PALM BEACH GARDENS, Fla. — TBC Brands L.L.C. has added an E-3/L-3 category tire, the Xert-3 HD, to its Power King brand, for loaders and articulated trucks.
The OTR tire complements the Power King Xert-3 value line and is designed for mixed operations with a wear-and-cut tread compound and thick under tread for extended life.
The tire features a self-cleaning tread for improved traction in all off-road conditions, especially for municipalities and aggregate operations. A wide, flat footprint coupled with increased tread-to-void ratio improves the stability and tread life of the tire, the company said.
"TBC Brands is excited about the expansion of the Power King lineup with the addition of the Xert-3 HD," Bill Dashiell, senior vice president of the TBC commercial tire division, said. "This OTR tire was designed for dealers seeking a long original tire life with a high-quality casing for excellent retreadability."
The Xert-3 HD s available in four sizes: 20.5R25; 23.5R25; 26.5R25; and 29.5R25.
Power King tires carry a five-year warranty for workmanship and materials that includes a no-charge replacement within the first 12 months with 10 percent or less of the original tread depth used if it becomes unserviceable due to a defect in design, workmanship or material.
