For the second day in a row we recognize a first timer on our annual countdown.
Toyo Tires earned its first appearance on our list thanks to its M671A regional drive tire. Announced March, the new 19.5-in., size addition for the M671A commercial line broadened the company's support for urban and regional fleets. Toyo released its 225/70R19.5 G/14 and 245/70R19.5 H/16 options first, complementing its existing 22.5-in., options.
Toyo says the new 19.5-in., tire provides superior traction, exceptional fuel efficiency and excellent wear life. Improved tread compounds developed through the company’s proprietary Nano Balance Technology also contribute to these desirable features, the company says, as does Toyo Tires’ advanced e-balance design. Toyo says e-balance maintains the tread profile of the tire while reducing strain at the bead area and belt edge for greater stability and longevity under heavy loads.
“The new 19.5-in., sizes for the M671A regional drive tire provide a broader range in options for the ever-growing final-mile delivery segment,” says Dave Johnston, senior product manager, commercial truck tires, Toyo Tire U.S.A. “Greater stability is provided through a closed shoulder with an extra durable sidewall for city hazards, while delivering outstanding traction for inclement weather.”
