Toyo M137 Premium High-Performance Steer Tire Now Available in 16-Ply

CYPRESS, CALIFORNIA – The M137 premium high-performance steer radial manufactured by Toyo Tires is now available in a 16-ply with increased load carrying capacity.  Designed for use on long haul, over-the-highway commercial applications; the M137 is designed to deliver more miles per 32nds to operators driving coast-to-coast.

This EPA SmartWay verified tire uses e-balance™ technology and stiffer construction to improve tire life and endurance as well as resist irregular wear and reduce fuel consumption. An innovative casing profile minimizes growth of the tread and maintains a more uniform and flatter tread radius to also improve the life of the tire. Smooth wear and extended tire life are also aided by a new tread design that creates even contact pressure distribution across the tread surface. 

“Some modern truck designs have heavier front axles that result in more weight and more wear and tear on the tires.  In response to that trend, Toyo Tires now produces two sizes of the premium M137 steer for long haul fleets in a 16-ply,” said Lowell Slimp, senior product manager, commercial truck tires, Toyo Tire U.S.A. Corp.  “Our 16-ply M137 features an increased load-carrying capacity to handle the higher weight.  Additional benefits include improved wear performance, improved durability and a reduction in road noise through the life of the tire.”

The two sizes offered in 16-ply are 295/75R22.5 and 285/75R24.5. To learn more about the M137 premium high-performance steer in 16-ply, and about the full line of commercial tire products from Toyo Tires, log onto
