5 Reasons Why You NEED Toyo Tires

July 21, 2021

 

Toyo Tires dates back all the way to 1945 originally known as Toyo Rubber Industrial. They have several extremely reputable lineups for both the performance world, like their Proxes lineup, and their daily driving/intermediate performance applications, like the Toyo Extensa HP II.

Outside of car tires, they also have widely popular off-road tire lineups geared towards SUVs and trucks.

There are plenty of examples of Toyo Tires having a huge presence in the motorsports world, but they've also consistently brought high-quality, reliable tires for the other side of the car community spectrum. 

All in all, Toyo’s rubber is pretty badass and they have the trophies to prove it.

Toyo Tires’ High-Quality Manufacturing & R+D Process

One of Toyo's biggest talking points is its reputable manufacturing and R+D process.

Toyo Tires uses Nano Balance Technology, which allows them to change rubber compounds on a molecular level, and 3D Observational Technology, which essentially zooms into the tire compound really close so they can see their tires' structures in more detail.

Why does this matter to you?

Well, this gives enthusiasts reassurance that even the small details of their tires are being analyzed and optimized on a molecular level. In other words, this means that their materials and processes are incredibly good.

They also take much pride in voluntarily pledging to follow the Sustainable Natural Rubber Initiative (SNR-i) guidelines for tire manufacturers. 

Toyo Tires signed this initiative back in 2016 because they care about their impact on natural rubber and forest sustainability and love more efficient and cleaner manufacturing processes.

That sounds pretty dope to us.

Where Are Toyo Tires Made?

Just like any other tire manufacturer, Toyo Tires has quite a few different manufacturing facilities throughout the world, but their main headquarters is in the United States, specifically Georgia.

Many of their tires are manufactured at their Bartow County, Georgia facility, but they also have plants in Japan, Indonesia, and China.

Now, before you get all upset, just because some of their tires are manufactured in China, this doesn't mean their tires are crap. There's a huge stigma regarding anything automotive manufacturing in China, and I get it because I've felt it myself at times. 

But, again, Toyo has made it known that they care about their manufacturing processes and even go as far as discussing fair human and labor rights at their facilities overseas—just as any good, ethical company would.

Regardless, they still manufacturer a lot of their car and truck tires right here in the US.

Motorsports Involvement

As you might have guessed, Toyo Tires has had a huge presence in the world of motorsports.

Their racing legacy in the US started in the early 1980s
