Toyo Tire U.S.A. Corp. has announced the new Toyo Celsius Cargo all-weather commercial grade tire designed for commercial vans and light trucks. The Celsius Cargo’s construction is built for year-round reliability in applications including local deliveries, services and transportation.
Toyo says the Celsius Cargo provides better snow and ice traction than a typical all-season tire and longer tread life than a winter tire. It carries the Three-Peak Mountain Snowflake symbol, signifying the tire is designed for use in severe snow conditions.
The all-weather tread design features an outside tread designed for all-season performance and an inside tread designed for winter traction. A circumferential rib and lower void ratio on the outside tread maximizes wet and dry performance. Zigzag shaped tread blocks with high sipe density, snow claws and slush grooves on the inside tread evacuate snow and ice to maximize cold weather traction. A durable sidewall provides extra protection against curb damage and its sturdy casing provides exceptional handling and stability during frequent stops and starts, the company says.
“With an emphasis on year-round convenience and winter weather safety, we are excited to add the Celsius Cargo to the already popular Celsius product line,” says Toyo’s Conrad Galamgam. “Our newest tire complements our proven Celsius and Celsius CUV tires by offering popular fitments for a variety of commercial vans and light trucks.”
The Celsius Cargo all-weather commercial tire is available in three popular fitments, including the Ford Transit 150/250/350 and Ford F-250/350 Super Duty. An additional ten sizes in 16- to 18-in. wheel diameters will be released in September.
