Toyo Tire U.S.A. has announced the new Toyo M655 all-weather tire for local and regional service applications is coming to the U.S. This mixed service commercial tire is built for year-round use and is suitable for drive and steer applications, the company says.
Capable on and off the road, the wide tread of the M655 features aggressive blocks with multi-wave sipes to optimize traction. The combination of saddle notches and stone ejectors help to support the blocks to retain overall stiffness, while evacuating potentially harmful stones and debris. A special cut- and chip-resistant tread compound further adds to its toughness, while an aggressive sidewall protector is built-in to ensure durability on harsh roads, Toyo Tire says.
“The M655 really excels in mixed service applications, where traction and stability are important,” says Dave Johnston, senior product manager, commercial truck tires, Toyo Tire U.S.A. “The tire’s ability to clean out mud, snow and debris while maintaining grip on ice increases uptime for your fleet.”
First released in Canada, the M655 has proven it’s capable of tackling some of the harshest and most abrasive operating environments encountered by a commercial vehicle. It is also designed and manufactured using Toyo Tires’ proprietary e-balance casing technology resulting in greater stability and longevity under heavy loads, the company says.
Available in April, the Toyo M655 all-weather tire will come in two sizes, 225/70R19.5 14-ply and 245/70R19.5 16-ply.
