Toyo Tire recently introduced two new tire sizes for regional and long-haul trucks.
The Toyo M920 drive tire and the Toyo® M149 Super Single are part of the M-Line of commercial tire products from Toyo Tires.
The M920 drive traction tire is ideal for trucks that require all-season capabilities to deliver loads in any weather condition in regional or long-haul applications. It has wide, staggered tread blocks for improved traction and performance while additional features assist in wet performance, longer tire life and reduced irregular wear. Its two wide circumferential grooves are designed to shed water during wet conditions.
New sizes added to the M920 lineup include a 315/80R22.5 with a Load Index of L, also an 11R24.5 and a 285/75R24.5. The total M920 size range now includes:
Size Load/Speed Ply Rating Load Range
225/70R19.5 128/126N 14 G
245/70R19.5 133/131N 14 G
11R22.5 144/142L 14 G
11R22.5 146/143L 16 H
295/75R22.5 144/141L 14 G
315/80R22.5 157/154L 20 L
11R24.5 149/146L 16 H
285/75R24.5 144/141L 14 G
The company has also added a new size to its Toyo M149, an all-position super single tire designed to deliver superior wear performance in tough operations, ranging from urban front axles to long-haul trailers. Toyo reports that optimized construction and tread design deliver high uniformity, even wear and excellent wet traction.
In addition to a 385/65R22.5 size, the M149 is now also available in a larger 425/65R22.5 size tire. Both sizes feature rugged 20-ply load ratings.
“The M920 and M149 have delivered great performance and a lower cost per mile for our commercial customers,” said Mike Graber, senior product manager, commercial truck tires Toyo Tire U.S.A. “These added sizes will expand the applications that will benefit from longer tread life and better retreadability.”
