Tireco Inc. has added a light truck tire to the Milestar brand. The new Grantland AP tire is available in 25 sizes.

Tireco says the versatile Grantland AP tire is engineered to provide a dependable low-maintenance driving experience for full size pick-ups and sport utility vehicles.  

The Grantland AP uses the latest in silica-enriched, tire compound technology for enhanced traction and improved tread wear. The tread pattern incorporates optimized angled grooves and directional siping for enhanced wet-weather handling, while wide circumferential ribs fused with lateral siping, improve stability and overall grip. The integrated stone ejectors inside the grooves protect against stone retention and drilling during heavier duty usage.

The Grantland AP tire is designed for the long highway hauls or any level of use. It is available with Q and T speed ratings, in 15- to 20-inch sizes with P-metric and LT applications. It launches with 25 popular original equipment and aftermarket sizes, and is backed by a 60,000-mile limited tread wear warranty.

“We’re excited to add this amazing workhorse, to help broaden our product offering,” says Andrew Hoit, Tireco’s vice president of sales and marketing. “I believe our consumers will be pleased with the performance characteristics of the Grantland AP while providing their customers with a great value.”
