ITEC

CLEVELAND, OHIO – Front and center at ITEC 2010 this week, Toyo Tire U.S.A Corp. will showcase a new eco-friendly tire and promote the company’s green technology.

In a green-themed display will be Versado® Eco, a new luxury performance tire designed to maximize contact with the road while minimizing ones environmental footprint.  Coming in spring 2011, this all-season tire will be the perfect complement to today’s popular hybrids and other environmentally–friendly vehicles.

For commercial applications, a commercial tire section will feature four U.S. EPA SmartWaysm verified tires.  With many of those products incorporating Toyo Tires’ e-balance™ technology, these low-rolling resistance tires help line-haulers to save fuel while reducing greenhouse gases.

Continuing the focus of technology, the company will also introduce a maximum performance tire on Tuesday.  This new product showcases the technological capabilities of Toyo Tires, taking the UHP segment to a new level of performance and sophistication.
