TBC Adds ST719 to Sumitomo Family of Commercial Tires

July 13, 2018

The new Sumitomo ST719 all position tire for metro and regional applications is designed to offer greater wear, stone-ejecting performance and improved retreadability than its predecessors.

TBC Brands LLC says the ST719 uses the proven tread design of the premium steer ST719SE and provides increased tire wear, traction and performance, all at a great value.

The ST719 benefits are driven by advanced design elements including high wear performance tread compounds to improve scrub resistance, and a wider tread width for improved retreadability.

A successor to the ST718 and ST727, the new, field-tested ST719 pattern features stone ejectors to minimize stone drilling and to protect the tire casing.  

The first size is currently available with an additional eight sizes slated for introduction in July 2018. During the first quarter of 2019, when the line is expected to be completed, a total of twelve sizes will be available for metro and regional applications.
