LinkedIn +

Toyo Tire USA has introduced the Toyo M588 heavy duty on/off-road drive tire to its line-up. The M588 is built for severe service applications including oil, gas, mining, and logging operations.

It features a 33/32in tread and special cut and chip resistant compound, enabling it to withstand the harshest of conditions such as scoria and caliche roads, snow and mud. It also has aggressive side protectors molded into the sidewall of the tire, which protect from cut damage by rocks, and the continued use of snow chains in severe winter regions.

Furthermore, the M588 has a unique tread block arrangement with a high-void design, which is said to provide good traction on mud and snow. Special siping on top of the tread blocks enhances traction further. Between the blocks and inside the grooves, several features such as stone ejectors and mud breakers improve performance. Angled inline lateral grooves, also between the tread blocks, help evacuate packed mud and prevent snow chains from dropping into the grooves.
