Executives from Toyo Tires USA visited Craig last week to meet with representatives from Chapman's Automotive and Tri-State Equipment about the fleet test program implemented by Toyo.

Toyo Tires USA, with the assistance of Chapman's, is working with Tri-State Equipment's fleet to analyze their cutting edge, innovative products to ensure they are meeting the needs of those in Northwest Colorado and southwestern Wyoming.

The testing period began in September.

JB Chapman, owner of Chapman's Automotive, said the testing period indicated the newest tires produced by Toyo are "producing the expected results, which will continue to keep Toyo on the forefront of tire quality."
