Toyo Tires says its M647 premium drive tire — designed for local, regional and long haul highway applications — has a deep 30/32-inch tread to provide improved wear and long service life. The M647 is designed using Toyo’s proprietary e-balance technology designed to minimize the growth of the tread profile during operation, which helps to maintain a more uniform and flatter tread radius during the entire life of the casing, resulting in long wear.

The company says the casing profile also is enhanced with the combination of e-balance profile retention technology and a high stiffness bead, while sheer strain is reduced at the belt edge area in the tread and in the bead. Irregular wear is reduced by incorporating high rigidity in the shoulder of the tire, thus improving the durability of the M647, according to Toyo; traction also is maintained over the life of the tread thanks to deep slits engineered into the design that are equal to the main groove depth.

The initial size offering of the Toyo M647 premium drive radial is a 295/75R22.5 in a 14-ply, load range G. For more information, go to
