GARDENA, Calif. — Tireco Inc. is adding a W speed-rated, all-season ultra-high-performance tire, the MS932 XP+, to its Milestar brand.
The MS932 XP+ is M+S rated, comes in 39 performance sizes in 18-, 19-, 20- and 22-inch wheel diameters and is backed by a 40,000-mile limited treadwear warranty, Tireco said.
The new tire "balances a UHP all-season compound with a highly technical tread pattern and an incredible size lineup," Andrew Hoit, Tireco's vice president of sales and marketing, said.
"This line will broaden our consumer reach into additional enthusiast markets, and most importantly it will continue providing more Milestar brand value to our distributors and independent dealers."
The MS932 XP+ features a silica-infused tread compound and an asymmetric tread pattern.
The inner tread pattern includes elements — such as 3D siping — designed to maximize the driving experience during both dry and wet conditions, Tireco said, while the large shoulder blocks on the outer tread help increase cornering stability. Angled siping aids in dispersing water.
Tireco did not disclose pricing information nor identify the line's manufacturer or country of origin.
The MW932 XP+ complements the existing MS932 Sport performance touring tire, which Tireco said is targeted for sedans, sport sedans, crossovers (CUV) and sport coupes.
The Milestar brand now comprises six passenger, six light truck/SUV and three commercial light truck/van lines.
