CMA Launches Duraturn Commercial Tires

China Manufacturers Alliance

Tire firm China Manufacturers Alliance said it has launched a new brand of commercial tires called Duraturn TBR.

The tires are available in steer, drive, trailer and mixed service, and several are U.S. Environmental Protection Agency Smartway-verified for low-rolling-resistance applications.

“With modern tread designs and popular sizes, Duraturn tires being developed have been designed to meet the needs of independent tire dealers across North America,” Ken Coltrane, vice president of consumer tires for CMA, said in a statement.

“As the program continues to develop over the next year, it will grow to include more than 200 [different units] across multiple product lines that can all be mixed for easier ordering,” Coltrane said.

The company also debuted a consumer tire, Duraturn Mozzo.
