Toyo steer tire is SmartWay-approved

Posted on March 26, 2014

Toyo Tire U.S.A. Corp. announced its M144 regional steer tire has received SmartWayverification, confirming it meets U.S. Environmental Protection Agency standards for low-rolling resistance. 

The M144 is available in four sizes: an H-rated 295/80R22.5, a J-rated 305/70R22.5, and two L-rated sizes – 305/70R22.5 and 315/80R22.5.

Built using the company’s e-balance technology, the M144 provides highly-competitive, low-cost mileage performance.  An optimized casing profile provides better retreadability, helping to reduce overall operating costs, according to Toyo.

“The M144 is a part of our growing selection of SmartWay-verified tires,” says Lowell Slimp, senior product manager, commercial truck tires. 

“We are dedicated to expanding the number of these low rolling resistance products, with more announcements planned for later this year.”

In addition to the M144, Toyo Tires offers the following SmartWay-verified products:

* M177 steer tire for regional to long-haul;

* M137 steer tire for long-haul;

* M657 drive tire for regional to long-haul; and

* M157 trailer position free-rolling tire.
