Reversible side wall featured on Nexen’s new off-road tyre.
Nexen Tyre America has debuted its new Roadian MTX tyre, the company’s first entry in the “hardcore offroad market.”
The tyre is great in the mud and for rock climbing, while remaining practical and quiet on the highway, Nexen said. The MTX provides customers with the choice of two reversible side walls. One side is designed to be more aggressive and the other is a more traditional look.
Key performance features of the Roadian MTX tyre include a three-ply sidewall for protection and stability, burly lugs for maximum grip, aggressive traction and control, block position that reduces tyre noise, F Load on all flotation sizes and maximum air pressure of 80 PSI for increased towing capacity. The tyre also has a higher load capacity, a reinforced rubber belt and a rim protector bar on the 20-inch size.
The Roadian MTX tyre can be ordered in November for sizes 16” to 20”. Flotation sizes ranging from 33” to 37” will be available in summer 2018. The 35/12.5 R20 Roadian MTX tyre will be on display at the Specialty Equipment Market Association (SEMA) in Las Vegas next week.
