Nexen Rolls Out Next-Gen Roadian All-Terrain Tire
Nexen Tire America Inc. has launched the Roadian ATX, the company's next-generation all-terrain tire. The product is available in 63 sizes, fitting wheels from 15 inches to 22 inches in diameter.
Additional sizes will be available later this year.
The Roadian ATX "makes use of next-generation tread technology specifically designed to provide better grip during the wear process," say Nexen officials.
"Compared to the company’s earlier all-terrain tire offerings, Roadian ATX boasts increased performance in four of the most important categories to consumers: durability, wet traction, snow traction and mileage.
"The Roadian ATX also features a reinforced three-ply sidewall construction on most LT sizes" for longer service life and increased durability under heavy loads.
"Moreover, increased sidewall rigidity also enhances vehicle stability while cornering under load and heavy-towing scenarios."
The 3-Peak Mountain Snowflake-certified tire also features a dual-sidewall design and is available in S, T and H speed ratings.
“There is a large segment of drivers who need an all-terrain tire that provides exceptional off-road capabilities without the aggressive nature of a mud-terrain tire and that became the driving force behind the Roadian ATX,” says Brian YoonSeok Han, CEO of Nexen Tire America, Inc.
"We designed an extremely capable all-terrain tire that can take drivers anywhere around the world and still retain the handling, quietness and comfort of an everyday on-road tire. These features - and more - give our dealers the ability to offer the Roadian ATX with confidence knowing it's backed by a 65,000-mile treadwear mileage warranty.”
