TBC Brands has released the successor to the Arctic Claw Winter TXI & XSI, the Arctic Claw Winter WXI, which meets the industry’s severe snow service requirements of both the U.S. Tire Manufacturers Association (USTMA) and the Rubber Association of Canada (RAC) to carry the three-peak mountain snowflake symbol.
TBC says the new winter tire features wide tread grooves and multiple sipes for better traction in snow and slush compared to its predecessor. Designed to accept optional metal studs, the WXI provides additional grip and support in freezing rain, sleet and wet ice for drivers of coupes, sedans, CUVs, SUVs and light-duty pickup trucks. The Arctic Claw Winter WXI is available in 91 metric and LT sizes with rims ranging from 14-in. to 20-in.
