SRNA Launches New Falken Super-Regional Truck Tire

March 23, 2022

Sumitomo Rubber North America Inc. (SRNA) brought its newest commercial truck tire, the Falken BI837, to the 2022 Mid-America Trucking Show (MATS), which took place March 24-26 in Louisville, Ky.

The drive position tire is designed for super-regional use.

It has been engineered "to prevent stone drilling and features a long casing life by addressing groove geometry that releases stones while in operation,” says Natsuki “Nick” Yoshida, SRNA field engineer. 

“We’ve developed this tire with a high-mileage tread compound and will initially offer it in 11R22.5, 11R24.5, 295/75R22.4 and 285/75R22.5 sizes in 2022, with more expansion to follow. We’re excited to present this tire to our customers because we know how well it performs.”

“We’re delighted to be exhibiting again at MATS, which attracts more than 72,000 attendees and over 1,000 exhibitors,” stays Bob Klimm, SRNA director of sales, commercial division.
