2015 Global Tire Expo, Day 4: Supermax Truck Tires
Horizon Tire Inc. is marketing its first private brand truck tire line. Introduced at the 2015 Global Tire Expo, the Supermax line features three premium radial medium truck tires that are SmartWay-certified.
The Supermax HD1, HF1 and HT1 are produced in China. They are available in six SKUs: 11R22.5 LRG and H; 11R24.5 LRG and H; and two LRG low-profile sizes (295/75R22.5 and 285/75R24.5).
1. Supermax HD1. The premium closed-shoulder drive tire is designed to provide "excellent traction and great wear," according to the company.
2. Supermax HF1. The premium regional and all-position steer tire features a five-rib design for even wear and durability. Size 255/70R22.5 LRH will be available in 2016.
3. Supermax HT1. The premium trailer tire's tread is optimized for "superior stability, excellent lateral traction and resistance to irregular wear," says Horizon. It features a shallow tread.
All three tires are backed by two-retread casing warranties. Horizon said it also is working on a Supermax wide-base tire.
The Global Tire Expo is part of the Specialty Equipment Market Association (SEMA) Show, which was held in Las Vegas Nov. 3-6.
