Nexen Tire Partners With Animal Rescue Rigs

Animal Rescue Rigs selects Nexen Tire’s Roadian MTX Xtreme off-road tires for “PAWS ONE” animal recovery vehicle.

Nexen Tire America, a worldwide leader in high-performance, passenger, SUV/light truck and winter tire technology, has partnered with Animal Rescue Rigs (ARR), an animal-rescue 501(c)(3) charity, to supply the company’s most capable off-road tire for PAWS ONE, a highly modified 2018 Nissan TITAN XD Gas PRO-4X which debuted at the 2018 Specialty Equipment Manufacturer Association (SEMA) Show in Las Vegas. PAWS ONE features 35-inch Nexen Tire Roadian MTX Xtreme Off-Road tires and was built to provide support for securing lost and/or injured animals during and after natural disasters. Rescuers are required to cover virtually all terrain types and need a tire with maximum traction across multiple driving surfaces, including on- and off-road, often in muddy and snowy conditions. With massive winter storms sweeping the nation, first responders have battled high winds, frigid temperatures and snowstorms to provide rescue services. PAWS ONE stands ready to help stranded animals that end up in similar situations.

“Nexen Tire believes in Animal Rescue Rigs’ mission, and we are proud to fully support them in anyway we can,” said Brian YoonSeok Han, CEO of Nexen Tire America, Inc. “We fully understand natural disasters can happen at a moment’s notice, and rescuers need to have the best equipment to respond quickly and safely. Having tires capable of tackling nearly any terrain, like the Roadian MTX, allows first responders to answer the call and provide critical rescue services when it matters most.”

Nik Miles, chairman of the board for Animal Rescue Rigs, firmly believes in the expanded capability provided to PAWS ONE by the Roadian MTX Xtreme Off-Road tires.

“PAWS ONE is truly a comprehensive, purpose-built vehicle offering plenty of rescue capabilities. However, one thing the build really needed was a capable tire. Our mission is to assist animals, no matter where they may be – and if we don’t have the equipment needed to reach them because of traction limitations, we can’t complete the mission. Thanks to our Roadian MTX tires, we’re confident PAWS ONE will tackle virtually any terrain when called into service,” said Miles.
