Greenball Introduces Industry’s First 15-Inch All-Steel Special Trailer Tire
Thursday, September 15th, 2016
Greenball Corporation has expanded its lineup of the Tow-Master All-Steel Construction (ASC) with the industry’s first 15” all steel specialty trailer tire. The ST225/75R15 Tow-Master ASC is an ultra-premium trailer tire built specifically for heavier trailers pulled by today’s higher performance tow-vehicles.
“These tires might be hauling hundreds of thousands of dollars’ worth of property, and there’s definitely peace of mind that comes along with the purchase of these tires,” commented Greenball Senior Vice President Randy Tsai. “There are many consumers out there willing to pay a little more for a more capable and reliable tire. Despite the overall trend of ST pricing going down and an overabundance of availability in the economy line, there exists a segment of the trailer market that is demanding for a better ST tire than what is currently available. If dealers look at the prices of today’s 2500 and 3500 luxury pickups and some of the luxury and heavy duty trailers out there, they would recognize there is a demand for a premium trouble-free trailer tire that currently hasn’t been available until now, which is why the Tow-Master ASC is a great opportunity for dealers to make better margin.”
The 12-ply rated Tow-Master ASC (All-Steel Construction) is constructed with a 1-ply steel carcass and 3-ply steel belt overlay. The improved durability makes it suitable for a wide range of trailers. Additionally, the advanced tread compound and highway tread design offer stability and longevity at highway speeds. This is the first 15” all-steel trailer tire to hit the market, and requires a wheel with load capacity of 3,195 lbs. or greater.
The ST225/75R15 joins the ST235/85R16 that made its debut in June 2016, and both are now in stock and available through authorized Greenball tire dealers. Additional sizes are in production and will be available later in 2016.
