PALM BEACH GARDENS, Fla. (Aug. 25, 2014) — TBC Corp. is adding three lines to its Dynacargo medium radial truck tire offerings.
The new lines—Dynacargo Y208FE Long Haul Steer, Dynacargo Y201FE Regional All Position and Dynacargo Y631—provide additional market coverage to independent and fleet customers and are covered by the Dynacargo limited warranty, TBC said.
The Dynacargo Y208FE is available in six popular long haul sizes and features a five-rib tread pattern. The tire features special tread compounds to promote even wear and traction in the steer axle position and is equipped with multiple sipes and decoupling grooves to enhance tire wear and traction for long haul applications, the company said.
The Dynacargo Y201FE is available in six sizes and features a five-rib tread pattern with enhanced siping, side grooves and wide shoulders for traction in wet and dry conditions.
The Dynacargo Y631 wide-base, mixed-service line is available in size 385/65R22.5, with additional sizes in development. The Y631 features an aggressive multipurpose tread design for on- and off-highway applications. The large tread elements of the Y631 improve handling and traction while the heavy-duty belt package and under-tread increases durability, uniform wear and stability, according to TBC.
The Dynacargo Y208 FE Long Haul Steer and the Dynacargo Y201 FE Regional All Position tires are SmartWay verified by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency.
“These tires are excellent additions to TBC’s ever-growing line of SmartWay-verified tires—it’s just the start for the Dynacargo TBC lineup,” said Brad Feeney, manager of commercial tires for TBC Brands. “SmartWay verification represents an immediate cost savings to our fleet customers because the low-rolling resistance of these tires reduces fuel expense. TBC will continue to develop the Dynacargo line of FE tires.”
Information on the Dynacargo line is on the company’s website.
