Double Coin Holdings Ltd. and its American subsidiary, China Manufacturers Alliance LLC (CMA), have added the Duraturn brand of consumer and commercial tires.
Duraturn tire models include Mozzo, Travia and ST Radial in the consumer tire segment and a full line of TBR tires.
“Duraturn products have the pedigree of developing diverse and comprehensive lines of high quality, competitively priced tires for both dealers and end-users,” says Aaron Murphy, vice president of CMA. “We are very pleased to add the brand to the CMA family, and we anticipate that our dealers will be very pleased by its diverse product offerings.”
Mozzo is Duraturn’s line of all-season high performance and touring tires currently with 26 sizes in T, H, V and W ratings. The Mozzo STX sport truck line will include sizes up to 26-inch rim diameters.
CMA says the Travia line of LT/SUV tires will be introduced in the near future with highway, all terrain and mud terrain models. Duraturn ST Radial tires are designed for recreational trailer applications.
CMA plans to introduce Duraturn winter tires in 2015.
On the commercial side, the TBR line is available in all applications with over 85 SKUs available including models in steer, drive, trailer, and mixed service tires. Several models are EPA Smartway-verified for low rolling resistance applications.
Ken Coltrane, vice president of consumer tires for CMA, says the Duratran brand meets the needs of independent dealers with modern tread designs and popular sizes.
“As the program continues to develop over the next year, it will grow to include more than 200 SKUs across multiple product lines that can all be mixed for easier ordering,” he says.
