Palm Beach Gardens, FL – September 19, 2019 – TBC Brands, one of the largest distributors of private brand tires in North America, introduces a new agricultural value implement offering, the Akuret Implement I-1. Designed with utility and durability in mind, the line equips you with the tools to tackle your tasks head-on.

The Akuret Implement I-1 was constructed to minimize tire deflection and provide excellent rolling resistance. Its multi-rib tread design and wide footprint provides easy tracking, steering and flotation. This tubeless tire line boosts even tire wear allowing you to transport and perform in the field longer.

“TBC Brands is excited to launch the Akuret Implement I-1 to our dealer partner network,” said Bill Dashiell, SVP of the Commercial Tire Division for TBC Brands. “This tire was designed with excellent flotation capabilities to carry heavy loads and prevent compaction issues all while offering our customers and end users an enhanced value.”

The new Akuret I-1 is now available in 3 sizes:

  • 9.5L-15 D
  • 11L-15 D
  • 11L-15 F

Akuret agricultural tires feature a five-year warranty for workmanship and materials that includes a no charge replacement within the first twelve months with 10% or less of the original tread depth used if it becomes unserviceable due to a defect in design, workmanship, or material. A prorated allowance is available after the no-charge replacement period or the tread use exceeds that allowed based on the date of manufacture and the amount of tire use after it was installed.
