CYPRESS, CA – Toyo Tire U.S.A. Corp. (Toyo Tires®) recognizes National Tire Safety Week, running May 28 – June 3, 2017. Presented by the U.S. Tire Manufacturers Association (USTMA) and supported by industry partners such as Toyo Tires, National Tire Safety Week is designed to educate motorists about the importance of tire safety and proper maintenance.
Simply adding routine tire maintenance to your lifestyle – such as checking your tire pressures on a regular basis; can help save fuel costs while helping keep your vehicle safe on the road. During National Tire Safety Week, several Toyo Tires dealers offer free safety checks, including checking tire pressures and inspecting your tires for wear. You can easily locate year nearest dealer by using the dealer locator at https://www.toyotires.com/dealer-finder.
For the do-it-yourselfer, you can easily locate your vehicle manufacturer’s recommended tire pressures on the tire placard. This can be found on the door and door jamb, glove box, trunk lid or fuel door. Toyo Tires also provides a convenient Tire Finder at https://www.toyotires.com/tire-finder which allows you to search your vehicle’s recommended tire inflation pressures. For custom vehicles with plus fitments, you can also locate the plus size on your vehicle and the recommended inflation pressures for that size.
Handy and informative tire maintenance videos are available in the Tires 101 section, or by linking to toyotires.com/tires-101. These highly informative videos address four essential topics: How to Check Your Tire Pressure, How to Check Tire Tread Depth, How to Inspect Tire Wear, and How to Read Your Tire Sidewall.
And new from Toyo Tires in 2017, owners of late model, high capacity pickups now have a safe alternative for customizing their trucks. F Load Range products are now available in Toyo’s most popular Open Country light truck tires. This new category addresses the increase in payload and towing capacity of today’s trucks, giving owners the freedom to personalize the look and style of their vehicles with a tire that is properly load rated.
“Toyo Tires recognizes the importance of properly maintaining a vehicle’s tires and suggests adding regular inspection intervals to your lifestyle,” said Amy Coleman, senior director of marketing, Toyo Tire U.S.A.
