MIAMI — Sentury Tire USA has added a Delinte-brand "rough terrain" tire, the DX-12 Bandit R/T, to its North American portfolio, targeted at drivers who want a combination of off-road performance and on-road comfort.
"This new rough terrain tire has large, aggressive tread blocks with ample grooves for off-road mud, dirt and snow grip," Maxwell Wee, executive vice president of Sentury Tire USA, said.
In order to meet the market demand for higher load-carrying capacity sizes for the latest heavy-duty light trucks, the Delinte DX-12 is available in F load-rated sizes, Sentury said.
The DX-12 Bandit R/T Rough Terrain Tire offers these features/benefits:
- Puncture-guard toughness. Three tough layers of polyester cord fabric and high-strength steel belts guard against rock and debris punctures;
- Durable sidewall. Sidewall design provides side-impact protection and improved traction;
- Wetland-optimized grooves. Angled lateral and longitudinal groove structure promotes better drainage for improved braking and handling on soggy ground; and
- Stable shoulder. The varying shapes of the shoulder blocks are optimized for improved handling and control on unpaved roads.
The Delinte DX-12 Bandit R/T is available in 17 sizes, six of which are 12-ply LRF, covering sizes ranging from 16- to 24-inch rim diameters.
