INTERVIEW - THE FITS
Carbon made from bamboo?
A common misconception is that if there is ice it’s the only thing we have to deal with for traction. When in fact there is a thin layer of moisture that comes between the tire and the ice.
What’s the difference?
With the recent emergence of all weather tires, a lot of people are asking; what’s the difference compared to an all season tire?
Let's talk about the mix!
It’s not only stating that you have one technology or another it’s about how well the technology is blended into the tread rubber.
What are all weather tires?
An all weather tire is really a super charged all-season tire that’s capable of delivering a higher degree of traction, comfort and mileage. With new technology, tire manufacturers were able to produce this newer classification, and Toyo was able to improve on it! Really it is the ideal tire for the right conditions and or circumstances.
INTERVIEW - BOOMER
Boomer likes the performance but loves the quiet ride.
Do your sipes wave?
One place technology has changed drastically is in siping. Basically a sipe is a cut or a slit in a tire’s tread blocks. These sipes were original straight horizontal slits through the face of the tire. By having sipes it allowed for added edge effect and a better way for the water on slippery surfaces to escape.
INTERVIEW - THE GREENS
We have to be “design” conscious!
You should know that Toyo has spent years designing and testing their Observe line of winter tires. Once new technologies are discovered the process starts again in considerations of a better solution.
The "Greens" on the Versado ECO
It's all in the tread!
Microbit technology, carbon fiber, advanced siping and on and on, it all really comes down to the tread that touches the road. Once again using Toyo’s T-Mode technology this is where Toyo has an advantage over its competitors.
