Carlstar Unveils Versa Trail ATR Tire
The Carlstar Group LLC is offering what it calls the first all-purpose radial tire for side-by-sides, utility vehicles and all-terrain vehicles. The Versa Trail ATR tire will be sold as part of the Carlisle brand.
“With the tremendous growth in side-by-side and utility vehicle sales, owners were demanding a tire that was capable of exceptional ride performance and durability across a variety of terrains,” says Rick Goetz, vice president of research and development for The Carlstar Group. “The design enhancements and technology on the Versa Trail tire make this the ideal tire for both work and for play.”
The Carlstar Group’s research and development team experimented by combining all-terrain radial construction (ATR) with a three-quarter-inch, non-directional tread pattern. The result is a new tough-tread rubber technology that improves cut and chip resistance while extending tread. In addition, with a six ply rated carcass to reduce fatigue and a deep rim guard for styled wheels, the Versa Trail tire increases the terrain versatility without compromising the vehicle’s comfort and handling.
The Versa Trail tire is manufactured in Clinton, Tenn., and available in 11 sizes for most side-by-side, utility vehicle and ATV makes and models. To find a local dealer, go to www.carlisletire.com.
