Toyo Tire U.S.A. Corp. (Toyo Tires®) introduces the Toyo® Celsius® II all-weather touring tire. From summer to winter, this versatile tire provides driving comfort, wet weather grip, and traction in light snow. With a focus on true year-round performance, the Celsius II carries the Three-Peak Mountain Snowflake symbol, signifying it’s qualified for severe snow conditions. This all-new tire will replace the existing Celsius® and Celsius® CUV tire models.
Built for the varying road conditions that drivers may face, the Celsius II picks up where all-season tires fall short by providing better ice and snow traction than a typical all-season tire for the convenience of year-round use. It also comes with a 60,000-mile treadwear warranty and a 45-Day/500-Mile Trial Offer.
The Celsius II tread pattern utilizes two designs, differentiated on the outside and inside of the tire. The outer tread carries all-season attributes for wet and dry performance, maintaining traction from the balance of sipe density and interlocking multi-wave sipes. The inside tread utilizes more winter-focused characteristics for ice and snow traction with high sipe density and zigzag shaped tread blocks. A specialized silica compound provides high grip for improved wet braking and handling while maintaining flexibility in cold climates. Additional features include snow claws that dig into the snow to improve traction and a slush groove to evacuate slush and snow.
“The Celsius II is an exciting step forward in our all-weather lineup,” said Cameron Parsons, Product Engineer & Field Analyst, Competition & Specialty Tires, Toyo Tire U.S.A. Corp. “We paid close attention to the feedback we received regarding the Celsius and Celsius CUV and made improvements in key areas of performance. Thanks to our extensive research, development, and testing, the Celsius II will deliver better year-round performance and driver confidence than ever before.”
This versatile tire is a single-stocking solution for passenger cars and CUVs with 76 Euro-metric sizes, 15 to 22-inch rim diameters, and S, T, H, V, and W speed ratings. The line-up includes sizes for sedans and CUVs from makes including Chevrolet, Ford, Honda, Nissan, Subaru, and Toyota. The most popular sizes will be available in February with additional sizes/fitments to follow in subsequent months.
