Sentury: More than 50 sizes for Landsail LS388

Posted on January 15, 2014

Sentury Tire Americas has expanded the number of sizes of the Landsail LS388. The performance touring tire is now available in more than 50 sizes.

“The LS388 is everything you want in a touring tire at an affordable price,” says Max Wee, director of sales. “And since it is manufactured in over 50 sizes, tire dealers can specify the LS388 for a wide range of vehicles from the Ford Focus/Fusion to the Acura TL.”

Sentury says the LS388’s advanced tread design provides these additional features/performance benefits:

Fuel saving tread compound. The LS388’s advanced tread compound reduces rolling resistance, which helps boost your vehicle’s fuel efficiency. Reduces exhaust emissions to help save the environment while saving energy dollars.

Wet grip groove design. Four wide longitudinal grooves channel water, while lateral grooves work to direct it out from under the tire.

High-stability centering rib. The solid rib in the center of the tire ensures straight-line driving stability.

Water dispersing grooves. The pattern of grooves with different thicknesses increases wet road stability by routing water out from under the tire.

Low tread wear shoulder design. The shoulder is integrated with resisting bars to keep the tread blocks stable and protect them from irregular wear. For the same reason, the design also improves high-speed cornering stability.

Quiet-ride pitch alignment. Optimized tread pitch width and alignment quiet resonance and the road noise it creates.

Sentury Tire Americas, headquartered in Miami, Fla., markets Delinte and Landsail tire brands in North, Central and South America. For more information visit, www.senturytireusa.com .

Sentury Tire Americas is a division of Qingdao Sentury Tire Co. Ltd. It recently changed its name from Sentaida International Inc.
