Toyo Tires Rolls Out Two New Sizes of M154 for Commercial Trucks

CYPRESS, CALIFORNIA – Toyo Tire U.S.A. Corp. has rolled out two new sizes of its popular Toyo M154 ultra-premium, regional highway commercial tire. The two new sizes are 265/75R22.5 and 245/75R22.5, both in load range G.

Released last year, the M154 incorporates Toyo Tires’ proprietary e-balance design technology which improves both endurance and resistance to irregular wear. Ideal for steer applications, but well suited for use in any position, this new design tire helps to reduce fuel consumption while delivering reliable operation.


Toyo Tires will showcase the M154 and the rest of its commercial product line at the Work Truck Show March 4-6, in Chicago. Of particular interest to these show goers will be the M143 and M608Z. Both product lines were recently expanded to include a size of 225/70R19.5, in load range G. This size is ideal for the new Ford F450 and F550, popular workhorses in the truck market.


The M143 is an all-position; all-steel low-profile radial designed using Toyo Tires’ DSOC II computer technology. It includes a special Belt-Defender compound to increase durability and casing life by fighting heat and stress. The M608Z is a premium drive axle tire has an extra wide block and lug pattern for reliable service when road conditions provide an extra challenge.
