A new specialty trailer radial, the Triangle TR653 ST, is available from Triangle Tire USA. The company is backing the TR653 ST with a 60-day total satisfaction guarantee and free one-year road hazard replacement warranty.

"Producing ST tires has been a focus at Triangle for decades, with a commitment to using quality raw materials at one of the world’s most technologically-sophisticated tire plants," says Rick Phillips, vice president of sales for Triangle Tire USA.

The TR653 ST is available in 10 popular 13- to 16-inch sizes with ply ratings ranging from six to 14. It features the following:

* dual-belt construction for added strength and improved towing stability;

* an advanced tread compound for reduced rolling resistance;

* a full nylon cap in selected sizes for durability and a smooth ride;

* an optimized tread design and rounded profile for enhanced shock absorption and load-handling performance.

If consumers are not 100% happy with the product, they can simply bring the tires and original purchase receipt back to the dealer where they bought them within 60 days of purchase for a full refund.

Every new Triangle tire is warranted to be free of defects in workmanship or material for four years. Triangle's additional one-year road hazard warranty on the TR653 ST protects against non-repairable damage such as punctures, snags and cuts.

Triangle Tire USA is the wholly owned subsidiary of Triangle Tyre Co. Ltd., China’s largest privately-owned tire manufacturer. In December 2017, the company announced that Edgecombe County in North Carolina will be the location for its first manufacturing facility in the United States. The plant represents an investment of nearly $580 million by the tire company and will eventually employ up to 800 people when fully operational.
