A new high-performance premium commercial vehicle tyre has begun rolling off the production line at CEAT Kelani Holdings, one of Sri Lanka’s largest manufacturer of pneumatic tyres.

The CEAT Winmile X3 AW is a Truck Bus Radial (TBR) in the 295/80 R22.5TL size, making it an ideal replacement tyre for heavy trucks including prime movers, fuel bowsers, bulk cement carriers, other large goods transport vehicles and passenger transport buses plying Sri Lanka’s roads, the Company said.
