The S668 line is offered exclusively in the U.S. It's designed to be a tough wearing tire with contoured shoulders to withstand lateral scrubbing. The tire's durable rubber compound extends service life even in the most demanding high scrub trailer applications, TBC Brands says.

The company says the Sailun S668's design makes it ideal for use on multi-axle and spread-axle trailers.

“We are excited to bring the Sailun S668 regional all position tire to our distribution and dealer partner network,” says Bill Dashiell, senior vice president of the commercial tire division for TBC Brands. “This product is yet another opportunity for us to better serve our customers and provide best-in-class support services and reinforces our commitment to continued growth and excellence.”

The tire is available in these sizes:

11R22.5,

11R24.5,

295/75R22.5, and

255/70R22.5.

Sailun truck bus radial tires feature a six-year warranty for workmanship and materials that includes a no charge replacement within the first 50% of usable tread if it becomes unserviceable due to a defect in design, workmanship or material.  The S668 offers a casing retread warranty for up to two retreads.
