Toyo introduces new refuse tire

by Truck News

CYPRESS, Calif. — Toyo Tire has introduced a new regional and urban heavy-duty steer tire it says is ideal for refuse operations.

The Toyo M153 features an extra deep, regroovable 26/32” tread and is optimized for high-scrub applications.

It has a 10,000-lb carrying capacity and a unique buttress protector designed to reduce cutting and curb damage to the sidewall, the company claims. Toyo’s e-balance technology ensures even wear.

“The new Toyo M153 is an ideal steer tire for trucks subjected to heavy duty use,” said Lowell Slimp, senior product manager, commercial truck tires, Toyo Tire USA.  “Its combination of design elements along with an extra deep tread, allows it to handle the punishment normally associated with refuse operations.”
