Icon Tire is now offering its Visual Tire Performance Indicators to other tire manufacturers and distributors.
We believe that everybody should have access to VTPI. Icon Tire is about making life a little safer, and we are excited to make VTPI available to any tire manufacturer or marketer that wants to join our cause,” said Pat O’Brien, Icon Tire founder and CEO.
Built into the tread of the tire, Icon’s VPTI allows drivers to know when their safety of their tread is compromised through a color-coding system. Similar to wear bars, the VPTI allows drivers to see through black, yellow and red indicators the wear of their tire.
The indicators are not inserted during the tire production process, but can be added at the factory or as a retail option. The VPTIs are currently available for distribution. For more information visit icontire.com.
