Toyo tires compound improvements

Toyo Tire USA Corp. announces a new compound upgrade for increased milage to three existing long haul and regional truck tires, which include the Toyo M171+, M671A+ and M677+.

Toyo says the improved compound change maximizes removal miles while maintaining low rolling resistance and traction. The new compound can result in improved mileage based on application, delivering more to the user’s bottom line. 

“Toyo Tires goal is to provide commercial products that deliver performance, durability, and a better cost-per-mile, which adds to the customer’s bottom line,” says David Demo, product manager, commercial truck tires, Toyo Tire USA Corp. “The improved longevity with these products demonstrates Toyo’s dedication to the customer.”

The Toyo M171+ super regional steer tire complements the Toyo M671A+ regional drive tire. These tires are specifically designed to provide long, even wear, exceptional fuel efficiency, and superior traction, within demanding 500-mile radius operations. Both tires feature Toyo’s Nano Balance Technology that contributes to the tire’s performance and efficiency, while also reducing strain at the bead area and belt edge to deliver a long life.  

The Toyo M677+ long haul drive tire is a four-groove drive tire for long to regional haul operations that meets SmartWay requirements. Built with a deep tread, this tire is designed to maximize removal miles, fuel efficiency, and deliver great traction. Excellent wear performance and exceptional retreadability make it preferred by fleets. 

The compound improvements will be applied to 14 total sizes, which include the 22.5-in., sizes for M171+ and M671A+, and both the 22.5-in., and 24.5-in., sizes for M677+. The M171+, M671A+, and M677+ truck tires will become available on April 1, the company adds.
