Titan Tire Corp.'s new website helps equipment owners learn more about LSW tire technology.

Titan Tire Corp., a subsidiary of Titan International Inc., has launched a new website — www.LSWadvantage.com. The site acts as a resource for equipment owners to learn about Low Sidewall (LSW) technology tires and wheels for agriculture, construction and mining equipment.

The site includes an overview of LSW technology and its benefits, the history behind the development of the technology, product information, details on buying the right tires, and videos of real-world equipment owners who have benefited from making the switch from standard tires to LSW tires.

“The launch of LSWadvantage.com is the culmination of nearly two decades of research and product development,” says Richard Rose, vice president of sales and marketing at Titan International. “We’ve taken a concept that has proven successful in the automotive market and perfected it for agriculture, construction and mining applications. Now it’s just a matter of educating the public before LSW becomes the new standard for off-the-road markets. That’s why we created LSWadvantage.com — for equipment owners to get the facts.”

LSW tires feature a larger rim diameter and shorter sidewall than comparable standard tires, while maintaining the same inflation pressures, weight load capacities and outside tire diameters, the company notes. LSW benefits include smoother ride, greater stability, faster speeds and improved safety. Titan and Goodyear farm tires are the only brands that offer LSW technology for off-the road markets, says Titan Tire.

You’ve Got Email: It’s Still the Way to Go to Market, Digitally Speaking

Facebook is great for sharing your thoughts and feelings to everyone you have friended, but email is more targeted, especially when used for business. You might say it is even more personal than Facebook because it is designed for interaction between two people or among a small group of people.

M/T Tires are Having a Moment: Consumer Demand Is Blurring the Lines
