Tireco Adds to Milestar Patagonia Tire Line
Tireco Inc. has added 12 sizes to its Milestar Patagonia X/T Xtreme all-terrain tire line including 40X13.5R17LT high flotation.
The X/T is a light truck tire designed to deliver the bold aggressive looks and tough off-road performance normally found in an M/T tire, yet still provide the smooth, quiet on-road manners associated with an all-terrain tire.
The Patagonia X/T’s rugged tread blocks feature step-down supports on the center blocks for enhanced stability and handling. All sizes feature a 3-ply sidewall for added strength and durability, and a silica-infused cut- and chip-resistant tread compound, to work with stone and mud ejectors to tackle the toughest off-road conditions.
Additionally, select sizes are offered with an F load rating to allow for higher load carrying capacity ideal for today’s ¾-ton and 1-ton truck applications.
The X/T is engineered for a quiet ride utilizing a variable pitch tread pattern, while the variable depth siping provides performance consistency throughout the entire life of the tire.
A total of 19 sizes will be available in Q1 2020 with another 29 sizes coming in late 2020. All sizes of the Patagonia X/T feature 18/32-inch tread depth and are backed with a 40,000-mile limited warranty.
“This expansion includes aggressive flotation, plus-sized fitments to stay competitive in the Jeep, light truck and off-road markets,” says Andrew Hoit, Tireco’s vice president of sales and marketing. “Sizes like the 35-inch, 37-inch, and 40-inch show our commitment to these markets and the continued growth and expansion of the entire Patagonia family of light truck and SUV tires.”
Popular sizes available are: LT285/70R17 E/10, 35X12.50R17LT D/8, 37X12.50R17LT D/8, LT305/55R20 F/12, 37X12.50R20LT F/12, and 40X13.5R17LT D/8.
