Toyo delves into aerodynamics, noise with new technologies

Hyogo, Japan — Toyo Tire & Rubber Co. Ltd. has disclosed the development of technologies designed to reduce a tire’s aerodynamic drag and to cut tire cavity noise significantly.

The first technology, which Toyo is calling “Mobility Aerodynamics,” uses aerodynamic flow simulations to allow the company to predict the aerodynamic characteristics of tires and vehicles under rolling tire contact patch conditions.

Toyo claims using mobility aerodynamics will give it an advantage with vehicle makers in being able to propose ideas that could result in improved fuel consumption…
