About Us: History

A brief history of Toyo Tires

Toyo Tires has stood for innovation, quality, performance, and excellent service for 70 years, including nearly 50 years in the United States. Combined, the Toyo group of companies has development, manufacturing, testing, distribution, and marketing operations throughout the Americas, Europe, Asia, the Middle East, and Oceania.
The company offers a complete selection of premium replacement tires for nearly every make and model including light trucks, SUVs, high performance cars and luxury vehicles as well as commercial trucks.  Consumer product lines include the popular Open Country® tires for light trucks and SUVs; Proxes® ultra-high performance tires; Versado® tires for luxury passenger cars; and the value line of Extensa® passenger car tires.
The M-Line is a leading value alternative in the commercial tire segment, consistently delivering fleets a lower cost per mile.
Many of the light truck and passenger tires are built in the United States at their state-of-the-art factory in Bartow County, Georgia.

A Commitment to North America

We believe the demand for product diversity will continue to grow, and to meet that demand, Toyo Tires has created a strong production and distribution chain.
From the beginning, Toyo Tires has been committed to the North American market. In 2004, the company's actions reinforced that commitment. At a time when other manufacturers were looking for options outside of the United States, Toyo Tires opened a state-of-the-art manufacturing and warehousing facility in White, Georgia, just 50 miles northwest of Atlanta.
In the summer of 2015, the company will complete the fourth expansion project, bringing more jobs and more tires to the United States.


Today, Toyo Tires has been embraced by racers, enthusiasts and everyday drivers.  You’ll find our full-line of products, for everything from light trucks to sports cars and even heavy duty trucks, at thousands of dealers across the United States. 
As it was in the beginning, the commitment of Toyo Tires to innovation, quality, performance, and excellent customer service is unwavering and ongoing.
