CMA, Double Coin introduces OpttGreen Series


Double Coin Tires and its supplier, China Manufacturers Alliance (CMA), have introduced Double Coin's new OptiGreen Series of EPA SmartWay Verified fuel-efficient tires.

The OptiGreen Series includes the ultra premium:

- FR605 steer position tire.

- FD405 drive position tire.

- FT105 trailer position tire.

- FT125 - a new super wide fuel and weight efficient trailer position tire.

These four fuel-efficient EPA Smartway Verified tires, which feature advanced tread compounds and internal construction that provides low-rolling resistance and greater mileage, are the first in the OptiGreen Series, says Bob O’Connell, Double Coin’s OEM and fleet sales manager. A fifth addition is planned for later this year with the introduction of the FD425 super wide drive position tire.



The FT125 super wide trailer tire is also engineered with a low-profile design and a unique construction that promotes durability and consistent footprints for strength and even wear, while providing optimal fuel savings.

Designed using Double Coin's Finite Element Analysis (FEA) engineered science, and manufactured in IS014001 environmentally conscious facilities, the FT125 is available in a 445/50R22.5 size and has a maximum carrying capacity of 10,300 pounds (Load Index 161).

The tire features a low rolling resistance rib style tread design with an original tread depth of 16/32-inch.


New warranty

Also being introduced is Double Coin’s new 7-year limited casing warranty on select

OptiGreen products.

The warranty allows for end-users to utilize the benefits of Double Coin's standard TBR tire warranty that includes 50 percent free replacement and two retread casing guarantee, now extended to seven years on the FR605, FD405 and FT105 OptiGreen Series products.


Tire features

The FR605 steer tire is available in 6 tire sizes and features a 5-rib tread design, extensive siping and side-shoulder decoupling groove to enhance even wear and traction in long haul steer axle positions.

The FD405 drive tire promotes lower cost per mile by utilizing a closed shoulder and deep 26/32-inch tread design with stone drilling protectors.

The trailer tire FT105 features extensive tread siping to help fight irregular wear in free rolling positions.

"The OptiGreen Series is a reflection of our commitment to provide the most optimal fuel-efficient tires that not only provide fuel savings for our customers, but also has a positive impact on our environment," said Aaron Murphy, Vice President of CMA.

"These tires, and the IS014001 manufacturing environment they're produced in, allow us to confidently market these Smartway Verified products knowing that they reduce energy consumption in the creation, usage and retreadability portions of their life."
