What are Hybrid Tires?
If you're new to the truck world, or just new to tires in general, then you may have never heard of a hybrid tire before. A hybrid tire often combines features of all-terrain and mud-terrain tires. Here are some of the features of a hybrid:
- Have the desired look of a mud tire
- Attractive tread design
- Aggressive, large tread blocks
- Performance of an all-terrain tire
- Reliable in winter conditions
- Can accomodate heavy loads
- Can get you through the mud and also make good highway truck tires
- Great value all-around
The tires we review here, are 35 inches tall and 12.5 inches wide for a 20-inch wheel. This is one of our most popular sizes, so we figured it would be a great place to start for a comparison of our most popular hybrid tires.
The Nitto Ridge Grappler is hands down our most recommended and popular hybrid tire. The wet performance of this tire is better than its "sister", the Toyo Open Country, while being more capable in the snow. The tread pattern is packed tightly in the center to reduce noise and deliver a quiet ride, while having large outer shoulder blocks to help with off-road performance.
Cool Feature: The Ridge Grappler has 2 different sidewalls. One side of the tire features a Baja-style side wall, which has aggressive big blocks, while the other side has stylish, angular cuts.
The Ridge Grappler in this size is offered in an E and F Load with a load index of 125, which is uncommon for a Hybrid tire. This makes the Ridge Grappler perfect for light trucks or large pickup truck applications alike!

The Atturo Trail Blade XT is one of the least aggressive-looking tires in this lineup. It appears more narrow due to the sidewall design having angled shoulder blocks. The tread pattern has smaller center blocks that help with wear and the lifespan of the Trail Blade XT, while the outside blocks are more aggressive and can help you get through the mud or snow.
On the sidewall, there is quite a bit of extra rubber on the side, which is great for protection against any harsh conditions. The Trail Blade XT in this size is offered in a Load Range E with a load index of 121. The Atturo Trail Blade XT is a great all-around tire. It's like an all-season tire almost, as it's reliable in all mild weather conditions on TOP of being able to perform off the beaten path.

The Fury Country Hunter RT is a newer tire and is taking the truck world by storm. The Country Hunter RT is the hybrid version of their very popular mud tire, the Country Hunter MT. The tread pattern has angular, aggressive shapes that are similar to those in its category. The spacing between the blocks is wide and even, which helps with the disbursement of water, snow, and mud. 3-ply construction, stone ejectors, and multi-directional staggered blocks are just three of the great features that help this tire deliver strength, traction, and a smooth, comfortable ride on the highway.
The Country Hunter in this size is offered in a Load Range F with a load index of 125. A set of Fury Country Hunter RT's are perfect for those not interested in compromising on-road or off-road traction. With these bad boys, you'll get the best of both worlds, and like the Ridge Grapplers, they're also great for either light trucks or large pickup truck applications alike.

The AMP Terrain Attack AT A is a tire we get a lot of questions about. Everyone wants to know if AMP is a solid brand and if the Terrain Attack AT A is a decent tire. The answer to both questions is yes.
The Terrain Attack has a very similar tread pattern to the Fury Country Hunter RT. Both have very large, even spacing between the blocks. There is a decent amount of siping, which helps in wet conditions, as well as snow. This tire will give you confidence by providing great traction in all road conditions. The sidewall is also aggressive, not only in looks, but it is also designed with double variation lug technology for improved traction. So if you're looking for an angry-looking tire that performs, these tires will be sure to make that happen.
The Terrain Attack in this tire size is offered in a Load Range E with a load index of 121. The AMP Terrain Attack AT A is a solid tire, just like it's popular mud-terrain counterpart, the AMP Mud Terrain Attack MT A.

The Toyo Open Country RT is the sister tire to the Nitto Ridge Grappler. In fact, they're even made in the same plant. This tire is similar to the legendary Open Country AT III, as it shares the ability to tackle tough terrain. However, it's optimized pattern arrangement reduces noise for improved driving comfort. The Open Country RT is constructed of high turn-up tough polyester construction for durability and maximizes opportunities for traction with an aggressive sidewall design, stone/mud ejectors, and open shoulder blocks.
Out of all the options, this one might be your top pick if you're looking for a tire that looks a little more subtle.
The Open Country RT in this size is offered in a Load Range E with a Load Index of 121. Where this tire really stands out is in its warranty. Toyo offers a 45,000-mile warranty for the Open Country RT. This tire is a little spendier than the others on the list, but you can't argue with that warranty!
