Performance starts with safety
Performance isn’t just speed, braking, acceleration, and cornering. It’s also keeping more tread on the road for more control so you arrive at your destination safely. Toyo engineers have found new ways to incorporate natural materials like walnut shells into tires that makes them safer for drivers, passengers, and the environment.
Found in many of our tires, multi-wave sipes lock together when you brake, keeping more tread on the road for better traction and less irregular wear.
Microbit Technology in out winter tires turns walnut shell microbits—among the hardest natural elements—into tiny spikes for better snow and ice traction.
Carbonic powder derived from bamboo increases safety by absorbing moisture on the road surface so our winter tires make better contact.
Found in many of our tires, silica tread compounds enhance wet grip and braking, helping to maintain control and traction, while at the same time lowering rolling resistance.
