PALM BEACH GARDENS, Fla.—TBC Corp.'s TBC Brands unit is adding a radial off-the-road tire line to its product portfolio for the first time, a Power King-banded E-3-/L-3 for all-purpose applications.
TBC said the tire, the Power King xERT-3, is designed to deliver superior traction, longer wear and a smooth ride. It includes features like a large contact area for traction and stability; heavy-duty, non-directional tread design; and a specially formulated cut- and chip-resistant compound.
The tire is available in sizes 20.5R25 and 23.5R25, with four additional sizes—15.5R25, 17.5R25, 26.5R25 and 29.5R25—expected to be added to the line. Additional sizes will be available beginning in October.
“The Power King xERT-3 is the first off-the-road radial tire line offered by TBC Brands,” said Brad Feeney, director of commercial tire programs for TBC.
“It's our goal to provide dealers with a wide range of quality products that will positively impact their bottom line, and we're confident the Power King xERT-3 and the rest of the radial lineup will do just that.”
TBC's OTR offerings up to now have been in the Grader G-2, Loader L-2 and Loader-Dozer L-3 categories, in both Power King and BKT brands.
TBC did not identify the manufacturer or country of origin for the new Power King OTR radials.
