ITP Tire & Wheel Company in April announced that three of its most popular wheels will be available in a new matte black finish. The wheels include: the SD Dual Beadlock, the SS216 and the SS316 wheels.
Offering both a stylish and dependable design, the new SS216 Black Ops wheel from ITP Tire and Wheel has a 1,000-pound load rating and proprietary “Rock Armor” construction.
Marketed under the name Black Ops, the new black wheels feature a 1,000-pound load rating.
“We decided to market the wheels under the Black Ops namesake because they fit the styling profile of today’s UTV owners,” said Rhett Turpin, ITP Powersports director of sales & marketing. “The new black finish is ‘stealth mode’ — it’s a great look and our customers are always looking for a new way to dress up — or down — their machines.”
The black SS216 and SS316 wheels feature ITP’s proprietary “Rock Armor” construction, which consists of an inner reinforced lip that adds a second, inside structural component. ITP warrants the SS216 and SS316 wheels against bending or breaking and offers a lifetime replacement warranty.
Introduced in 2013, ITP boasts the SD Dual Beadlock is the first beadlock wheel made from a single piece of aluminum. It’s backed by what the company calls “Total Tire Security.” No matter what happens to the tire, according to ITP, the company guarantees it will stay attached at both the inner and outer beads. The wheel itself features a two-year limited warranty against bending or breaking.
All three black wheels are available in 12-by-7-inch and 14-by-7-inch sizing and are topped with a tough protective clear coat finish. Matching wheel caps are included with each wheel. The wheels are expected to arrive in dealerships in May.
