LAKE VILLA, Ill. (May 23, 2013) — Atturo Tire Corp. continues to develop the niche SUV/4X4 market with the addition of eight sizes.
The company said it has added four new sizes each in its AZ800 performance tire and Trail Blade Mud Terrain lines. New sizes for the AZ800 line are: 235/65R17, 255/60R17, 285/60R18 and 275/55R20—all produced in Taiwan.
"We started the AZ800 range with an initial focus on larger diameter sizes," said Michael Mathis, vice president of Atturo Tire."However, we have added some targeted OE sizes with great success. These additional four sizes help address those OE fitments for our domestic and global distributors."
The Trail Blade M/T started production with eight sizes primarily for aftermarket fitments and OE upgrades, Atturo said. With the four new sizes—LT265/75R16, LT285/75R16, LT265/70R17 and LT275/65R18—there are now direct OE replacements for many truck owners who want the ultra-aggressive look and performance of the Trail Blade M/T without changing their wheels or suspension for larger tires, Atturo said. The Trail Blade M/T is produced in Thailand.
Atturo said production in these new sizes has already begun.
