TBC Takes Sumitomo and Sailun Truck Tires to GATS

Posted on August 16, 2017

TBC Brands LLC is taking its Sumitomo and Sailun-branded truck tires to the Great American Trucking Show (GATS) in Dallas, Texas.

GATS is expected to attract more than 50,000 attendees on Aug. 24 - 26, 2017 to The Kay Bailey Hutchison Convention Center. More than 500 exhibitors will show truck, trailer, engines, components and parts, as well as services designed for the heavy and medium duty truck industry.

“GATS provides the opportunity to gain brand exposure with end-users while connecting with fellow leaders in the industry,” says Aaron Murphy, vice president of commercial tire sales for TBC Corp. “This year, we’re highlighting two new products in our Sailun brand of truck tires, the S668 spread-axle trailer tire and S757 regional drive tire.  Both will be on display alongside other premium Sumitomo and Sailun truck tires.”

GATS attendees will have a chance to win a choice of Sumitomo or Sailun steer, drive or trailer tires through the commercial truck tire giveaway.  Participants can enter the drawing by registering at the Sumitomo and Sailun booth (No. 19037).
