ITP INTRODUCES NEW TSUNAMI WHEEL FOR ATVs AND SxS VEHICLES

May 24, 2016

 Available in Authentic Beadlock and Simulated Beadlock styles. 

Clinton, TN, May 24, 2016 -- ITP today announced that it will launch the new "Tsunami" wheel for ATVs and side-by-side vehicles in August of this year. 

The all-new ITP STORM SERIES Tsunami UTV/ATV wheel features a classic eight-spoke design, flat black finish, center cap, and handsome milled accents on the beadlock ring and window edges. 

"Our third offering in ITP’s STORM SERIES line, the Tsunami is a contemporary interpretation of the classic eight-spoke design,” said Rhett Turpin, Head of ITP Sales.  “It comes in two versions –- single beadlock for total tire security and ‘simulated’ beadlock for value-minded consumers who want that beadlock look.”

The Tsunami wheels are expected to arrive in dealerships in August this year. Two sizes will be available for both the beadlock and simulated versions -- 14-in and 15-in. -– in all popular bolt patterns.

The lightweight Tsunami wheel is as rugged as they come and incorporates ITP’s proprietary “Rock Armor” inner wheel lip to provide vehicle owners with maximum wheel strength against breakage from rocks and debris.  The Tsunami’s simulated beadlock wheel is further strengthened with “Rock Armor” outer lip protection.

ITP engineers created the Tsunami wheel from the same super-light, superior strength aluminum alloy that’s also used in the other two STORM SERIES wheels, the Hurricane and the Tornado.  The result is a wheel with unmatched structural integrity and a load capacity rating of 1,200 lbs.  Both versions are backed by ITP’s Limited Lifetime Warranty.

ITP’s Tsunami UTV/ATV wheel recently underwent five days of rigorous testing at the 2016 Rally on the Rocks event in Moab, Utah.

“Wheel strength is the hallmark of ITP’s STORM SERIES wheel line,” adds Turpin. “That’s why we named each wheel in the STORM SERIES after the most powerful forces in nature. Riders can only conquer the world’s most challenging terrain when they use tires and wheels that are up to the task.” MSRP for the simulated beadlock is expected to be in the $110-120 range. The beadlock versions will sell in the $160-195 price point.
