Toyo Tire U.S.A. Corp. announces the Toyo M144 has received SmartWays verification, confirming it meets U.S. EPA standards for low-rolling resistance.  The addition of this regional steer tire to the Toyo Tires SmartWay line-up gives fleets and independent operators more choices when selecting fuel efficient tires for their commercial trucks.
