Yokohama Tire Corp. and Nitro Circus are asking: do you want to “Get Trucked Up?” as part of the Yokohama Nitro Circus “Get Trucked Up Giveaway.” The grand prize is a custom-built, 2017 Ram 2500 Power Wagon Crew Cab 4×4 featuring Yokohama’s all-new GEOLANDAR M/T G003 mud-terrain tires.
The sweepstakes, in conjunction with Yokohama marketing partner Nitro Circus, runs through Oct. 15. The truck made its debut at the Nitro Circus show in San Diego and will be on display at all 20 Nitro Circus Live events across the country through the end of September. A free set of GEOLANDAR M/T G003 tires will be given away at each Nitro Circus Live event.
The sweepstakes winner will be announced after the close of the contest and will be streamed on Facebook Live.
“The grand prize-winning Ram 2500 Power Wagon is a real beauty,” said Fardad Niknam, Yokohama Tire director of LTR segment development. “We partnered with AEV to load the truck with all sorts of cool modifications, including a three-inch dual sport SC lifted suspension, a premium front off-road bumper, 17×8.5 Katla onyx black wheels and differential covers for the front and rear. The custom livery wrap was designed by Jon Sibal and, of course, it runs on 37×12.50 R17 Yokohama GEOLANDAR M/T G003 tires. It will draw a lot of attention from fans at the Nitro Circus events.”
Niknam said the new M/T tire was created for hardcore off-roaders, outdoor enthusiasts and pick-up truck/SUV owners, and is initially available in 37 sizes, ranging from 15- to 20-inch rim diameters. New features on the M/T, which goes on sale on July 1 in the U.S., include aggressive sidewall styling, GEO-SHIELD technology and a special triple-polymer compound.
Yokohama is the exclusive tire of the Nitro Circus Live Tour in the United States and an official sponsor of the Nitro World Games, happening June 24 at Rice-Eccles Stadium in Salt Lake City, Utah.
