Dealer Recommends Double Coin

Posted by Tim Phillips on Aug 21, 2019 8:22:58 AM

A good tire dealer, like Pomp's Tire, analyzes the customer's operation and makes well-thought-out recommendations.
A South Dakota owner operator is sure glad Pomp's recommended Double Coin five years ago!
"The folks at Pomp's recommended Double Coin based on the type of hauling I do. I started with Double Coin on my trailers and then I put two sets of drive tires on two separate tractors," Paul Evenson recalled. "They just wear very consistently. It's been a good tire for me. No cupping. No capping. Just good even wear!"
Evenson, who lives near Sioux Falls, splits his time between farming corn and soybeans with hauling grain and bulk fertilizer. He has four T800 and one W900 Kenworth tractors that pull grain hopper trailers in tandem and tri-axle configurations.

"I've used lots of different tire brands over the past 20 years, and I just really like the Double Coins for consistent wear," he said, noting that the RLB400s are provide a smooth ride and dependable traction.

We receive feedback like this often on the Double Coin RLB400 drive tire. An extra deep 30/32" tread with stone drilling protectors promotes long original mileage in the RLB400, and the closed shoulder tread design provides even wear.

We sincerely appreciate Paul's business and wish him many safe and productive miles on the road.

Please read below some recent comments from other folks who sell the RLB400, retread it, and log many, many miles on them:
