Toyo Tires operates one of the most aggressive and comprehensive testing programs in the industry. This helps to develop and distribute products with consistently high quality, including excellent safety and performance. In addition to the following proving grounds and technical center in Japan, extensive real-world testing is performed in each of company's markets around the globe. But the testing doesn't stop at the places listed on this page.
At Toyo Tires, everybody believes in innovation through competition. As a result, they are actively involved in a variety of motorsports worldwide. This includes everything from the SPEED World Challenge GT and Touring Car series, which competes on famous racetracks across the United States, to the Dakar Rally, which covers some of the roughest terrain in the world. This assists engineers in developing and testing prototype materials, construction and performance concepts.
Our Test Facilities
Toyo Tires Proving Ground - Miyazaki, Japan
At the Toyo Tires Proving Ground in Miyazaki, Japan thay conduct high-speed performance, endurance, and noise tests on passenger car, light truck and bus tires. The facility also includes a test track to monitor and analyze steering stability characteristics of Toyo Tires products.
Toyo Tires Proving Ground - Saroma, Japan
Snow and all-season tires are evaluated at the Toyo Tires Proving Ground in Saroma, Japan. At the facility, Toyo Tires engineers accurately measure performance characteristics such as traction, braking, and steering response in real-life, demanding winter conditions.
Toyo Tires Technical Center - Itami, Japan
The Toyo Tires Technical Center in Itami, Japan is one of the most advanced tire-development centers in the world. It contains state-of-the-art design, development, and testing equipment, including the Flat-Trac II tire testing machine and the super-computer based simulation system responsible for T-mode designed products.
Over the years, Toyo Tires has pioneered the development of vehicle-specific tires and ultra high-performance sport tires. Advanced polymer technology played a role in these breakthroughs, but they were also made possible by company's proprietary virtual testing systems.
T-Mode, Toyo Tires' latest form of this technology, uses computer simulation to virtually test vehicle-mounted tires in an array of driving conditions. Uneven tread wear, noise generation and a series of other factors are also analyzed. This data is then used to optimize tire design and enhance performance.
