TBC Introduces Sumitomo ST719 All Position Truck Tire

June 12, 2018

The new Sumitomo ST719 All Position Tire from TBC Brands LLC has greater wear, traction and retreadability compared to its predecessors.

A successor to the ST718 and ST727, the ST719 is designed for metro and regional applications. It combines the proven tread design of the ST719SE with the following:

* high wear performance tread compounds that improve scrub resistance;

* a wider tread width for improved retreadability.

* a stone-ejecting design in the tread pattern.

"The Sumitomo ST719 is just one of many new products that will be introduced this year as we continue to expand and enhance the Sumitomo family of commercial tires,” says Bill Dashiell, senior vice president of the Commercial Division for TBC Corp. "We remain committed to offering the most advanced products for performance, durability and safety, while offering dealers a superior profit opportunity and, for fleets and owner operators, an outstanding product with exceptional value."

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 12 sizes will be available for metro and regional applications.
