CYPRESS, CA - Toyo Tires introduces its newest member of the Versado family of luxury tires, the Versado CUV for crossover vehicles. Designed specifically for this growing vehicle segment, the Versado CUV carries on a tradition of comfortable and quiet operation while being loaded with advanced features to enhance handling, stability and fuel efficiency.
Toyo Tires' proprietary Silent WallTM technology utilizes thousands of vertical serrations along the walls of the circumferential tread grooves to significantly reduce "pipe resonance", an annoying whistling audible to the human ear. An attractive asymmetric, non-directional tread and multi-wave sipes also contribute to a smooth, quiet ride throughout the life of the tire.
Fuel efficiency is on everyone's minds in today's world. A new low rolling-resistance compound makes the Versado CUV Toyo Tires' most fuel-efficient tire yet. Additional benefits of this compound include wear resistance and all-season performance.
A computer-optimized casing and a large block and rib design deliver an improved distribution of tread pressure to the road surface for enhanced handling and stability. Four wide circumferential grooves evacuate water while open lateral slits improve water drainage. Multi-slant grooves enhance traction in inclement weather, making the Versado CUV optimum for a vehicle with a broad range of uses such as a crossover.
The Versado CUV is available in 25 sizes to fit 17- through 20-inch diameter wheels. To learn more about this exciting new tire built for popular crossover vehicles, log on to toyotires.com.
