Firestone M/T 2 Tire Designed for Maximum Traction

M-Firestone-0076-LR-1.jpgThe new Firestone Destination M/T2 tire from Bridgestone Americas Inc. is designed to provide maximum traction for 4×4 vehicles, pickup trucks and SUVs in off-road conditions.

The new tire replaces the Firestone Destination M/T, which came out in 2002. Bridgestone says the new M/T2 tire “does everything better” than its predecessor. Advances in tire technology, especially compounding, are responsible for improvements in off-road, snow and wet performance.

A new tread compound, three-ply sidewall construction and more aggressive upper sidewall design give the Destination M/T2 increased traction in mud and offer stronger resistance to chips and tears. Stone and mud rejectors help keep the tread clear of debris.

The Firestone Destination M/T2 tire has 20% more biting edges than the previous generation tire for better grip on slick, wet surfaces and in snow conditions. The company also added sipes for better snow traction capability compared to the prior tire. The Firestone Destination M/T2 tire is studdable.

Product manager Justin Hayes told Modern Tire Dealer that there are two types of buyers of the new Firestone Destination M/T2 tire. “There’s one who really cares about the performance, he’s going to take his truck or Jeep off road and he wants the traction capability,” he says.

“For that type of customer we’ve significantly improved the off-road performance capabilities versus the current generation Destination M/T on dry rocks, wet rocks, creeks, mud and sand. In all of these types of off-road conditions, the traction capabilities of the Destination M/T2 have been improved versus the predecessor product.”

Hayes says the other type of driver who would purchase an M/T tire primarily cares about the looks of the product. “For this type of driver the Destination M/T2 has a much more aggressive look and feel than the previous generation product. The tread area has been totally redesigned, the off shoulder area has more rubber and a more aggressive protruding image for the driver who wants the tire to look aggressive.”

The Firestone Destination M/T2 tire is available in 29 sizes for 15- to 22-inch wheels. The tires will be delivered to stores in July 2017.

“The Firestone Destination M/T2 tire is the ultimate tire for adventure-seekers looking to get the most performance out of their truck or Jeep,” says Erik Seidel, president, consumer replacement tire sales, U.S. and Canada, Bridgestone Americas Tire Operations.

“Overlanders and weekend warriors expect their tires to perform across a wide range of intense conditions, and the Destination M/T2 delivers an incredible off-road driving experience. We built a tough tire that attacks the terrain.”

Titan Tire Unveils Its First Radial ATV Tire

TitanGrizzBrandsLogoTitan International Inc. is adding a radial ATV tire to its Mud Monster ATV tire lineup. Available in size 30x10R14, it’s the first radial ATV tire by Titan. It’s also the largest tire in the Mud Monster family.

“There’s a growing customer demand for high-quality, American-made tires that can cater to a wide range of ATV and UTV applications,” says Steve Strauss, general manager at Titan. “Our newest Mud Monster tire is the first radial ATV tire we offer, making it especially suited for very muddy and rocky terrain and allowing our customers greater freedom and stability for their off-roading adventures.”

The Mud Monster tread is designed to offer maximum bite thanks to its deep, interlocking lugs. Titan says the tire’s rounded profile maintains steering characteristics usually associated with a less aggressive tread design.

Nitto Tire Crowned at Off Road Competition

trail grappler mt_t

Team Nitto drivers Shannon Campbell, Jason Scherer and Erik Miller fight through the rain and mud to sweep the podium at the 2016 Nitto Nationals Ultra4 MetalCloak NorCal Stampede.

Nitto Tire U.S.A. Inc. has swept the podium at the MetalCloak Stampede Ultra4 off-road race for the second year in a row thanks to the talents of the Team Nitto drivers and the incredible traction afforded by their Trail Grappler M/T tires. This occasion also marks the second consecutive Ultra4 Nationals race in which Team Nitto has swept the podium; the last being the Reno Nationals at the end of the 2015 season. This incredible victory was achieved despite extremely uncooperative weather causing traction issues and mechanical failures for many other teams.

The Ultra4 4400 Unlimited class was swept by Team Nitto drivers Shannon Campbell, Jason Scherer and Erik Miller.

Campbell is one of off-road racing’s most winning drivers, a two-time King of the Hammers winner (2008 and 2011), and was recently inducted into the Off-Road Motorsports Hall of Fame.

