Federal Tire Launches Xplora R/T

Torrance, CA – Federal Tire North America announces the launch of the new Xplora RT tire, a Herculean new product entry into the alluring and rapidly advancing R/T light truck tire segment. “We have observed continuing growth and increasing consumer demand for more performance balance calling for lower noise levels and improved on-road ride comfort than traditional M/T type tires offer. We have also noted that consumers desire their on/off-road light truck tires to have a rugged looking sidewall. Thus, the new Federal Xplora R/T is now here and ready to address the growing call of duty that the Xplora R/T provides to these consumers”, said Joe Kao, Operation Manager at Federal.

Federal will make 5 key sizes available immediately and will phase-in 18 additional sizes over the next few months.  The new Xplora R/T joins Xplora MTS launched in March of this year and Xplora MT launched in 2017. A new Xplora A/P was recently introduced in August of this year. “We are expanding the Xplora line of light truck tires at breakneck speed. We have a new A/T in the works and few more surprises coming!”, according to Kao.  “We are hopeful that our Xplora line, now and more so in the future, is a major driving force for our continued advance to gain market share in the US”, Kao added.


Loaded with features and benefits, Xplora R/T is ready to meet the challenges of a discerning consumer looking for a rugged terrain tire. “Navigating its chiseled path, the Xplora R/T produces a Herculean off-road experience with a delicate balance of roadside manners. The powerhouse Xplora R/T and the plus styled sidewall design provide rugged consumers the optimum balancing act for on and off-road excursions:  vigorous durability off-road, diminished noise on-road, with incredible styling no matter where you venture” said Kao.

Federal conducted a ride and drive event in Big Bear Lake, CA where they hosted 80 guests that included media, customers, and enthusiasts.
