CYPRESS, Calif. (March 27, 2014) — Toyo Tire U.S.A. Corp.’s M144 regional steer tire has received SmartWaysm verification, confirming it meets U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) standards for low-rolling resistance.
Toyo said the addition of the tire to its SmartWay line-up gives fleets and independent operators more choices when selecting fuel efficient tires for their commercial trucks.
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.
Additional tires in Toyo’s line-up that are SmartWay verified are the M177 steer tire for regional to long-haul; the M137 steer tire for long-haul; the M657 drive tire for regional to long-haul; and the M157 trailer position free-rolling tire.
“The M144 is a part of our growing selection of SmartWay verified tires,” said Lowell Slimp, senior product manager, commercial truck tires for Toyo.
“We are dedicated to expanding the number of these low rolling resistance products, with more announcements planned for later this year.”
Toyo Tires commercial products are currently on display at the Mid-America Trucking Show in Louisville, Ky., at Booth #32895.
