Triangle Tire USA has introduced an all-position truck tire, the Triangle TRS02, which the company hails as a practical solution for regional and urban haul operations. The TRS02 is SmartWay-verified and Triangle says it delivers a long tread life and cornering and traction capabilities. It’s built with a durable casing to allow for multiple retreads.
A split layer compound in the TRS02 delivers long tread life while reducing rolling resistance. A wider footprint also contributes to extended removal miles, the company says. Cornering stability and overall handling are aided by a variable sipe concept and undulating tread base grooves.
Rick Phillips, vice president of sales for Triangle Tire USA, says, “This is a new generation product for Triangle. It’s a preview of things to come as we revamp our lineup and prepare for TBR production in the U.S.”
The 10 sizes range from 265/70R19.5 to 11R24.5. Ply ratings range from 14 to 20. The TRS02 is available in 10 sizes, and is backed by a warranty that includes:
- 90-day satisfaction guarantee;
- five-year casing warranty;
- three-retread warranty; and
- free replacement during first 50% of tread wear if the tire becomes unserviceable due to workmanship or material defects.
“With its combination of performance and competitive pricing, the TRS02 provides a very practical solution for regional fleets wanting to increase their tire performance and reduce tire operating costs,” says Phillips.
Triangle Tire USA is the wholly owned subsidiary of Triangle Tyre Co. Ltd. In December 2017, the company announced Edgecombe County, North Carolina, will be home to the company's first manufacturing facility in the United States.
