Toyo Tires’ value-driven Extensa product line is all about maximizing performance, quality, and tire life at a value price point. The latest generation Toyo Extensa HP II advances all these goals and puts high performance within reach of almost any budget.
Here are the key features that make it an attractive buy for value-minded car owners searching for entry-level high-performance all-season tires.
Contributing a purposeful performance look and style, the Extensa HP II’s updated, unidirectional (aka directional) tread pattern provides all season traction, including in light wintry conditions.
“Unidirectional” means the tread is designed to roll in only one direction and is optimized for all-around traction accordingly. Unidirectional tires are associated with superior handling in snow and standing water (strong hydroplaning resistance), as well as high-speed maneuvering.
The Extensa HP II’s “V” and “W” speed ratings speak to its high performance orientation.
The Extensa HP II is engineered to be an OE (factory) tire replacement option that meets or exceeds the benchmark performance of your vehicle’s original tires.
The Extensa HP II was developed with the Chevy Camaro, Ford Mustang, Honda Civic Si, Hyundai Veloster, Infiniti G35, Subaru Impreza WRX, and Toyota 86 in mind.
Toyo Tires invests substantial R&D into important tire tread compound technologies, and the Extensa HP II gets some of Toyo Tires’ latest developments.
The Extensa HP II’s updated silica compound works with the unique tread design to deliver improved traction in wet conditions.
The special silica compound also contributes to the Extensa HP II’s improved mileage.
Tire tread wear has long been associated with diminished tire performance, particularly in more difficult wet or wintry driving conditions. As tread wears, the tread design characteristics that work to maximize tire traction begin to fall off.
Tread technologies like full depth sipes can be integrated to counteract this performance degradation. By “cutting” to the full-depth of the tire tread, the fundamental tread design characteristics remain in effect as the tread wears all the way down to the tread wear bars.
The Extensa HP II’s full-depth multi-wave sipes guard against irregular wear, help ensure a smooth, quiet ride throughout the life of the tire, and enhance and prolong light snow traction as well.
The Extensa HP II’s 500 treadwear rating and 45,000-mile treadwear warranty compete with many non-performance commuter tires, and are strong indications of tire longevity.
Numerous sizes are available, increasing the likelihood that the Toyo Extensa HP II will be “plug and play” for your vehicle – no matter if you’re running original factory wheels or aftermarket.
