Toyo Tires® Introduces the NanoEnergy® M171, an All-New All Position Tire
Today’s super regional fleets have specific needs that are different from traditional long haul or regional tires,” said Dave Johnston, senior manager, commercial products and business development, Toyo Tire U.S.A. Corp. “Toyo Tires now offers two tires for the super regional segment, the NanoEnergy M171 all position tire and the NanoEnergy M671 drive tire. Toyo Tires continues to develop and bring to market tires made for today’s fleets.

CYPRESS, CALIFORNIA -- Toyo Tire U.S.A. Corp. (Toyo Tires®) announces the Toyo NanoEnergy® M171 super regional all position tire. The newest edition to the Toyo Tires M-Line of commercial tires, it provides fuel efficiency, excellent wear life and increased stability with improved tread compounds developed through Nano Balance Technology.

The M171 super regional all position tire complements the M671 super regional drive tire, and both are Smartway verified. Working together, these tires are specifically designed to provide exceptional fuel efficiency, superior traction, and long, even wear within demanding 500-mile radius operations. The M171 incorporates Toyo Tires advanced E-balance design, which maintains the tread profile of the tire, while reducing strain at the bead area and belt edge for greater stability and longevity under heavy loads. It also features an optimized wide tread pattern that provides an even contact pressure profile that reduces irregular wear for longer tire life.
 
The combination of a high elongation top belt, zig zag center grooves, and center sipes work together to ensure long even wear essential in a steer tire. Maximum fuel efficiency is achieved through the uniformity of the cap and base compound which increases irregular wear resistance.
