MONROVIA, Calif. — China Manufacturers Alliance L.L.C.(CMA) is adding a wide-base trailer-position tire, the FT125+, to its Double Coin-brand truck tire portfolio after completing a testing program on roads throughout the U.S. and Canada.
The new tire, available in one size — 445/50R22.5 — features groove-bottom protection that resists stone penetration and durable casing design to help improve puncture resistance, CMA said.
The new tire is part of CMA's "OptiGreen" SmartWay-verified, low rolling resistance tire lineup. It complements two other trailer tires, the FT105 and FT115, in the Double Coin truck tire program.
Tim Phillips, vice president of marketing and operations for CMA, noted the company expects the FT125+ to perform well in tanker-truck trailer applications.
Monrovia-based CMA is a subisidiary of China's Shanghai Huayi Group Corp. Ltd.
