It is available in standard H-load range sizes for Class 6, 7 and 8 trucks.
* the Dayton Metro All-Position, a short-haul tire designed for pickup and delivery applications. The radial tire has a deep original tread, solid shoulder design, deep wrap-around grooves, thousands of rib-edge sipes, four full steel belts and an all-steel casing ply.
