Double Coin Holdings Ltd. and the China Manufacturers Alliance LLC (CMA) introduced their FT125 Super Wide low rolling resistant trailer position tire at the 2011 Specialty Equipment Market Association (SEMA) Show in Las Vegas, Nev.
The FT125 will be the fourth Double Coin addition to the Environmental Protection Agency's SmartWay Verified Technology list. Aaron Murphy, vice president of CMA, says the wide-base tire meets the SmartWay threshold, and has been submitted to the government for certification.
"It's what fleets and OEMs in North America have been asking for," he adds.
And there is another Double Coin wide-base tire on the way. In early 2012, the FD425 Super Wide drive tire will be added to the company's fuel-efficient truck tire line, which includes the FR605, FD405 and the FT105,
The new FT125 is engineered with an advanced tread compound and a low profile design to maximize durability while providing optimal fuel savings. It has a tread depth of 16/32nds-inch.
The tire is available in size 445/50R22.5 and has a maximum carrying capacity of 10,300 pounds (Load Index 161).
