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.

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.

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.
