I hear it generally takes about 10 years for the smell to go away! Wait, that's when they have to be replaced anyway, right?

My Toyos were made in Japan.

Rear Toyos on my motorhome are 5 1/2 years old, no smell, and more imporantly, NO CRACKS in sidewalls.

Toyo is a Japanese company, but I believe these tires are made in the USA.

Four in the rear, took 9 months for the tire sewage smell to go away. The only good thing was that the smell didn't come into the house.

The tire dealer told me that they keep them outside and not in the warehouse storage area because they stink bad. When I went to the dealer they were outside alright.

I don't know about Toyo tires. But the rubber products at Harbor Fright smell pretty rank. Walk to the rear of one of their stores by the tires and tubes and take a whiff. Pretty rank if you ask me but I think it eventually goes away.

It's the new improved tire wear indicator. No need to inspect your tires. When they stop stinking it's time to replace!
