Carlstar unveils a new construction tire

April 29, 2015

The Carlstar Group LLC has launched the Carlisle Ultra Guard MX, a construction tire for mixed surface use.

Like the existing Ultra Guard series, the Ultra Guard MX is designed for severe duty applications. However, the company says its newest construction tire provides unique features specifically designed for mixed surface applications.

The quality construction of the Ultra Guard MX includes a premium chip/chunk-resistant compound, reinforced sidewall and rim guard technology to protect against worksite debris, according to Carlstar.

It also features unique shoulder grips to increase bite in soft conditions. The robust center lugs and large contact area of the footprint provide stability, while the deep tread depth offers extended wear and puncture resistance.

“After hundreds of hours of field testing through mud and on rock, we have received tremendous feedback regarding the tire’s durability and outstanding performance in mixed-use applications,” says Adam Brown, product marketing manager.

The Ultra Guard MX is available in three non-directional sizes and offered in 10 and 14 ply ratings.
