Toyo Tire U.S.A. Corp. has added 19.5-inch sizes to its Toyo M671A regional drive tire.
"The newest size addition further broadens Toyo Tire’s M671A commercial tire application for urban and regional fleets, including 225/70R19.5 G/14 and 245/70R19.5 H/16 sizes, available April 1," say Toyo officials.
"The M671A 19.5-inch provides superior traction, exceptional fuel efficiency, and excellent wear life. Improved tread compounds developed through the company’s proprietary Nano Balance Technology contribute to these desirable features."
In addition, the M671A features Toyo's advanced e-balance design, which maintains the tire's tread profile, while reducing strain at the bead area and belt edge for greater stability and longevity under heavy loads.
"It also features an optimized wide tread pattern with 3D sipes that provide even contact pressure (and) increased traction and reduces irregular wear for longer tire life."
A combination of a high-elongation top belt and stone ejectors help protect the tire's casing from cuts and other types of damage, while advanced sidewall and tread compounds contribute to enhanced fuel efficiency.
“The new 19.5-inch sizes for the M671A regional drive tire provide a broader range in options for the ever-growing final mile delivery segment,” says Dave Johnston, senior product manager, commercial truck tires, Toyo Tire U.S.A. Corp.
“Greater stability is provided through a closed shoulder with an extra durable sidewall for city hazards, while delivering outstanding traction for inclement weather.”
The M671A regional drive tire includes both 19.5-inch and 22.5-inch sizes in five SKUs: 225/70R19.5 G/14, 245/70R19.5 H/16, 295/75R22.5 G/14, 11R22.5 G/14, and 11R22.5 H/16.
