carrying any weight. The width is the distance from sidewall to sidewall at the tire's widest point. Some manufacturers such as Toyo express the height and width as a percentage by dividing the height by the weight and multiplying this quotient by 100. A tire's height and width are typically measured in millimeters.

The Open Country AT II Tire has a range of features that improve its performance on unpaved surfaces. These tires are composed of a wear-resistant tread compound that provides excellent durability. Its open-tread block design provides a quiet ride while achieving high traction on loose surfaces such as snow, mud and dirt. The zigzag sipes and polygonal blocks of the Open Country AT II Tire make it especially effective on snow. The deep grooves of the treads also improve traction on snow, and the tread blocks are specifically designed to eject stones from the grooves. The tie bars between the blocks stabilize the tread blocks, reduce regular wear and improve braking in dry conditions.
