The Uniroyal brand from Michelin North America Inc. has added a SmartWay-verified long-haul drive tire to its lineup. The Uniroyal LD10 is available in two sizes, 275/80R22.5 with load range G and 11R22.5 with load range H.
"We continue to expand the Uniroyal portfolio to meet the needs of our owner-operator and fleet customers," says Darlene Shepherd, business segment manager for Uniroyal Commercial Truck Tires. "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 durability, dependability, and retreadability, the company says. 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 is marketed as an affordable option for every commercial truck tire position and application. 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 the addition of the Uniroyal LD10, the Uniroyal commercial truck tire portfolio, which launched in January 2016, now consists of seven tread designs.
