CYPRESS, Calif. (June 29, 2011)—Toyo Tire USA Corp. said its Versado Eco tire, which it previewed to dealers at last year's International Tire Exhibition & Conference in Cleveland, is now available to the marketplace.
The Versado Eco is an all-season, low-rolling-resistance luxury performance tire designed for hybrids and other environmentally friendly vehicles, Toyo said. Using a combination of technology and materials friendly to the environment, the Versado Eco can deliver low rolling resistance without sacrificing tread life, luxury or performance, the Cypress-based tire maker said.
Toyo said Eco Circle Fibers made from recycled polyester are used in the casing construction.
The Versado Eco is available to fit wheels from 15- to 18-inches in diameter, and an OE tire upgrade for vehicles such as: Toyota Prius and Camry Hybrid, Lexus HS250h and CT200h, Honda Civic Hybrid and Insight and Chevrolet Malibu Hybrid.
