LAS VEGAS — YC Rubber Co. (North America) L.L.C., the U.S. distributor of Duraturn-brand tires, is extending the warranty on Duraturn truck/bus tires to six years and two retreads. The move expands on the previous warranty by one year and one retread.
The announcement was made during the recent Specialty Equipment Market Association Show in Las Vegas.
Duraturn's TBR lineup includes 17 products for line haul, regional and mixed service applications.
YC Rubber Vice President Ken Coltrane said the tires have earned "a strong reputation for quality with fleets and owner operators," and said the warranty extension "better reflects the quality reputation of Duraturn TBR tires."
Duraturn's SmartWay-verified DD10 drive tire features an open shoulder tread design that the company said provides outstanding traction, with a 25/32" original tread depth that it said provides excellent mileage.
