Toyo Brings M655 All-Weather Commercial Tire to U.S. Market

Toyo Tire U.S.A. Corp. is bringing its new M655 all-weather tire for local and regional service applications to the U.S. 

The company says the mixed service commercial tire is built for year-round use in the most demanding conditions.  Suitable for both drive and steer applications, it includes the 3-Peak Mountain Snowflake symbol on its sidewall indicating its ability to perform even in snow and ice.

Highly capable both on and off the road, the wide tread of the M655 features aggressive blocks with multi-wave sipes to optimize traction. 

The combination of saddle notches and stone ejectors help to support the blocks to retain overall stiffness, while evacuating potentially harmful stones and debris. 

The M655A has a special cut- and chip-resistant tread compound while an aggressive sidewall protector is built-in to ensure durability on harsh roads.

 “The M655 really excels in mixed service applications, where traction and stability are important,” says Dave Johnston, senior product manager, commercial truck tires for Toyo.

 “The tire’s ability to clean out mud, snow, and debris while maintaining grip on ice increases uptime for your fleet. You can count on it to keep you and your equipment safe year-round.”

The the M655 was first released in Canada, where the company says it its ability tackle some of the harshest and most abrasive operating environments encountered by a commercial vehicle was proven.  It is designed and manufactured using Toyo Tires’ proprietary e-balance casing technology resulting in greater stability and longevity under heavy loads. 

The new Toyo M655 all-weather tire will be available come April in two sizes, 225/70R19.5 14-ply and 245/70R19.5 16-ply. 

Visitors to the 2019 Mid-America Trucking Show March 28-30 Louisville, Ky., can see it at the Toyo Tires booth, number 34225.
