Toyo Extensa HP 2 Tires (Our Review)

Overall Assessment

The Toyo Extensa HP 2 is designed to be used all-year-round. It boasts a unidirectional tread design with a special silica tread compound, which, combined with the zigzag circumferential and lateral grooves, ensure high performance on wet terrain. 

Even when used on roads with a thin layer of snow, the Extensa HP 2 won’t let you down. Steering responsiveness is uncompromised, making it easier for you to make sharp turns as safely as possible.

Furthermore, the single-cut and double-cut tapers give the tire the right block stiffness, optimizing braking performance and reducing distance by up to 30 feet less than the previous model.

The multi-wave sipes make uneven tread wear a thing of the past, providing you with a ride that’s quieter than ever before. However, the comfort part is a bit compromised when riding on very rough roads.

Overall, we’re impressed with what this tire has to offer, considering that it’s very reasonably priced. We’d recommend a set of these tires for anyone looking for a comfortable ride 365 days a year.

Pros:

  • Perfect for all-season use
  • Even tread wear with multi-wave sipes to maximize comfort
  • Decent wet traction with short braking distance
  • Provides a quiet and comfortable ride

Cons:

  • Not suitable for use in heavy snow
  • Uninspiring performance on rough terrain
