Prinx Adds Last-Mile Delivery Tire to Fortune Lineup
Prinx Chengshan Tire North America Inc. has introduced the Fortune Tormenta LMD for last-mile delivery fleets. The tire is available now in size 235/65R16C. Additional sizes will begin shipping during the first quarter of 2023.
They include 185/60R15C, 195/75R16C, 225/75R16C, LT215/85R16, LT225/75R16, LT245/75R16, LT245/70R17 and LT245/75R17.
“Beyond these sizes, we are looking at an additional range of sizes that would be part of phase two of this tire’s development towards the end of 2023,” says Ken Coltrane, vice president of marketing and product development for Prinx Chengshan Tire North America.
"With nine sizes being available, it makes it very easy to build container loads of just the Fortune Tormenta LMD.”
Key features of the new tire include all-weather capability with 3-Peak Mountain Snowflake certification; four central grooves for excellent water evacuation; high-depth sipes with multiple biting edges for improved driving safety in various road conditions; and strengthened sidewall construction for improved load capability and durability against curb damage.
"While the Tormenta LMD was developed to cater to the last mile delivery fleet with C-type commercial tire sizes, the inclusion of popular LT sizes that are used on contractor pickups and vans makes the line even more attractive to the independent dealer who specializes in this type of business," say Prinx officials.
"Fortune Tires focuses on manufacturing quality tires that drivers can have confidence in, whether they’re driving their family around town or a fully loaded tractor-trailer."
Parent company Prinx "also strives for uniformity and ensures every tire follows the same high standards of performance and craftsmanship."
