Milestar, a brand of tire manufacturer Tireco, has announced the all-new Patagonia X/T Xtreme all-terrain tire, which SEMA Show attendees can see at Booth #41061 in the lower South Hall of the Las Vegas Convention Center.
This modern refined light truck tire is designed to deliver the bold, aggressive looks and strong off-road performance normally found in an M/T tire yet still provides smooth, quiet on-road manners associated with an all-terrain tire, Tireco says.
The Patagonia X/T’s rugged tread blocks feature step-down supports on the center blocks to provide enhanced stability and handling. All sizes feature a 3-ply sidewall for added strength. Its silica-infused cut- and chip-resistant tread compound works with stone and mud ejectors to tackle the toughest offroad conditions, Tireco says.
Select sizes of the tire are offered with an F load rating to allow for higher load carrying capacity ideal for today’s ¾ ton and 1 ton truck applications. The X/T is engineered and designed for a quieter ride utilizing a variable pitch tread pattern, while the variable depth siping provides performance consistency throughout the entire life of the tire.
The initial launch of the tire will feature 20 popular OE replacement and aftermarket sizes for the light truck and off-road enthusiast market. All sizes of the Patagonia X/T feature 18/32-in. tread depth and are backed with a 40,000-mile limited warranty.
“Expanding the Patagonia family of tires continues to be a top priority of us,” said Andrew Hoit, Tireco’s vice president of sales and marketing. “We’re committed to meeting our dealer’s ever-growing, light truck volume, by delivering a variety of truck tire options, tailored to their customer’s needs.
Popular sizes available include 35X12.50R20LT F/12, LT275/70R18 E/10, LT305/55R20 F/12, 37X12.50R20LT F/12, LT275/65R20 E/10
