Sentury Tire says the new Groundspeed Voyager MT is engineered to tackle the toughest trails while providing rugged style and reliability for off-road enthusiasts.

Sentury Tire North America has added the Voyager MT to its Groundspeed line of passenger vehicle, SUV, CUV and light truck tires.

The Voyager MT will debut in the Sentury Tire North America exhibit during the 2017 Specialty Equipment Market Association (SEMA) show in Las Vegas, Nev., Oct. 31 - Nov. 3, 2017.

The company says the Voyager MT is designed and engineered to confidently churn through mud, over rocks and other off-road challenges. An exclusive rubber compound ensures the tire delivers superior performance on the road to and from the trail.

The new GroundSpeed Voyager MT features a unique “self-cleaning” design that combines a balanced void ratio and special corner cut edges to effectively remove mud and dirt from the tread for continuous off-road traction and smooth on-road handling. Other features are:

* deep center sipes for excellent traction and reduced hydroplaning risk on wet or slick, snow-covered roads;

* deep-cut shoulder blocks with alternating cut-outs to reduce noise and to provide solid grip in muddy, sandy or snowy terrain, along with increased all-around off-road traction;

* aggressive wide-block "Max Traction" tread design for extreme mud and rock crawling, while retaining civil on-road driving performance; and

* an equally aggressive sidewall design for preventing damage and delivering optimum grip during deep mud motoring and rock climbing.

“The new Voyager MT adds a rugged new dimension to our GroundSpeed tire portfolio,” says Mike Perkins, vice president, sales and marketing for Sentury Tire North America.

“Our distributor and dealer partners can now confidently meet the full range of their customers’ tire preferences, including purpose-engineered tires for die-hard mudders and off-road adventure fans.”

The Voyager MT is is available in a wide range of sizes and backed by Sentury Tire’s manufacturer warranty.

The GroundSpeed line is currently manufactured at Sentury Tire’s world-class Thailand operation. Production will move to the new U.S. plant and R & D Center in LaGrange, Ga., in 2019, with a factory groundbreaking scheduled for early 2018.

Sentury Tire North America’s Georgia facility will include a smart-technology factory with an annual capacity of 12 million units, along with on-site proving grounds, research and development, and extensive warehousing and distribution operations.

Sentury Tire North America is a U.S. based subsidiary of Qingdao Sentury Tire Co., a global automotive and aircraft tire manufacturer serving over 150 markets around the world, including the United States and Canada.
