Toyo Tires’ M144 regional steer earns SmartWay verification

April 2, 2014

Toyo Tires said its M144 regional steer tire has now received SmartWay verification, meaning it meets U.S. EPA standards for low-rolling resistance.

The tire is built using Toyo’s e-balance technology. An optimized casing profile provides better retreadability, helping to reduce overall operating costs.

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.

“The M144 is a part of our growing selection of SmartWay verified tires,” said Lowell Slimp, senior product manager, commercial truck tires, Toyo Tire U.S.A. Corp.   “We are dedicated to expanding the number of these low rolling resistance products, with more announcements planned for later this year.”
