CYPRESS, Calif. (May 8, 2013) — Nitto Tire U.S.A. Inc. has launched the NT421Q, an all-season ultra-high-performance tire line for the CUV and SUV replacement tire market.
Nitto said the product is available in 31 sizes—with three more coming soon—ranging from 17 to 22 inches in rim diameter.
"The NT421Q is a product created through the fusion of several new technologies," said Alan Ngo, senior staff engineer for Nitto Tire.
"We have incorporated technologies traditionally found only in specific weather- and performance-dedicated tires to create a product that truly thrives in all weather conditions."
Nitto said the NT421Q features include two advanced siping technologies, which increase both grip and tread-block rigidity under acceleration, braking and cornering conditions; and the latest tread compound incorporating new high-grip polymer, wear-oriented polymer, while increased silica delivers enhanced safety performance as well as longevity.
The NT421Q has a treadwear warranty of 75,000 miles for H and V speed-rated sizes, Nitto said, and 60,000 miles for W speed-rated sizes. The NT421Q also comes equipped with Intelligent Maintenance Indicators that provide an early alert for irregular wear and potential issues with the vehicles suspension alignment. UTQG ratings for the NT421Q are 640 A A for H and V speed-rated sizes and 560 A A for W speed-rated sizes.
