PALM BEACH GARDENS, Fla. (Oct. 9, 2015) — TBC Corp.'s TBC Brands unit is adding a radial OTR tire line to its product portfolio for the first time, a Power King-banded E-3-/L-3 for all-purpose applications.
TBC said the tire, the Power King xERT-3, is designed to deliver “superior traction, longer wear and a smooth ride,” with features such as a large contact area for traction and stability; heavy-duty, non-directional tread design; and a specially formulated cut- and chip-resistant compound.
The tire is available now in sizes 20.5R25 and 23.5R25, with four additional sizes — 15.5R25, 17.5R25, 26.5R25 and 29.5R25 — expected to be added to the line. Additional sizes will be available beginning in October.
“The Power King xERT-3 is the first off-the-road radial tire line offered by TBC Brands,” said Brad Feeney, director of commercial tire programs for TBC.
“It's our goal to provide dealers with a wide range of quality products that will positively impact their bottom line, and we're confident the Power King xERT-3 and the rest of the radial lineup will do just that.”
TBC's OTR offerings up to now have been in the Grader G-2, Loader L-2 and Loader-Dozer L-3 categories, in both Power King and BKT brands.
TBC did not identify the manufacturer or country of origin for the new Power King OTR radials.
