With over 60 years of experience, Toyo Tires stands behind innovation, quality, performance, and excellent service to offer one of the finest tire brands on the market today. Toyo Tire has not been around very long compared to Michelin or Firestone, but they have been extremely successful. Rikimatsu Tomihisa founded Toyo Tire & Rubber Co., Ltd. in Japan in 1945. Toyo Tire established the first ever subsidiary of any Japanese Company in the United States in 1966. For the first nine years, the Toyo Tire (USA) warehouse only distributed Commercial Truck Tires. By 1975 Toyo Tire started adding Passenger Replacement Tires as inventory of the USA warehouses. The first production plant in the United States was opened in the late 1980's.
A strong reputation has helped Toyo Tire to be one of the finest Tire Manufacturers offering products to the United States. The North American Tire Dealers voted Toyo Tires the #1 overall Brand numerous times in the Tire Review Magazine's Annual Tire Brand Study. Toyo Tires consumer tires have been voted #1 an unbelievable seven times since 2000, by the North American Tire Dealers. The Medium Truck tires developed and manufactured by Toyo Tires have received praise five times since 2002.
