Duraturn Tire Adds 13 New Sizes

Duraturn has announced the addition of 13 sizes to its tire line-up, including eight new sizes in its Mozzo Touring and Travia H/T product lines.

Duraturn has announced the addition of 13 sizes to its tire line-up, including eight new sizes in its Mozzo Touring and Travia H/T product lines. The new sizes were announced at the 2017 SEMA show.

Three sizes have been added to the Mozzo Touring line – 235/65R17, 235/60R17 and 215/55R17 – bringing the total number of Mozzo Touring sizes in North America to 28. Backed by a 70,000-mile limited tread wear warranty, the Mozzo Touring tire is designed for today’s more popular sedans and crossovers.

The Travia H/T is gaining five new sizes – 255/70R16, 245/75R16, 265/65R18, 265/65R18 and 265/60R18 – bringing the total number of sizes to 31. The Travia H/T is designed for a quiet and comfortable ride on the highway for today’s modern crossover and sport utility vehicles and is backed by a 60,000 mile limited tread wear warranty.

The three sizes – 245/70R17, 275/70R18 and 275/65R20 – have been added to the Travia A/T, bringing the total to 28. This all terrain light truck tire, which comes with a 50,000 mile limited tread wear warranty, combines a 5 rib tread design for longer wear on the road with specially designed tread blocks for extra traction off the road.

One additional size is being added to the Travia Van line-up – 235/65R16 – and an additional size – 215/55R17 – to the studless Mozzo Winter tire.

Duraturn tires for passenger cars, light trucks and specialty trailers are manufactured by YC Rubber Company.

“Our dealers are pleased with these additions because all of these are increasingly popular sizes in North America,” said Ken Coltrane, vice president of YC Rubber Co. “We’re continuing to work with our dealers to identify other sizes that will benefit their businesses and expect to add more sizes in 2018.”
