China Manufacturers Alliance LLC (CMA) has added sizes to its Double Coin RLB452 open shoulder drive-position tire and Double Coin RR202 five-rib highway service tire.
The fuel-efficient Double Coin RLB452 features a four-belt package and an open shoulder that allows debris to escape from between tread lugs. "It offers more biting edges across the tread surface, which can help enhance grip and traction on dry or slippery road surfaces," say CMA officials.
The tire's long wear "is achieved by a deep, 28/32nds of tread depth."
“We have not introduced a new open shoulder drive tire in a very long time," says Tim Phillips, vice president of marketing and operations for CMA/Double Coin. "The traction performance on the tire is outstanding on wet and snow covered roads. It also includes Double Coin’s seven-year warranty and three-retread warranty. Furthermore, we want our loyal customers to know that we are not discontinuing the older (Double Coin) RLB1 open shoulder drive tire.”
The new RR202 315/80R22.5 20-ply is a heavy-duty commercial truck tire for multiple applications, including trucks carrying heavy loads and transport buses. The five-rib product is built "for superior handling and traction," say CMA officials. "It also features protective sidewall ribs, which combat curb damage and abrasion."
Phillips calls the RR202 "a diverse tire. Depending on the size, we have also seen this tire perform well in offhighway or mixed service applications. I consider the RR202 as an all-position tire that can be positioned in steer, drive or a trailer position.”
