2 Sizes Added to Uniroyal's Commercial Tire Lineup
Michelin Tire North America Inc. has added two key sizes to its Uniroyal brand of commercial truck tires.
Uniroyal RS20, a SmartWay-verified regional all-position tire, is now available in a 255/70R22.5 size for regional pick-up and delivery vehicles and trailers. The Uniroyal HS50 is now available in a 425/65R22.5 size for on-/off- road dump trucks and concrete mixers.
“Uniroyal is expanding its line of commercial truck tires to meet the needs of two important customer segments: regional pick-up and delivery and construction,” says Darlene Shepherd, business segment manager for Uniroyal Commercial Truck Tires. “These additions bring affordable and dependable solutions for the small fleets and owner-operators we serve.”
The two new sizes add to the Uniroyal tire portfolio, launched in January 2016, which now consists of six tread designs with 28 total sizes. Michelin says the Uniroyal line provides an affordable offer for every commercial truck tire position and application from long-haul to regional to on-/off- road, including dry van, flat bed, construction, and pick-up and delivery vocations.
DuraShield construction, at the heart of every Uniroyal tire, provides for durability, dependability and retreadability, the company says. Three 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.
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.
