TBC launches 11 more Arctic Claw sizes

Posted on March 19, 2014

TBC Wholesale is further expanding its Arctic Claw studdable winter tire line for the 2014-2015 winter season.

The company is targeting later model vehicles and "progressive" original equipment fitments with 11 new sizes. That increases the Arctic Claw size lineup to more than 100 sizes.

“The Arctic Claw brand has firmly established itself as an outstanding, high-quality choice for those consumers seeking the perfect balance of superior cold weather performance and a price that doesn’t leave them out in the cold,” says Jon Vance, senior director of product marketing.

“It is our goal with the Arctic Claw program to keep the sizing progressive and aligned with today’s late model vehicle fleet, while at the same time keeping the full line comprehensive and able to service tire dealers as a profitable one stop source for the overwhelming majority of their winter tire demand.”

The 11 new sizes fit a wide variety of late model vehicle types including compacts, sedans, crossovers and full size pickups.

Arctic Claw TXI: 175/65R15, 185/55R15, 205/65R16, 235/60R17, 215/45R17 and 225/55R18.

Arctic Claw XSI: 265/70R18, 245/50R20, 265/50R20, LT285/70R18 and LT265/60R20.

The two LT sizes of the XSI are Load Range E.

The Arctic Claw program is available through TBC Wholesale’s "Core Brand" programs for the replacement tire market. Designed to comprehensively service independent wholesale and retail dealers, these programs feature access to consumer and commercial products through affiliation with TBC Wholesale’s portfolio of proprietary brands; they include Multi-Mile, Eldorado, Cordovan, Sigma, Vanderbilt, Telstar and Jetzon.
