Sumitomo truck tires provide TBC Wholesale customers an optimized solution for the trucking industry, according to the company. Its tires are known for outstanding performance on all terrains in the toughest applications.

TBC also introduced the Sailun medium truck tire line.

Sailun provides a high value proposition with a combination of technology, innovation, and quality at a competitive price point, according to TBC.

“Sailun Medium Truck tires target the mid-value segment, combining affordable pricing with excellent performance,” says Bill Dashiell, TBC Wholesale vice president of product marketing.

“Sailun brings proven quality and retreadability in a value price point and offers a complete line of commercial truck tires with 72 sizes, including Smartway-verified products.”

Dynacargo

In addition, TBC announced the new Dynacargo medium truck line.

The Dynacargo line is available in the most popular sizes and market applications in 52 sizes.

“Dynacargo, along with Sailun and Sumitomo, allows TBC to offer tire distributors a true one stop source capturing the price-driven buyer, the value-oriented customer, and even those demanding an optimized tire solution,” says Dashiell.
