Review: Toyo Open Country A/T III Tires

All-terrain tires are the best of both worlds when it comes to a tire for a truck or SUV. They offer increased traction off-road over standard highway counterparts while minimizing on-road detriment that usually comes in the form of ride quality, performance, noise, and fuel efficiency. We’ve tested a substantial array of A/Ts over the years, and a stretch of testing the Toyo Open Country A/T III on our do-it-all Lexus GX460 build project tells us it very well might be a contender for the absolute best all-terrain tire available today.

2024 Hyundai Santa Fe Hybrid Quick Take: Checking the Box

The blocky look, for starters. The Santa Fe has never really stuck with a consistent look over the previous four generations, so why start now? The H-pattern headlights are a clever touch, while the oversized wheel arches break up all the flat surfaces. While it’s bigger and boxier than its predecessor, this new Santa Fe more cleanly cuts through the air with a 0.29 drag coefficient compared to 0.33 of old. The underlying platform is the same as before: the Hyundai Motor Group’s N3 platform also underpins the similarly-sized Kia Sorento. The growth spurt means the return of three-row seating, while maintaining a footprint a good half-foot shy of the Palisade.

Low Speed Pre-Ignition and Why You Want to Avoid It

Do you know about Low Speed Pre Ignition (LSPI) and what it can do to your vehicle? If not, you should be interested to know about it and why you want to avoid it. LSPI refers to an event within the engine where ignition takes place before the planned ignition sequence. When you have a premature explosion in the combustion chamber, it actually counteracts the correct piston movement. If you think about how a piston movement sequence goes, and all the moving parts in that sequence, it doesn’t take much of a stretch to see just how quickly that can lead to some severe mechanical issues that have pretty massive repair bills attached.
