ITP Tires & Wheels. Advanced Traction Technology


For over 30 years, ITP has been driven by a single passion: the pursuit of Advanced Traction Technology.

ITP tires are proudly designed and developed at its two American tire facilities in Clinton, Tenn., and Jackson, Tenn. ITP tires are currently produced in its manufacturing facility in Clinton, TN. Why is that important? Because we believe in American ingenuity and the quality of the products that only comes from being manufactured in the United States.

In test after test, ITP tires consistently outperform our imported competitors, whether it’s on hard pack, in the mud, the woods, or on the track – any terrain that calls for durability, precision handling and fast – action traction.

ITP tires deliver advanced performance because our engineers and designers all ride. With nearly 200 years of combined industry knowledge – from sales to research and development – ITP’s personnel spend countless hours listening to our customer base, analyzing the market, reviewing the competition, prototyping product, and testing in both lab and real-world environments, all in an effort to provide you with the very best for your hard-earned dollar.

Our market-driven approach focuses on quick response to new vehicle introductions and upgrades, building and delivering new sizes and styles of tires that consistently meet vehicle fitment, performance, and durability requirements.

ITP wheels, manufactured by our Global partners, are the perfect match for our ‘Made in USA’ tires. Our 50+ spectacular wheel designs and performance specs are customer-driven and built to last. Each wheel is inspected based on strict dimensional and structural criteria, ensuring quality, durability, and confidence you can always count on.
