Post Introducing the CROSSTEK, Nitto's latest line of light truck, SUV and CUV tires.

Nitto Tire proudly announces the launch of the CROSSTEK. The CROSSTEK is Nitto's latest line of light truck, SUV and CUV tires. The CROSSTEK line was engineered and developed in three distinct all-season tread patterns. Each pattern was developed for specific vehicle types to enhance comfort and performance. All three patterns in the CROSSTEK family are offered in 17" inch to 20" rim fitments.

The CROSSTEK is designed for ½-ton trucks and SUVs. It provides outstanding wet traction and versatility. It can be used for recreational activities, like mild off-road use and towing.

- The CROSSTEK is engineered to provide excellent wet-weather traction. The pattern includes four circumferential grooves that channel away water to help provide a stable contact patch and enhanced water evacuation during heavy braking and adverse weather conditions.
- 3D Multiwave sipes improve both wet traction and tread wear by providing biting edges for wet traction while helping to reduce tread flex.
-The CROSSTEK is equipped with a brand-new wear-resistant compound. Wear-resistant polymers were infused throughout the compound along with wear-resistant carbon black to improve the overall durability of the CROSSTEK. All CROSSTEK sizes with an S or T speed rating is backed by a 60,000-mile limited treadwear warranty and all H rated sizes are backed by a 50,000 mile warranty.

Nitto CROSSTEK HD- Heavy Duty
The CROSSTEK HD is designed for ¾-ton and 1-ton trucks. It is a durable and long-lasting tire. Each size is E-load rated for higher payload and towing. The construction, compound and tread pattern are all built to provide strength and durability.

-The CROSSTEK HD is equipped with a brand-new compound designed to reduce wear.
-The CROSSTEK HD has a square tread profile that creates more even contact across the tread surface. This is achieved with the tire's two cap-ply construction.
-After development, the CROSSTEK HD was thoroughly tested in real-world driving conditions to promote optimal and even tread wear.

Nitto CROSSTEK CUV- Crossover
The CROSSTEK CUV is designed for crossover vehicles and compact SUVs. It is a safe and quiet tire designed for well-rounded performance.

-Nitto created a new compound that decreases rolling resistance by adding a new polymer to reduce carbon particle movement. This translates into less energy loss in the molecular level and lower rolling resistance.
-Silica works in combination with the other polymers to reduce tread flex. Silica also allows the tire to operate at lower temperatures. This means the tire performs well in adverse weather conditions.
-Nitto's engineers created several pattern designs and evaluated the noise produced by each. By adjusting the shape and position of individual blocks, Nitto minimized the pattern noise that is often experienced while driving at highway speeds.
- All CROSSTEK CUV sizes with S and T speed ratings are backed by a 60,000 mile limited treadwear warranty and sizes with an H,V, or W speed rating are backed by a 50,000 mile warranty.

The Nitto CROSSTEK line is available at Tire Kingdom, Big O Tires, NTB and Merchant's stores.
