Toyo Tire unveils super single

Feb. 18, 2015

Toyo Tires has taken the wraps off a new super single tire designed for regional and urban use. The M149 is an all-position tire with optimized construction and tread design delivers high uniformity, even wear, and excellent wet traction.

According to the company, the optimized profile minimizes casing growth of the tread area for long wear life.  Six straight and stiff ribs provide smooth wear and also contribute to long life.  There are five wide grooves with siping on the ribs for wet traction.  In addition, exceptional uniformity and balance contribute to a smooth ride.

Durability is improved through the use of wide steel belt construction braces across the tread area of the M149 while a high elongation top belt protects casing integrity.  A high stiffness bead filler also improves sidewall durability, Toyo said.

“We are pleased to add the M149 wide-based tire to our broad selection of Toyo commercial tire products,” said Lowell Slimp, senior product manager, commercial truck tires, Toyo Tire U.S.A. Corp.  “We remain committed to growing our product line and developing tires like this that give dealers and truck owner/operators what they need and want – longer tread life, excellent performance and durability that leads to retreadability.”
