API rolls out Gladiator medium truck tire
American Pacific Industries Inc. (API) has introduced the Gladiator QR35-TR, the latest addition to its Gladiator medium truck tire line.
The new trailer tire is lighter and runs cooler than previous-generation Gladiator truck tires, according to API officials. It contains "stronger steel belts and footprint optimization...to boost resistance to irregular wear patterns."
The QR35-TR also contains a reformulated tread compound for chip and chunk resistance, as well as new bead and shoulder elements to reduce heat build-up.
It's available in four, 14-ply sizes: 11R22.5, 11R24.5, 295/75R22.5 and 285/75R24.5.
