The Nitto tire brand is owned by Toyo Tire, a relatively small Japanese brand that specializes in truck and high performance tires. Most of their manufacturing centers are in Asia, but Toyo opened a factory in Georgia (U.S.) around 2004 to serve North America. It employs over 1,000 people as of 2015.
The Nitto Motivo is backed by a class leading mileage warranty of 60,000 miles, which is very unusual for UHP tires that have a W- or Y-speed rating. According to Nitto, they have rated the UTQG treadwear rating as 560 AA, which they say is made possible by using silica and a special binding agent.
We are intrigued by what could be a long-lasting UHP A/S tire. The reviews are very positive. They are currently made for rim sizes between 17" - 20", and are made in the U.S.Read all Nitto Motivo Reviews at Discount Tire
