Primex LogStomper Xtreme: Stomping Out Logging’s Toughest Problems

Perhaps no group faces a more challenging collection of problems than our forestry tire customers. If dilemmas such as a lack of labor, fluctuating markets and erratic weather weren’t enough, today’s loggers need to move huge, high-horsepower machinery into often-remote and difficult-to-access parts of the forest—and then they have to remove huge, heavy timber from the forest. To address these issues, ATG created the Primex LogStomper Extreme.

International Day of Forests: Powering the World With Wood

On March 21 this year, countries around the globe will celebrated International Day of Forests. Entering its fourth year, the purpose of International Day of Forests is to celebrate and raise awareness for the importance of our forests, and the theme of this year’s event is The Forest: Nature’s Powerhouse.

Meet Alliance Tire Group's Olympians

With the world’s best athletes gathering in Rio for the 2016 Olympic games, everyone’s focus has turned to the games to determine who is truly the best at their craft. While we’re busy consuming the games around ATG office, we are also always thinking about tires (after all, those Olympic rings sure look like tires!), and can’t help but liken our tires to the world-class athletes we are watching. At ATG, we have found ourselves using the same adjectives to describe our tires that the announcers use to describe the athletes. Power, strength, agility, stability, and longevity are just some of the adjectives that come to mind when describing our tires, and are echoed again and again on the Olympic broadcasts. In the spirit of the Olympics, here are some of the medal winners from ATG.
