Titan Tire introduces versatile, all-season TGS2 tire for motor graders

QUINCY, Ill. — Titan International, Inc. (“Titan”) has released the Titan TGS2, a new line of radial all-season tires for motor graders. The TGS2 provides optimum stability, regardless of weather, and reliably plows through snow-packed roadways while maintaining a smooth, safe ride. The TGS2 is available in both standard and low sidewall (LSW) sizes.

“We’ve seen an interest from municipalities and snow managers for a tire that can plow through otherwise impassable roadways, and that’s exactly what the TGS2 is designed to do,” said Johni Francis, global product manager at Titan Tire Corporation. “Prior to the TGS2, there really weren’t many options in the market for a tire like this. We’ve taken it a step further and built a low sidewall version of the tire that also improves ride quality and reduces vehicle bouncing.”

The TGS2 tread has an open-shoulder design with a full tread-depth across its surface, providing superior traction in snow, ice and mud. The siping on the lugs provides an additional biting edge that allows this rugged tire to perform where others would struggle, especially in foul weather.

The TGS2 is currently available in standard 14.00R24, 17.5R25, 20.5R25 sizes, as well as an LSW 17.5R31.5 and LSW 20.5R31.5. The LSW design incorporates a larger rim diameter, helping reduce sidewall recoil and provide enhanced stability and traction in all road conditions.
