New UHP tire may be imported from Turkey

Turkish tire manufacturer Petlas Tire Corp. is producing a new ultra-high performance tire, the PT 741 Velox Sport.

Designed for drivers "who enjoy performance rides," according to the company, the tire features an asymmetrical tread pattern. It is engineered to provide "not only noticeable energy savings, but also excellent handling on both wet and dry surfaces."

The long-wearing PT 741 Velox Sport is available outside the United States in 29 16- through 19-inch sizes, with aspect ratios ranging from 35 to 45.

The tire is not yet available domestically. The company says it is planning to bring passenger tires to the U.S. in 2013.
