Goodyear adds spliceless Unicircle tread
Goodyear Tire & Rubber Co. has added a spliceless Unicircle tread for mixed-service applications. Available now, the G186 MSA UniCircle has three zig-zag circumferential grooves for extra all-season traction and a long-wearing compound for increased tread life.
“Goodyear UniCircle retreads feature a spliceless, seamless design, which offers several benefits, including snug adherence to a tire’s casing to enhance uniformity, casing endurance and toughness,” says Brian Buckham, general manager, product marketing, Goodyear Commercial Tire Systems.
The process for applying the spliceless tread to casings is another benefit, according to the company. Goodyear UniCircle treads are automatically positioned on casings using laser-guided technology and are precision-stitched. Because there is no cutting or splicing during the UniCircle tread application process, the resulting retread is uniform and balanced, which helps extend casing life and mileage.
“The G186 MSA UniCircle is the latest addition to our full line of UniCircle retreads,” said Buckham. “We believe it will become the ‘go-to’ retread product for mixed-service fleets.”
