Palm Beach Gardens, FL – July 8, 2020TBC Brands, one of the largest distributors of private brand tires in North America, introduces the Power King Towmax Vanguard, the next generation in the Towmax family of tires. This ST radial tire provides significant enhancements in performance and appearance while providing industry-leading durability and warranty coverage.

The Towmax Vanguard was designed to be the industry standard by combining an array of features to provide consumers a unique quality and performance proposition. The tire features decoupling grooves and an optimized tread depth to reduce rolling resistance and heat buildup extending the life of the tire while large shoulders and an extra wide tread face provide even load distribution and stability through a larger contact patch.

To maintain the tire’s appearance and decrease sidewall damage, the Towmax Vanguard also features scuff protectors.
