Meet Prinx: the New Truck Tire Brand at NTW
National Tire Wholesale (NTW) customers will have exclusive access to a new brand of medium truck tires in North America. TBC Brands LLC says the Prinx lineup features seven application types.
The Prinx lineup includes:
the AR602, a regional steer all position tire line, which the company says offers long wear and excellent grip;
the TH107, a multi-axle decoupling groove trailer tire line for line-haul or regional use;
the DH106 was produced with a closed shoulder design for high-speed performance and even wear for line-haul and regional trucks;
the open shoulder drive tire line, the DR601, is suitable for regional applications where additional traction is needed;
AM210 is a mixed service all-position tire for on- and off-road usage with its cut and chip-resistant compound;
the AM211’s wide base is suitable for on- and off-road mixed service conditions and all wheel positions; and
for dump trucks, logging trucks or concrete mixing trucks, there is the DM212 tire with traction on- and off-highway.
“We’re excited about the addition of this new brand and the expansion of our program offering,” said Bill Dashiell, senior vice president of the commercial tire division for TBC Brands. “With applications in line haul, regional and mixed service, as well as multiple axle positions within each application, Prinx Tires reinforces our commitment to continued growth.”
Prinx tires feature a five-year warranty for workmanship and materials that includes a no charge replacement within the first 2/32nd or twelve months from date of purchase, whichever comes first, due to a defect in design, workmanship, or material. A five-year radial casing warranty is also provided featuring a retread warranty for up to two retreads and a casing allowance.
“We’re thrilled to be the sole distributor of Prinx medium radial truck tires in the U.S.,” said Rodger Smith, president and chief operations officer of NTW. “This lineup will provide our customers high quality products and improved availability all at a competitive price.”
