DICK CEPEK® TIRES & WHEELS INTRODUCES 12 NEW FUN COUNTRY RADIAL SIZES IN MAY 2013

STOW, OH - Dick Cepek is introducing 12 new sizes of the Fun Country radial this month. With a unique hybrid design, the completely redesigned Fun Countryis one of the most impressive all-terrain tires in the history of the Dick Cepek line.
