Toyo Brings Celsius Tire to Commercial Delivery Vehicles
Toyo Tire U.S.A. Corp. is expanding its all-weather Celsius line to commercial van and light truck applications with the Celsius Cargo.
The Celsius Cargo features durable construction and offers local delivery and service vehicles a commercial grade option with year-round reliability.
Toyo says the Celsius Cargo provides better snow and ice traction than a typical all-season tire and longer tread life than a winter tire. It carries the 3-Peak Mountain Snowflake symbol. Here are four more characteristics:
- the all-weather design features an outside tread designed for all-season performance and an inside tread for winter traction;
- a circumferential rib and lower void ratio on the outside tread maximizes wet and dry performance;
- zigzag shaped tread blocks with high sipe density, snow claws, and slush grooves on the inside tread evacuate snow and ice for cold weather traction; and
- a durable sidewall provides extra protection against curb damage, and the sturdy casing provides handling and stability during frequent stops and starts.
“With an emphasis on year-round convenience and winter weather safety, we are excited to add the Celsius Cargo to the already popular Celsius product line,” says Toyo's Conrad Galamgam. “Our newest tire complements our proven Celsius and Celsius CUV tires by offering popular fitments for a variety of commercial vans and light trucks.”
The Celsius Cargo all-weather commercial tire is available in three popular fitments including the Ford Transit 150/250/350 and Ford F-250/350 Super Duty. An additional 10 sizes in for 16-inch to 18-inch wheel diameters will be released in September.
