Baffled to prevent fuel sloshing

Wide tread pattern provides
even contact pressure
The NanoEnergy M671 Regional Drive Tire
from Toyo Tire U.S.A. is designed to provide
superior traction, fuel efficiency, and wear life. It is
SmartWay verified and offers improved tread compounds developed through the company's proprietary Nano Balance Technology. The M671 features
an advanced e-balance design to maintain tread
profile while reducing strain at the bead area and
belt edge for stability and longevity under heavy
loads, as well as a wide tread pattern with 3D sipes
to provide even contact pressure. The combination
of a high elongation top belt and stone ejectors
also help protect the casing from cuts and damage,
providing retreadability.

The Transfer Flow 45-gal Ford F-150 Midship
Replacement Fuel Tank is engineered for 2018 to
2020 gasoline Ford F-150 SuperCrew pickups with
5-1/2' and 6-1/2' beds, as well as the F-150 Raptor
SuperCrew with 5-1/2' bed. Each fuel tank is manufactured from 12-gauge ReliaSteel for durability and
strength, and comes equipped with a highly engineered emissions system to reduce the amount of
hydrocarbons released into the atmosphere. The
tank is ideal for drivers who want to maximize their
fuel capacity and driving range without sacrificing
truck bed space. The tank comes with straps and
mounting hardware, mounts inside the frame rail,
and is covered by a six-year, unlimited mileage warranty. It is 50-state legal and made in the U.S.A.

Ideal tread for highly severe applications
The Vipal Rubber VT560 Tire Tread was developed to obtain high grip on different types of
applications, and whether on paved or unpaved
roads. It features Eye Control technology, which
assists the end user in identifying anomalies in
alignment, balance, and geometry, as well as the
suggested time of use and when to remove the
tire for a new retreading process. Its rubber compound ensures abrasion-wear resistance, making
it an ideal tread for highly severe applications,
such as snow and mud. It also features grooves
with variable carvings that avoid the retention of
rocks and objects and interconnected blocks that
provide greater resistance and support between
the base and the blocks.
