Toyo Versado- 255/65R18 with pictures.

Heres what the current Toyo Versados look like.
These are also filled to 35 PSI to maintain the same rating as the factory Forteras.

Why am I including pics?
If any of you are like me--- you like to see the tread and sidewalls appearance.
I like clean smooth sidewalls. The Forteras had very smooth clear sidewalls.
The Toyos are not as smooth-- but the designs on the sidewall dont stick out too much-making application of tire dressing easier.
(ever try applying tire dressing on tires where the letters etc are raised significantly? its a pain....

I did look at the images of the Toyos on the toyo website. But small print says...
construction/specs subject to change.

Toyo Tires have a No Regrets Policy. 45 days or 500 miles.. Dont like them-- take them back.

Pricing...

I go to a small shop. Owner and 2 employees.
$175 per tire.

$175 x 4 = $700
CA tax 8.75% = $61.25
Computer balance $40.

$801.25 out the door.




Sidewall Close ups




WHole tire- side view



Tread Design


Side view profile of the tire..
If you notice- the area where the tire meets the rim- its slightly different than the Forteras... I think it sticks out a little more.

How are they as far as noise, driving in the rain and the snow? I will need tires before winter. The Coopers didn't last as long as I thought they would. Love them but.....alot of money for only a few thousand miles.

My 18 inch versados..

WAYYY quieter than the factory tires.
ride smooth.


We dont get too much rain in So cal... but the few times we have had it-- I didnt sense any slippage.

Snow--- cant help you there.

Re: Toyo Versado- 255/65R18 with pictures.

I purchased two Versado CUV tires for the front of the Outlook cause money is tight right now. I have put 600 miles on them in a couple of weeks and have had rain and snow to drive them in, and just love them. Mpg has increased slightly.
I will be buying two more sometime this summer or fall because the two Cooper CS4's on the back will not make it another winter.
