Toyo Tire and Rubber Company was founded in Japan back in 1945. Since then they have expanded to the USA in the 1960s, and in 1982 Toyo Tire Canada was opened as well. Their performance heritage has even extended to Nitto, of which they are a corporate parent. Their slogan is “Driven to Perform” and that statement can be proven by observing any angle of their company. From great economy tires for families, to super sticky competition tires for drift cars like Ken Block’s Hoonicorn, to super aggressive mud tires for off road vehicles, Toyo tires are extremely well known for their competitive pricing and superior performance.
One of the first tires a truck tuner will hear recommended is the Open Country line, and with good reason. The A/T and M/T Open Country tires from Toyo both come with super stylish treads, and are rated for outstanding performance when off-road. Another Toyo claim to fame is their winter tire technology, which uses crushed walnuts in the compound of their Observe GSI-5 tire to help your car grip through snow and dig into ice for maximum traction in cold conditions. Moreover the Toyo Celsius is one of the first “All Year” tires, with a tire compound that is built to last, but tread siping in place to perform in snow that is so good it includes the Alpine stamp which are required for areas with winter tire laws. Families looking for a great value tire with awesome performance that rides so quietly you may never hear it, can shop for the Proxes 4+, an all-season tire designed with quality and comfort in mind.
