Toyo Tire has added a new drive tire to its commercial vehicle lineup. The M650 is a Smartway-verified tire designed for regional haul service and higher-torque operating conditions.
The M650 was developed using the company’s proprietary E-balance technology which optimizes design to offer extended casing life, exceptional durability, and reduced fuel consumption. Performance and durability are also enhanced by tread design and construction, the company said.
The rib/lug pattern has a deep tread depth of 28/32 in. for optimum performance in both wet and dry conditions, while tie bars on the shoulder bridge help reduce tread block movement. Four steel belt construction braces the tread area for improved mileage, while providing resistance to irregular wear and contributing to the reduced rolling resistance.
“The new M650 combines drive traction with low rolling resistance for regional haul trucks,” said Lowell Slimp, senior product manager, commercial truck tires. “This helps to further expand the SmartWay verified offerings from Toyo Tires, giving commercial truck operators a greater selection when outfitting their rigs to meet their specific needs.”
The tire will fit 22.5 in. wheels.
