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 excellent wet performance, longer tire life and reduced irregular wear. Its two wide circumferential grooves are designed to shed water during wet conditions. 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:

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

The company also added a 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. Optimized construction and tread design deliver uniformity, even wear, and wet traction.

In addition to a 385/65R22.5 size, the M149 is now available in 425/65R22.5. Both sizes feature 20-ply load ratings.

“The M920 and M149 have delivered great performance and a lower cost per mile for our commercial customers,” says Mike Graber, senior product manager of commercial truck tires for Toyo Tire U.S.A. Corp. “These added sizes will expand the applications that will benefit from longer tread life and better retreadability.”
