New 26-inch sizes added to Sand Star and Dune Star lines
ITP has announced the addition of several new 26-inch sizes to the Sand Star and Dune Star tire lines for 2009. According to ITP, this will add a new level of control, traction and comfort for UTV sand dune enthusiasts.
The ITP Sand Star, one of the more popular duning tires, now comes in 26×9-12 front and 26×11-12 rear sizes specifically designed for UTV applications. ITP says the new 26-inch options “utilize an extremely lightweight yet durable carcass and a special rubber compound that deliver an ideal balance of flotation, flexibility and cornering capability.”
The front Sand Star features a patent-pending dual-rib design for what ITP calls “unmatched steering response,” while the rear uses a combination of paddle sizing, spacing and shape to deliver “an exceptional blend of acceleration and handling.”
New to the Dune Star lineup is the 26×9-12 front size, which ITP says is a perfect complement for the proven 26×10-12 rear.
“Nothing hooks up harder than the rear Dune Star, which features highly aggressive, reinforced, dual-depth paddles for unmatched straight-line acceleration,” ITP Tires says in a release. “The new front Dune Star provides light, accurate steering, and like the rear model, uses a super-flexible carcass for a superb ride.”
