If you are looking for an all-around performance tire that offers excellent handling on dry roads, as well as snow, sleet or rain, you may want to consider the Toyo Extensa A/S. Available for a wide range of passenger cars as well as minivans, the Toyo Extensa A/S offers comfort, convenience and extended tread life, making it a popular all-around tire, particularly for family vehicles and commuters.
There are a number of features that help this tire to hold the road while also guarding against irregular tread wear.
The symmetric tread design allows cross-rotation, which helps to extend life and greatly reduce the chance of irregular tread wear, while also contributing to excellent all-season traction. Its optimized center block arrangement gives this tire variable-pitch angles which makes for excellent road contact. The result is a noticeably comfortable ride for you and your passengers across a variety of terrains.
Add to this, the four wide circumferential grooves and variable pitch channels, quickly evacuating water when you hit rain and snow conditions, for improved wet traction. The shoulder rib of the Toyo Extensa A/S is designed to minimize irregular wear as well as increase stability, adding to the tire's reputation for longevity and reliability.
Finally, the multi-wave sipes add to the tire's ability to minimize irregular wear and yield longer treader life, while also improving snow traction.
The Toyo Extensa A/S comes in a wide variety of tire sizes, manufactured to fit wheel diameters ranging from 13 to 18 inches. While most come in black sidewalls, there are several white sidewalls available for 14- and 15-inch wheels, depending on your load and speed needs.
This well-rounded passenger tire is rated 2.5 for dry handling on a scale of 1 to 5, while it scores a 3.5 under wet conditions. Tread life is where this tire really shines, though, scoring a 4.5 out of 5. Not surprisingly, winter handling and rolling resistance also scored well, with both rating a 4.0 out of 5. Evidence of this tire's reputation for a quiet, comfortable ride can be found in its score of 4 for both quietness of ride as well as ride comfort.
Adding to the excellent value of these tires is an additional tread-wear warranty that goes beyond the manufacturer's normal limited warranty. Tires that are S (112 mph) or T (118 mph) speed-rated carry an additional tread-wear warranty of 65,000 miles while those with an H (130 mph) have a tread-wear warranty for 50,000 miles.
