New SmartWay Verified Toyo M677 Drive Tire Delivers Fuel Efficiency, Long Tread Life

CYPRESS, CA -- Toyo Tire U.S.A. Corp. (Toyo Tires®) introduces the new Toyo® M677™, a US EPA SmartWay® verified drive tire.  Designed for regional and long haul operations, the new M677 is a four-groove tire built to maximize fuel efficiency while delivering excellent wear performance and great traction.  These benefits combined with a competitive acquisition point make the M677 a leading value alternative tire for long haul and regional fleets. 

Maximized fuel efficiency comes from lowering the rolling resistance of the tire with features such as a new silica compound that reduces energy loss during operation without sacrificing tread life. Large tread blocks and a closed, high-rigidity shoulder rib also lower rolling resistance.

Excellent wear life is the result of a wide, 28/32”-deep tread and features that promote even wear including the large tread blocks and a closed, high-rigidity shoulder rib.

The M677 features Toyo’s proprietary e-balance® technology which delivers extended wear life and improved retreadability. . During the design phase, e-balance technology helps identify and solve for stress and irregular wear on the tire.

The Toyo M677 also delivers great traction thanks to the computer-optimized tread design with deep slits between the tread blocks.  Those large tread blocks also help resist cuts and chips.

“We are excited to add the M677 to our ever expanding line of SmartWay verified, fuel-efficient products. This tire will help reduce fleet operating costs by delivering exceptional fuel economy and long wear life,” said Mike Graber, senior product manager, Toyo Tire U.S.A. Corp.  “It is designed to maintain great traction throughout its original tread life, prolonging the service time of the tire.” 

The M677 is available in four sizes to meet the demands of the regional to long haul segment: 295/75R22.5, 285/75R24.5, 11R22.5, and 11R24.5.
