Nov. 3, 2005

Taiwanese specialty tire manufacturer Duro Tire & Wheel will expand its coverage to include a new passenger tire line in 2007.

"We feel there's a place for us" in the passenger tire segment, Duro Director of Business Development Bob Graham told at this week's SEMA Show.

"We hope passenger and light truck will be the leaders of our growth."

Duro plans to introduce its GP3000 tire to the North American market. The H-rated product will be available in 16 sizes, according to Graham.
