Titan TGS2

Titan TGS2 Tires Now More Equipped for Heavier Loads

Higher-rated option a direct result of implementing customer and dealer feedback

QUINCY, Illinois <April 23, 2024> Titan International Inc. (Titan) is excited to announce the release of a 2-star rating on two sizes in its TGS2 line: the 17.5R25 and 14.00R24. The upgraded rating allows for additional load capacity without moving to a larger tire size — making it ideal for applications that rely on optional attachments. With an all-season tread pattern and bold design, the TGS2 is a versatile option for year-round use and offers superior traction on various surfaces, including snow, ice and mud.

In-field feedback prompts design changes

Titan's decision to introduce a 2-star rating on the TGS2 tire was driven by dealer feedback and customer demand. Dealers noticed recurring tire issues caused by overloaded graders and loaders but didn’t have a stronger-rated tire in the same size to offer instead. The feedback was passed along to Titan, prompting the development efforts to move the TGS2 tires to a 2-star rating. 

"We are thrilled with the positive response from our customers on these 2-star TGS2 tires," said Scott Jansen, Sales Manager at Graham Tire. "Titan's commitment to serving industry needs and its support in addressing our feedback has been exceptional. It’s one of many ways Titan helps us support our customers."

Strong, durable tire for multiple applications

The 2-star TGS2 tires are particularly suitable for use on loaders and graders, such as a Cat 120 motor grader or a John Deere 672G motor grader that are used in a myriad of applications, work sites and ag/construction crossover use. The new 2-star TGS2 sizes are dual-rated tires with features that offer customers a tire that is strong and durable, but also a versatile tire option. These features include:

  • Ideal tread depth — The tread depth is shallower than higher-rated tires, which reduces heat buildup, but deep enough to tackle a variety of terrains. This is particularly suitable for municipal loaders that are commonly used for trash and brush cleanup.
  • Steel-belted layers — Available in the 17.5R25, the TGS2 features steel-belted layers that enhance cut resistance and reduce the tire’s tread wear, making it ideal for applications requiring optional attachments and increased workloads in harsher environments.
  • Multipurpose tire for all-weather use — Since the TGS2 is an all-weather tire, it can effectively tackle multiple jobs for both graders and loaders. This allows for a cost-effective solution for municipalities looking to maximize their budgets with a dependable tire through all four seasons.

Additional sizes of the TGS2 line are expected to be released with a 2-star rating later this year.
