Tireco Inc. reports the Nankang NK Sport light truck tire line has been expanded with the Conqueror M/T-1.
This bold, aggressive mud/terrain tire is engineered to tackle severe on- and off-road environments. It was developed from the ground-up to expand the NK Sport family of products into a formidable truck and Jeep tire capable of extreme, outdoor recreational conditions, the company notes.
The Conqueror M/T-1 features an all-new enhanced, modern tread compound for ultimate off-road traction while a variable pitch tread pattern allows for a quiet on-road ride. Its aggressive tread design features large, offset tread blocks for optimum all-weather traction, while variable depth siping provides performance consistency throughout the life of the tire. Alternating shoulder grooves work to evacuate mud and debris while mud-and-stone ejectors protect against stone retention and drilling. Many sizes feature a 3-ply sidewall to provide added strength for impact protection, while the aggressive upper sidewall enhances off-road traction and bite, yet protects from rocks and mountainous terrains.
The initial launch will feature 25 popular OE replacement and aftermarket sizes in 15- to 20-inch wheel diameters, including flotation sizes up to 35 inches tall. It is available with outlined-white-letter. All sizes of the Conqueror M/T-1 are Q-speed rated and feature 19-20/32-inch tread depth.
“Expanding the Nankang product lineup is a priority for us,” says Andrew Hoit, Tireco’s vice president of sales and marketing. “We’re committed to providing our dealer network a broad, diverse product offering for both the daily driver and enthusiasts markets; and the Conqueror M/T-1 is a true testament to this.”
Popular sizes available include 35X12.50R15LT, LT265/75R16, LT285/70R17, 35X12.50R17LT and 35X12.50R20LT.
