New regional front axle tire

M149_LeftToyo Tire USA introduces its new Toyo M149 super single for regional to urban use on commercial trucks.

This all-position super single tire is designed to deliver superior wear performance in tough operations ranging from urban front axles to long haul trailers, the company says. Optimized construction and tread design delivers high uniformity, even wear, and excellent wet traction. These benefits combined with a competitive acquisition point make the M149 a leading value alternative tire for tough operating conditions, Toyo says.

“We are pleased to add the M149 wide-based tire to our broad selection of Toyo commercial tire products,” says Lowell Slimp, senior product manager, commercial truck tires, Toyo Tire USA. “We remain committed to growing our product line and developing tires like this that give dealers and truck owner/operators what they need and want – longer tread life, excellent performance and durability that leads to retreadability.”

The company says other benefits of this new tire include:

Long Tread Life: The optimized profile of the M149 minimizes casing growth of the tread area for long wear life.  Six straight and stiff ribs provide smooth wear and also contribute to long life.

Excellent Performance and Safety: Five wide grooves with siping on the ribs provide outstanding wet traction.  In addition, exceptional uniformity and balance contribute to a smooth ride.

Superior Casing Durability: Wide steel belt construction braces the tread area of the M149 improving durability, while a high elongation top belt protects casing integrity.  A high stiffness bead filler also improves sidewall durability.
