New tire for trailer applications

TBC Brands' Trailer King RST TireTBC Brands has introduced the Trailer King RST. The ST radial tire is Trailer King’s latest generation ST tire built for today’s modern trailer applications, the company says.

This tire is produced with segmented molds for exceptional uniformity and a modern appearance. The RST’s optimized tread depth reduces rolling resistance and heat buildup to maximize the life of the tire.  Most sizes feature a nylon overlay construction to maintain strength and durability for extended even wear on higher load applications, TBC Brands says.
