Attention Soldiers: Win A Free Modification to Your Truck

WAYNE, N.J. May 24, 2010 - We, as civilians, have it easy. The brave men and women who protect our country, families and freedoms, do not. As a thank you to all of the soldiers who are serving in our military, Demented Customs and Truckin' magazine are working with Hankook Tires, USW forged, RBP and Airbagit.com to transform one soldier's truck.

Hankook Tire will be supplying a new set of ultra-high performance tires to go along with the one-off paintjob, custom suspension and other custom modifications that will be made to the lucky recipient's truck.

Hankook products rank among the best in the industry according to 2009 published tests in Car and Driver magazine and other leading enthusiast publications. Truck owners looking for remarkable performance and road handling can look to Hankook's Ventus ST, which are designed specifically for the high performance, luxury SUV and light truck market. For those who don't drive trucks, Hankook offers high-quality products that appeal to any consumer. The Hankook Ventus V12 evo is a maximum performance summer tire developed for drivers of sports cars and high-performance sedans.

"This is a great opportunity for us to show our appreciation and support for America's military troops," said Bill Bainbridge, director of brand communications for Hankook Tire America Corp. "We're proud to be involved with this program and we're looking forward to rewarding an individual who selflessly serves our country each day."

Current soldiers are encouraged to go to truckinweb.com and set up a user account and then send any Truckin' editor a private message (PM) with their name, email address, phone number, military branch, and current deployment status. They are also asked to include truck information including year, make and model along with any current modifications. Truckin' will select the winner at random and announce their name in issue 10 of Truckin', on sale July 27, 2010.
