Toyo Tires Introduces New High Value Extensa A/S All-Season Passenger Car Tire

Toyo Tires introduces the Extensa A/S, a new all-season tire which delivers extended wear and high value for passenger cars and minivans. A product of Toyo Tires’ Tmode computer design technology, this new tire delivers exceptional versatility with low maintenance, reliability, precise all-season handling and a comfortable ride. 

The Extensa A/S has a symmetric, non-directional tread design which allows for cross rotation and a long tread life. A shoulder rib connects shoulder blocks for increased stability while full-depth multi-wave sipes minimize irregular wear for a longer tread life and quiet, comfortable ride.


An optimized center block arrangement provides good ride comfort, while a high bead filler absorbs bumps and vibrations to minimize overall tire flex. Two full-width steel belts reside under a high-modulus polyester casing and high-wear cap/base tread compound. This combination delivers quiet operation, a smooth ride and durability. Four wide circumferential tread grooves work in conjunction with variable pitch channels to evacuate water for improved wet traction.


“We are proud to offer this new tire which delivers a great value for consumers with its combination of ride comfort and durability,” said Steve Hutchinson, vice-president of marketing, Toyo Tire U.S.A. Corp. “The Extensa A/S is a great addition to our full line of passenger car and light truck tires.”


Available in a wide range of fitments for 13 through 17-inch wheels, the Extensa A/S assures extra confidence on the road. Initial sizes total 19, an additional 27 sizes will be released through the summer. UTQG ratings include a 620 A B for “S” & “T” speed rated, and a 360 A A for “H” speed rated product.
