Atturo Hits SEMA With New Sizes in the Trail Blade® X/T and AZ850 Series

Atturo Tire has increased the size range in its SEMA Award-winning, Urban All Terrain ™ Trail Blade X/T and its acclaimed AZ850 performance tire. These new sizes represent both a whole new look for SUV, CrossOvers and pickups that were previously denied the opportunity to incorporate aggressive tire design and performance, and an expansion into tire sizes other manufacturers have left at the wayside.

The Trail Blade X/T is a new type of multi-terrain tire - an Urban All Terrain tire - that marries off road style with on road manners. Another collaboration with Quartermaster Knives, the X/T cuts into the segment between traditional M/T and A/T tires. It offers the open shoulder and sidewall tread lugs of a mud terrain, combined with the off road ability of an all-terrain and the road feel of a highway tire. The design and variety of sizes brings a whole new look to SUV, CrossOvers and pickups as never before.

New sizes for the X/T include: 345/50R24
