I'm pleased to announce the introduction of the Double Coin IM105, a radial tire built specifically for intermodal container chassis providers, manufacturers and the intermodal freight industry.
Our new tire could not have come at a better time! Total intermodal freight volumes gained 4.5% in the second quarter of the year, the strongest growth in nearly three years, according to new figures from the Intermodal Association of North America.
The IM105 container chassis tire is a fuel-efficient, SmartWay verified and CARB Compliant low rolling resistant tire. Furthermore, it is engineered with additional ozone protection that lasts up to 12 years, which is very important for intermodal applications which tend to use tires much longer than typical long haul and regional applications.
Backed by the standard Double Coin warranty, the IM105 is available in two sizes: 11R22.5 and 295/75R22.5, both with Load Range G and an 8.25 RIM listing.
When a customer is buying a new chassis or refurbishing an old chassis, the IM105 is the perfect replacement for bias-ply tires – meeting both federal safety and fuel efficiency standards. It also delivers exceptional value that will benefit an intermodal operation.
