Uniroyal releases new long-haul truck drive tire
Uniroyal has added a new long-haul drive tire for commercial trucks, the Uniroyal LD10.
The SmartWay-verified tire is available in two sizes, 275/80R22.5 with load range G and 11R22.5 with load range H.
Uniroyal business segment manager Darlene Shepherd said the company, part of the Michelin North America family, continued to expand the Uniroyal portfolio to meet the needs of owner-operators and fleet customers.
“This addition allows Uniroyal to now offer a total SmartWay-verified long-haul solution — with the LS24 steer tire, LD10 drive tire and LT40 trailer tire. This is what our customers have been asking for.”
The Uniroyal LD10 has an enhanced fuel-efficient compound designed for long, even wear. DuraShield construction provides for durability, dependability and retreadability. Uniroyal also claims the tire’s “three strategic features — pyramidal steel belts, insulating belt edge strips and a heavy-gauge inner liner — work together to reduce stress, promote endurance and protect the tire’s casing.”
The Uniroyal commercial truck tire line provides an affordable option for every commercial truck tire position and application, from long-haul to regional to on-/off-road, including dry van, flat bed, construction, pick-up and delivery vocations.
Uniroyal commercial truck tires are backed by a four-year manufacturer’s limited warranty. Certain tires used in long haul and regional applications are also covered by a one-retread limited warranty. With this new addition, the Uniroyal commercial truck tire portfolio, launched in January 2016, now consists of seven tread designs.
