Nitto Enters Side-by-Side Market
Nitto Tire U.S.A. Inc. unveiled its first tire for side-by-side (SxS) vehicles, the Trail Grappler SxS, at the 2018 Specialty Equipment Market Association (SEMA) show.
Product development engineer Ryan Parszik says the new tire is a smaller version of Nitto’s race K-spec tire. The first size for the Trail Grappler SxS is 30 x 9.50 R15LT. It will be available in the first quarter of 2019.
The Nitto booth also showcased the Trail Grappler MT tire in a new size: 40 x 15.50 R26LT. Customers were asking for the Trail Grappler MT in a 26-inch rim diameter, according to Parszik. The new size becomes available in early 2019, to bring the Trailer Grappler MT offering to 15-inch up to 26-inch rim diameters with a maximum overall diameter of 40 inches.
In addition, Nitto also introduced the NT420V tire in 20-, 22- and 24-inch sizes for luxury sport utility vehicles (SUVs). Features include a unique tread design with serrated blocks to boost the aesthetics of show vehicles. The NT420V will be released in early 2019. It replaces the NT420S.
