“The Double Coin REM-8 is among the very select few that can achieve this high-speed rating with the necessary carrying capacity. Our ability to produce and supply these tires to both the OEMs and replacement market dealers show the industry that we’re technologically advanced as a manufacturer and dedicated to the constant evolution of products.”
