SEMA News—February 2022

Global Tire Expo New Products

By Douglas McColloch

The Newest Tires for 2022
The Latest Treads and Tire Accessories From the 2021 SEMA Show

One reason why tire sales remain robust could be the fact that the sheer number of tread patterns and available sizes have never been more varied. From knobby off-road treads to ultra-grippy track tires, there’s a tire for just about any road surface, vehicle application, wheel diameter or driving style. What follows here is the roster of tires and related products that were displayed in the New Product Showcase at the 2021 SEMA Show.

Among automotive enthusiasts, few components stir as much discussion and inspire as much brand loyalty as tires. Tires are such a huge and influential segment of the automotive aftermarket—comprising an estimated $4.60 billion in sales last year, according to the latest SEMA Market Report—that they warrant their very own floor (along with their companion wheels) at the Las Vegas Convention Center for the annual SEMA Show.
