TBC Wholesale expands the Sumitomo brand

Posted on July 21, 2014

TBC Wholesale Group, a brand under the TBC Corp. umbrella, continues the expansion of the Sumitomo brand with the addition of seven sizes to the Touring LS broad line touring program.

These new sizes, branded as Sumitomo Touring LX T/H/V, target key late-model SUV and CUV fitments in 17- and 18-inch, and further enhance both the market coverage and value proposition of the Touring LS/LX line, the company says. With these additions, the line now offers 38 T-, H- and V-rated sizes in 15-inch through 18-inch rim diameters.

The Touring LX carries a 50,000 mile limited tread wear warranty and is also covered by a two-year free roadside assistance program for tire-related issues. Additionally, the Touring LS features free replacement for workmanship and material defects over the life of the tire.

“With the expansion of the Touring LS line into these key SUV and crossover fitments, as well the recent completion of the HTR ENHANCE full line launch, the Sumitomo program offers both tire dealers and consumers a comprehensive 'better-best' touring tire lineup that matches the best in the industry,” says Jon Vance, TBC Wholesale senior director of product marketing.

The seven new Touring LX sizes will be available in September.
