LAS VEGAS-Big O Tires Inc. unveiled three new passenger tire lines-all made by the Kelly-Springfield Tire Co.-during the franchiser's annual dealer convention, held Feb. 12-15 in Las Vegas. The Euro HXP, an all-season, performance touring tire, features an asymmetrical tread design for a quieter, smoother ride. Three distinct tread zones offer dependable traction, ride, wear distribution and handling, the company said.
The M+S-rated touring tire carries an H speed rating and a UTQG rating of 380 AA. It will be available in eight 60- and two 65-series sizes.
Some sizes will be available in April, Big O said, while the larger 60-series sizes will become available between June and August.
According to the company, its all-season Euro DXP performance line-with an H or V speed rating, depending on the size-features a directional tread for wet and dry traction and improved handling and cornering power.
Also M+S-rated, the DXP carries a UTQG rating of 340 AA. It will be available to Big O dealers in December in six 50- and two 55-series sizes, and one 60-series size.
Big O's Legacy Tour Plus, a P-metric all-season radial, features dual aqua channels for improved wet traction and resistance to hydroplaning.
The tire carries an S speed rating, an M+S rating and a UTQG rating of 560 AB.
It will be available between April and May in two 60-, two 65- and eight 70-series sizes.