Jason Scherer is a former King of the Hammers champion (2009) and has since scored numerous Ultra4 wins, consistently finishing near the top of the field.

Erik Miller is also a two-time King of the Hammers champion, having won the signature event of the Ultra4 series in 2012 and 2016, and was also second in points during the 2014 Ultra4 National Championships.

“The NorCal Stampede is always an incredibly challenging event for any driver and with the inclement weather this year, it required some incredible talent from our drivers and an equally incredible tire to bring home the win,” said Chris Corbett, Nitto Tire U.S.A.’s Events and Motorsports Manager. “The mud on the course really illustrated the capabilities of our Trail Grappler tire and the 1-2-3 finish for Team Nitto showed why the Trail Grappler continues to be the choice of champions.”

The next race of the 2016 Ultra4 season will take place on May 6, 2016 at Hot Springs ORV Park in Hot Springs, Arkansas.

Cooper Highlights Product Line at SEMA Show

13096

Cooper Tire’s booth at the SEMA Show/Global Tire Expo (#43019) features the company’s top tires, including the new Discoverer STT Pro and Discoverer SRX, the CS5 Touring tire, and the new CS1 passenger tire exclusive to Mexico and Latin America.

The Discoverer STT Pro provides superior reliability and durability with Armor-Tek3 construction that adds strength to the sidewall and tread area, and mud release dimples and scoops that prevent build-up and improve traction in super sloppy conditions, according to Cooper.

With a recently expanded size range, the Discoverer SRX was designed to meet the unique needs of SUVs and CUVs. The tire provides dependable all-season highway traction, superior handling and a quiet, comfortable ride, said Cooper. Delivering road surface grip for traction in wet weather conditions and light snow, the SRX also carries a 65,000-mi. treadwear protection warranty and a 45-day road test guarantee.

The CS5 Touring delivers all-season performance targeted for drivers of modern sedans and SUVs. Enhanced tread compound, combined with an asymmetric tread design, patented Stabiledge technology and specially developed 3D Micro-Gauge sipes allow the CS5 to deliver a crisp steering response, controlled handling around corners and superior wet handling, shortening stopping distance and lowering rolling resistance for improved fuel mileage, according to the tiremaker. The CS5 gives consumers a convenient way to gauge the amount of wear on the tread of their tires with Cooper’s Wear Square visual tread wear indicator, which transitions between five stages, beginning with a full square on new tires and ending with an exclamation point when the tread reaches 2/32s of an inch, indicating it’s time to replace the tire. CS5 Touring T-speed rated sizes offer an 80,000-mi. premium limited warranty; H- and V-rated sizes have a 60,000-mi. warranty; and W-rated touring sizes come with a 50,000-mi. warranty, in addition to a 45-day road test guarantee.

The CS1 is a new all-season passenger tire that will be sold exclusively in Mexico and Latin America beginning in the first quarter of 2016. The tire features a solid shoulder to provide cornering stability, four extra-wide circumferential grooves to resist hydroplaning, optimal siping, and a solid center rib for consistent on-center feel and steering response.

Michelin’s New Light Truck Tire the Defender LTX

The newest tire in Michelin North America Inc.’s fleet isn’t designed to be an original equipment star. But that’s not to say the tire manufacturer isn’t expecting big things from the Defender LTX M/S. Michelin believes the Defender LTX is destined to become its top selling light truck tire — in part because it’s replacing the company’s current No. 1 LT tire.
M-Michelin-Defender-LTX-45-leftLR-1
The Defender LTX is a light truck product that comes from melding the long-lasting traits of Michelin’s successful three-year-old Defender passenger line with its most popular light truck tire, the LTX M/S2. Using the tread pattern and depth of the LTX M/S2, amping it up with Evertread compounding, and ensuring the long-lasting wear of the Defender line, the new Defender LTX offers the best of all worlds.

Michelin is marketing the Defender LTX as the answer to that complaint with two key words: “Stronger. Longer.” Peters says the company’s test data shows the new compound alone extends this tire’s life by 10% compared to the LTX M/S2.

The LT sizes carry a 50,000-mile warranty, and that’s less coverage than the current LTX M/S2 offers. Roll out of the first 45 sizes of the Defender LTX begins Aug. 1 and will continue through November in the United States. The next 26 sizes are coming in June 2016.
