Toyo has introduced the M154 premium all-steel regional highway tire to the market as well as the M137 high-performance steer tire for long-haul applications. Both tires were created using e-balance, according to the company, a design technique which improves tire life, endurance and resistance to irregular wear. The company notes it was recently named number one brand for medium truck tires by Tire Review magazine. The award was based on surveys of North American tire dealers.

Advantage PressurePro has introduced a tire pressure monitoring system for drop-and-hook applications. The company claims its system is the first drop-and-hook product in the market. It has been designed for fleets that use multiple trailers and frequently tether and untether their equipment. The system consists of: an intelligent monitor; intelligent repeater; and sensors. The repeater is located on the trailer, and communicates tire pressures to the in-cab monitor when the tractor and trailer are connected. When the trailer is unhooked, the monitor “forgets” that trailer and begins looking for new readings, the company says. For details visit www.advantagepressurepro.com.

Bridgestone Bandag Tire Solutions has added two sizes to its line of Firestone FD690 Plus deep drive axle radial tires, intended for pickup and delivery fleets seeking long mileage. A 225/70R19.5 and 245/70R19.5 offering has been introduced to round out the product line, the company announced. The FD690 features a continuous shoulder design to combat irregular wear.
