Omni United (S) Pte. Ltd. is showcasing two new tires at the 2015 Global Tire Expo: The Timberland A/T and the Radar Renegade R7 M/T. The tires will be on display at Booth No. 43209 in the South Hall of the Las Vegas Convention Center.

A $150,000 customized 2015 Urban Warrior Land Rover Defender -- sporting a set of Timberland A/T 275/55R20 tires mounted on custom 20-inch Kahn Design wheels – will feature the Timberland logo on the vehicle’s front quarter panels and hood. Sean Hyland Motorsports (Booth No. 33291) was responsible for the modifications.

The Timberland A/T is available in 30 sizes for light trucks and SUVs. It features an aggressive on-road tread pattern. It is backed by a 50,000-mile limited tread wear warranty.

It also complements the Timberland Cross. Omni United recently added 15 sizes to the Cross lineup. Designed for CUVs, the Cross is available in 35 sizes. Both product lines are built in the U.S.

Omni United also will introduce the Renegade R7 M/T at the exposition. It is inspired by the company’s success in off-road racing.

“Once again, Omni United will use SEMA as the platform to make our company’s most important innovation announcements to the industry,” says John Soule, vice president of marketing and licensed brands. “There is no better way for us to reach the target audience for our new product information, or to engage with our North American and global customers.”

The Global Tire Expo is part of the Specialty Equipment Market Association Show (SEMA), which will run through Nov. 6 in Las Vegas.

Timberland tires are designed and created for a second life. When the tread wears out, the tire is recycled into Timberland shoes. For more information, check out these links:
