Alliance Tire Group (ATG) has launched a medium radial truck tire brand in the U.S. market called Constellation.

The new Constellation brand has 13 tread patterns—50 SKUs in all—that cover drive, steer and trailer positions and fill long-haul, regional and mixed service applications. Several tread patterns are SmartWay verified.

Alliance says introductions in the coming year will provide even more options to commercial tire dealers and truck owners.

“Constellation truck tires offer world-class quality and outstanding performance for the price,” says John Hull, national truck tire sales manager for Alliance Tire Americas Inc.

“Quality testing showed casing strengths of 150% of DOT standard and endurances at nearly three times the DOT standard. Additionally, Constellation truck tires are warrantied for five-year casing life or two retreads, whichever comes first. These are highly reliable tires, and we have designed and priced them to deliver great return on investment to the owner-operator or fleet owner.”

Constellation truck tires are manufactured in Thailand in a state-of-the-art factory that is DOT-certified and carries certifications for ISO 9001:2008, ISO 14001, OHSAS 18001 and ISO/TS 16949.

Constellation truck tires will be an ideal complement to ATG’s more established Alliance, Galaxy and Primex lines of OTR tires, adds Hull.

“Basically, we’ve taken the industry’s best farm and OTR selection and added a great new truck brand to it,” he says. 

“Constellation gives our dealers a new, highly competitive truck line to offer customers who already understand the performance and value of ATG’s core brands, whether it’s Alliance farm tires, Galaxy tires for skid steer and construction equipment, or Primex forestry tires.

“For the dealer, it’s one-stop shopping with a company they trust, the chance to source container-direct or through one of ATG’s five U.S. warehouses, and a margin they can make a living on,” Hull adds. “For the end user, Constellation delivers excellent performance backed by ATG, great reliability and outstanding value.”
