Uniroyal launches commercial truck tires in the U.S.

After decades of supplying car, minivan, SUV and pickup tires, Uniroyal has branched out into the commercial truck field, launching a line of six new tires for U.S. market.

The new tire line promises to meet the diverse needs of owner-operators and small fleets with products for every tire position and application — from long-haul and regional to on-/off-road, including dry van, flatbed, construction, and pickup and delivery.

Why has Uniroyal entered the market now?

Donna Murphy, business segment manager for Uniroyal Commercial Truck Tires, said the U.S. replacement market has been growing over the last two years, with growth coming in the lower intermediate and budget segments of the market.

“The Uniroyal brand has provided affordable and dependable passenger and light truck tires for over 120 years,” she said.

“We are now bringing that same value to the commercial truck industry for owner-operators and small fleets who are price conscious and looking for a reliable and dependable tire offer.

“Truckers deserve a tire that works as hard as they do, at an affordable price.”

Murphy said Uniroyal commercial truck tires are backed by a four-year manufacturer’s warranty and certain tires used in long-haul and regional applications are also covered by a one-year re-tread limited warranty. Uniroyal tires also contain strategic features, including pyramidal steel belts, insulating belt edge strips and a heavy gauge inner liner, that work together to reduce stress, promote endurance and protect the tire’s casing, she said.

Two of the tires, Uniroyal RS20 and Uniroyal LS24, are SmartWay-verified and meet the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) requirements for outstanding fuel efficiency.

What are they offering?

The new range of tires is currently being shipped to dealers and is available for sale. Dealers can request more information from their local Michelin salesperson. Uniroyal has produced an informational video on its new line of commercial truck tires.

All the information on the range is available on Uniroyal’s website.

The new Uniroyal line consists of six tread designs in 28 sizes.

  • Uniroyal® LS24™: SmartWay-verified long-haul all-position tire optimized for the steer axle
  • Uniroyal® LT40™: Long-haul and regional trailer tire
  • Uniroyal® RS20™: SmartWay-verified regional all-position tire optimized for the steer axle

    Replacing your truck tires is one of the regular expenses to be expected when operating a commercial truck. Irregular wear, however, can force you to replace truck tires early and waste money. You should be aware of the most frequent causes of irregular tread wear and tire failure while driving and maintaining your rig. That way, you can do everything within your power to keep wear to a minimum and safely go for longer without replacing your tires. @ http://www.huntertires.com

    Properly maintained commercial truck tires aren’t just a matter of safety and fuel economy (although that should be enough reason for any owner/operator or fleet manager); it’s a matter of federal regulation. The Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) has a number of regulations for commercial tires. If you are found to be falling short of these regulations, you may face citations or even have your truck placed out of service. . @ http://www.huntertires.com

    Hello!
    It’s time to start preparing for the perils of winter driving, and commercial tire chains are an important and often overlooked part of this preparation. A lot of truck drivers might simply throw them in the truck and consider themselves good to go, but there are a number of things to conside

    hi!
    You’re bound to encounter more than a few inconsiderate drivers. We’re not talking about trucker on trucker conflicts here, as it’s the non-trucking population that most often struggles to share the road with commercial vehicles.sale commercial truck tire

    hi!
    The very first thing to check are the policies of your trucking company. If they do allow pets, there may be an additional deposit or an extra cost to cover any additional cleaning due to the pet.

    hi!
    Exercise bands are also a great tool for truckers as they are small and can be used for strength and flexibility. They are not expensive and can offer a great variety of exercises to help keep things fresh.
