Industry type:Transportation
Product model number:SX-9
award 3

The SX-9 has fully adopted environmentally protective oil in its formula, which meets the latest EU Norms; furthermore, it primarily reduces the dust generated by tire wearing, thus preventing environmental pollution, and endeavors through independent efforts to protect the earth.
Under the circumstances of abnormally changing global weather resulting in longer rainy seasons, 4 wide straight grooves have been applied to the tread pattern with a groove-area ratio of 35% and an angle variation (wide ring grooves) on the vertical grooves which is able to increase the water draining efficiency of tires, as well as offer better handling of the car on wet ground, thus improving the gripping force on such surfaces. In comparison with the previous model (265/50R20), the braking distance has been proven to have been shortened by 1.1 m at about 2.7%.A part of traffic accidents occur due to "insufficient tire pressure"; therefore, the SX-9 adopted an excellent air seal rubber lining in the internal tire and increased its thickness in order to minimize the pressure leakage rate, which can prevent excessive fuel consumption and a drastic drop in safety, which can cause accidents or reduce comfort.
Furthermore, we have collaborated with customers in holding regional sales promotion activities according to particular market demands. In order to broaden our brand’s exposure. Europe is a popular car racing venue, and since 2009 we have sponsored Norway’s Gatebil Event, which is also one of the largest car remodeling exhibitions in Europe. This sponsorship has successfully increased sales volume by 30%.
In regards to sales channel in deployment, we have currently setup signboard tire ships in Ireland, Malaysia, Kenya, Lebanon, South Africa and Thailand, etc.; where signboard shops worldwide have raised nearly to 300. In South Africa’s market, we have even successfully penetrated into the NISSAN and TOYOTA Service Centers and have become the approved vendor for their markets.
