Affordable, dependable line meets diverse needs of truckers
LAVAL, QC, April 16, 2015 /CNW Telbec/ - Uniroyal® announced today the launch of six commercial truck tires in the Canadian market. The new tire line provides an affordable offer for every position and application, from long haul to regional to on/off-road. Two of the tires, Uniroyal® RS20™ and Uniroyal® LS24™, are SmartWay® verified, which means they have met the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) requirements for outstanding fuel efficiency.
"For more than 120 years, Uniroyal has provided affordable and dependable passenger and light truck tires," said Harold Phillips, COO for Michelin North America (Canada), Inc. "We are excited to bring that same value to the trucking industry. Commercial truck operators can trust Uniroyal tires to work as hard as they do. It's an affordable solution that will keep them rolling with minimal downtime."
At the heart of every Uniroyal tire is DuraShield® construction, Uniroyal's unique combination of features for durability, dependability and retreadability. 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. Uniroyal commercial truck tires are backed by a four-year manufacturer's limited warranty. Certain long-haul and regional applications are also covered by a one-retread limited warranty.
The new Uniroyal line consists of six tread designs, available in sizes 11R22.5 and 11R24.5:
- Uniroyal® LS24™: SmartWay verified long-haul steer and all-position tire
- Uniroyal® LT40™: Long-haul and regional trailer tire
- Uniroyal® RS20™: SmartWay verified regional steer and all-position tire
- Uniroyal® RD30™: Regional and long-haul drive tire
- Uniroyal® HS50™: On/off-road steer and all-position tire
- Uniroyal® HD60™: On/off-road drive tire
