DALLAS — Tread rubber supplier Pre-Q Galgo Corp. has unveiled an extreme winter tread for the U.S. and Canadian market.
The new Winter Mileage Performance (WMP) tread was developed to withstand extreme temperatures down to negative-80 degrees Fahrenheit. It is Three-Peak Mountain Snow Flake (3PMSF) certified and received a rating of "excellent" for traction, the company said.
The interlocking sipe design and a stable block pattern provide for extreme traction, mileage, even wear and improved handling, Pre-Q Galgo said.
WMP is available in the following widths and tread depths: 8 5/8 inches (220mm) 27.5/32nds; 9 inches (230mm) 27.5/32nds; 9 1/2 inches (240mm) 27.5/32; 9 7/8 inches (250mm) 27.5/32nds; 10 1/4 inches (260mm) 27.5/32; 10 5/8 inches (270mm) 27.5/32nds; and 11 inches (280mm) 25/32nds.
