Toyo Tire U.S.A. Corp.’s M137 premium high performance steer radial is for long haul, over-the-highway applications. This tire is designed to deliver more miles to operators driving coast-to-coast.

The M137 is a product of the Toyo e-balance design technology for commercial truck tires that focuses on a stiffer belt package, stiffer bead construction and optimization through simulation technology. Benefits include improved tire life, improved endurance, improved irregular wear resistance and improved fuel consumption, according to the manufacturer.

A new tread design provides even contact pressure distribution across the tread surface resulting in smooth wear and extended tire life. The casing profile minimizes growth of the tread and maintains a more uniform and flatter tread radius throughout services, also improving the tire life.

The M137 also has improved profile retention as a result of e-balance technology, which reduces strain at the belt and ply turn-up edges. During operation, special cap and base tread compounds reduce heat at the belt edge and excessive heat build-up inside the tire structure, according to the manufacturer.

Its 15/32nd deep five-rib design is coupled with deep sipes and four straight, multi-pitched grooves for enhanced water drainage and wet traction in challenging weather conditions. Vehicle safety also is improved while tire noise is reduced with the aid of T-Mode, Toyo’s computer tire simulation technology.

The M137 is available in two sizes, a 295/75R22.5 and a 285/75R24.5.
