TP Commercial Solutions LLC, the commercial arm of Pirelli Tire North America Inc., has launched two Pirelli-brand truck tires as part of its G:85 series.
The TG:85 is an on/off drive tire, and the FG:85 is an on/off road steer all-position tire. Both come in 11R22.5 and 11R24.5 sizes.
The TG:85 is an on/off road drive tire for mixed use vehicles operating in demanding tread-wear conditions, used mainly in the drive position. The tread design features robust shoulder blocks and a massive central rib to resist tears; and also wide, deep transversal grooves for optimum road holding and grip on slippery surfaces.
The special tread compound is formulated to provide lower operating temperatures to increase mileage and tire integrity. The enhanced undertread delivers longer tire life and protection against casing damage.
The FG:85 is an on/off road all position tire, dedicated to mixed use vehicles operating on roads, construction sites, and under-aggressive tread-wear conditions. The tire structure is engineered to enhance retreadability with a durable casing, specially formulated tread compound, Spiral Advanced Technology for Truck (SATT) and Bead Wrapped Chafer increased resistance.
The tread depth and increased undertread reduce possible casing damage, allowing longer mileage and tire life. The tread design, with zig-zag longitudinal grooves and wide transversal shoulder grooves, also maximizes traction on any surface.
Both tires feature SATT, a dual layer tread compound and bead wrapped chafer for better retreadability.
“The G:85 Series, incorporating the Pirelli Brands most advanced tire technology and 140 year industry expertise, are true workhorses for mixed use vehicles," says Clif Armstrong, president of TP Commercial Solutions "We offer an all position rib product and an aggressive drive companion that are both designed to enhance structural integrity, while resisting extreme stress factors and laceration.
"Equipped with a durable casing for multiple retreads, both tires were placed in the most demanding service environment tests possible and performed at the highest levels versus the competition."
