Anaheim, Calif. – January 23, 2013 – GBC Motorsports is excited to announce that they have expanded their popular line of Dirt Commander tires by adding two new sizes this year (one front and one rear).

The Dirt Commander is one of GBC’s best selling products, and with good reason. This all terrain tire is extremely durable and puncture resistant, and features deeply siped tread for exceptional traction in all conditions. The Dirt Commander is also suitable for both Side-by-Sides and Utility ATVs, and boasts an impressive max load rating thanks to its 8-ply rated bias construction.

“We take customer feedback very seriously and often the expansion of our lines starts by talking to the people that are out there riding and racing,” said Kory Ellis, GBC Motorsports Representative. “Larger tire sizes are gaining popularity, but not everyone is able or willing to move to a 14″ wheel. As a result we developed these new sizes so that we could offer our larger 27” Dirt Commanders for 12” wheels.”

The two new Dirt Commander sizes will be 27×9.00-12 (front) and 27×11.00-12 (rear).
