The TBC booth (No. 14200) will feature both Sumitomo and Sailun branded truck tires, and MATS attendees will have an opportunity to win their choice of Sumitomo or Sailun steer, drive or trailer tires through the Commercial Truck Tire Giveaway.  Participants can enter at the TBC booth.

The ST719SE steer position, Smartway-Verified tire is designed for local and regional operations that require superior mileage, durable casings and a lower cost per mile. The ST719SE is designed with wide shoulders that improve wear, reinforced sidewalls and stone ejectors to promote retreadability and 21/32nds of original tread depth for longer mileage.

“We’re excited to unveil another great product development at MATS this year,” says Aaron Murphy, vice president of commercial truck tire sales. "The ST719SE is again a new product performing beyond our expectations and is a tribute to Sumitomo Rubber Industries’ proprietary 4D Nano technology advances. We expect to roll out more products in the near future!”

The introduction of the ST719SE comes on the heels of the recent release of the ST788SE and ST948SE tires.
