Tireco Inc. has not forgotten the muscle car era of American history. Its latest tire, the Milestar Streetsteel Performance All-Season, is designed for classic American muscle cars, hot rods and classic trucks.
“With present-day cars coming off the assembly line with larger diameter wheels, it is becoming more difficult to find modern 14-inch to 15-inch tires for that period-correct restoration look,” says Andrew Hoit, Tireco’s vice president of sales and marketing. “We’re proud to offer the new Streetsteel, with great sizes, good looks and aggressive performance, all at an amazing Milestar value.”
The tire is available in 10 sizes ranging from P225/70R14 to P295/50R15. The number of sizes covers most staggered combinations of wider, low profile sizes.
The Streetsteel combines the look of the past with the technology of the present.
* It features a checkered flag-inspired sidewall design with solid white lettering, "bringing back the heydays when hot rodding and Detroit muscle ruled the highways and byways of America," according to the company.
* The all-season tread design is contemporary, and "delivers outstanding stability, cornering capability and steering response." The angled siping and grooved pattern and four circumferential grooves result in a wide contact patch for grip and wet performance.
The Milestar Streetsteel is available for factory direct ordering, with warehouse inventory landing throughout the month March.
In addition to Milestar, Tireco also distributes the Nankang, Westlake, Geostar, Geotrac, Nanco and Tracguard brands. For more information on Tireco and its products, visit www.tireco.com.
