2015 Global Tire Expo, Day 3: M/T, A/T and H/T from Delinte
Sentury Tire Americas is showcasing its Delinte Bandit series line of LT tires at the 2015 Global Tire Expo. The new DX-9 M/T, DX-10 A/T and DX-11 H/T are on display in Booth No. 43225 at the South Hall of the Las Vegas Convention Center.
1. DX-9 Bandit M/T. The mud-terrain tire features an off-road optimized tread. "The best ratio of rubber and void on the tread effectively cleans dirt from the tire under extreme off-road conditions," says the company.
In addition, the tire has varying shoulder block shapes for handling and control; three layers of polyester cord fabric and high-strength steel belts in the sidewall for puncture resistance; and an angled lateral and longitudinal groove structure that promotes drainage.
The DX-9 is available in eight sizes ranging from 33x12.50R15 LT 108Q to 35x12.50R20 LT 121Q.
2. DX-10 Bandit A/T. The all-terrain tire features a five-pattern block design engineered to expel water and rocks and reduce noise, says the company. The zigzag pattern in the middle of the tread reduces noise, while the sloped corner repels rocks and adds to the tire's traction capabilities.
The special "cutting corner" on all borders of the groove pattern "makes it more dimensional, more stereoscopic and more effective at promoting driving stability and comfort," according to Sentury. In addition, the bench-shaped shoulder design "provides excellent earth-grasping action for stable, high-speed turns under dry and wet road conditions."
The DX-10 is not only available in 22 LT sizes, but also four metric sizes: 275/65R17 115V, 285/65R17 116H, 245/70R16 107H and 215/75R15 100T.
3. DX-11 Bandit H/T (pictured). The highway tire's continuous center rib is designed to maintain straight driving stability, while its slant groove on the rib "improves braking performance," say the company. In addition, the consistent middle pattern and uninterrupted closed shoulder design "improves stability for surer control."
The closed shoulder design is engineered to block noise from the middle of the tire.
The DX-11 is available in 14 10-ply LT sizes ranging from LT215/85R16 115/112S to LT285/60R20 125/122S.
The Global Tire Expo is part of the Specialty Equipment Market Association Show (SEMA), which will run through Nov. 6 in Las Vegas.
