Toyo Tire U.S.A. Corp. has introduced its new M588, a commercial heavy-duty on/off-road drive tire. The M588 is built for severe service applications including oil, gas, mining and logging operations.
The drive tire is built for durability with a 33/32” tread depth. Its special cut and chip resistant compound combined with a competitive acquisition point makes it ideal for even the harshest elements such as rough terrain, snow and mud. Aggressive side protectors molded into the sidewall of the tire protect from cut damage by rocks and from the continued use of snow chains in severe winter regions.
The M588’s unique tread block arrangement is a high-void design and special siping on top of the tread blocks work to improve traction. In addition, ejectors, mud breakers, and angled inline lateral grooves between the tread blocks also help to evacuate packed mud and prevent snow chains from dropping into the grooves.
The new M588 tires are 16-ply and available in sizes 11R22.5, and 11R24.5.
“The M588 is an ideal solution for customers operating in tough and unforgiving conditions,” said Mike Graber, senior product manager for commercial tires, Toyo Tire U.S.A. Corp. “It is designed to take the abuse experienced in on/off road conditions such as oil fields and forestry applications.”
