Ever-Growing Demand For Gensco Tires
"We constantly buy aircraft tires from all over the world," says John Kross, Gensco owner and president.
"American and Canadian farm equipment manufacturers continue to increase the use of aircraft tires, as do their counterparts in Italy, Spain, France, Holland and many other countries. This rising worldwide interest means that the use of Gensco tires grows significantly every year as customers demand the superior quality and economical pricing of aircraft tires."
For more than 50 years, Gensco has sold recycled aircraft tires and ready-to-bolt-on wheel assemblies for use on agricultural equipment such as tractors, mowers, cutters and shredders, grain carts and wagons, backhoes, skid steers, scrapers, forklifts, and for other construction or industrial applications.
"Our tires give virtually flat-free service," Kross says. "We call them thorn-proof, but that includes stalks, stubble and rocks. They also have exceptional weight-bearing capacity." The reason is that aircraft tires have as many plies in the sidewalls as they do in the tread. Also, they have a natural rubber construction that does not weather or dry-out, unlike synthetic rubber mixes used in conventional farm and implement tires.
"Because of the stringent requirements of commercial aviation, these tires are the best-built in the world. They have to be," Kross emphasizes. They are extremely durable and serviceable. In fact, some customers tell us that they still have Gensco tires on their equipment after 20 years.
"We believe that word of mouth is our finest testimonial. Our reputation and business have been built one customer at a time since 1953. A large part of our service is answering simple questions, and we want our customers to know that we are here to help them, not just to sell them," Kross says.
Gensco's ever popular 9.5L15, 16 ply, replacement is joined now with the new 11L15, 26 ply, replacement assembly as Gensco's most sought after tire and wheel assemblies. Gensco offers a complete line of most implement tires.
Gensco now has 3 full-service facilities. Their corporate office and warehouse is at 3400 Highway 60 South @ County Road 140 in Wharton, Texas 77488 (ph toll-free 1-800-828-3350).

"We look forward to the future with great anticipation," Kross concludes. For more information, please call us (1-800-828-3350) and request a free 12-page catalog.
