LAS VEGAS — Private and import brand distributor Tireco Inc. has added a dozen sizes — including a 40-inch outside-diameter flotation version — to its Patagonia X/T extreme all-terrain tire line.
"This expansion includes aggressive flotation, plus-sized fitments to stay competitive in the Jeep, light truck and off-road markets," Andrew Hoit, vice president of sales and marketing, said.
"Sizes like the 35, 37 and 40 inch show our commitment to these markets and the continued growth and expansion of the entire Patagonia family of light truck and SUV tires."
The size expansion, including the 40x13.5R17LT, will bring the Patagonia X/T product offering to 19 sizes by the first quarter of 2020, with 29 more sizes coming late in the year, Tireco said.
All sizes of the Patagonia X/T feature 18/32nds inch tread depth and are backed with a 40,000-mile limited warranty.
Tireco describes the X/T as a "refined" light-truck tire designed to deliver "bold aggressive looks" and off-road performance normally found in an M/T tire, yet still providing the smooth quiet on-road manners associated with an all-terrain tire.
Other features include: step-down supports on the center blocks to provide enhanced stability and handling; three-ply sidewall for added strength and durability; and a silica-infused cut- and chip-resistant tread compound.
Select sizes are offered with an F load rating to allow for higher load-carrying capacity ideal for today's ¾- and 1-ton truck applications.
