Uniroyal has launched a commercial truck tire line that is designed for affordability and performance over a wide range of applications.
Uniroyal’s six new tires are designed for long-haul to regional to on and off-road, including dry van, flat bed, construction and pick-up and delivery vocations.
Two of the tires, Uniroyal® RS20™ and Uniroyal® LS24, are SmartWay® verified and meet the Environmental Protection Agency requirements for outstanding fuel efficiency.
“We are pleased to bring the Uniroyal brand, which has been in the U.S. passenger and light truck market for over 120 years, to the U.S. commercial truck market,” says Donna Murphy, business segment manager for Uniroyal Commercial Truck Tires. “Uniroyal truck tires provide affordable, reliable solutions for commercial truck operators.”
DuraShield construction, which is found in every Uniroyal tire, provides a combination of features designed to make the tires more durable and suitable for retreading. Three features, including pyramidal steel belts, insulating belt edge strips and a heavy gauge inner liner, are designed to 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.
Uniroyal’s new commercial tire lineup includes: Uniroyal LS24, SmartWay-verified long-haul all-position tire optimized for the steer axle; Uniroyal LT40, long-haul and regional trailer tire; Uniroyal RS20, SmartWay-verified regional all-position tire optimized for the steer axle; Uniroyal RD30, regional and long-haul drive tire; Uniroyal HS50, on and off-road all-position tire optimized for the steer axle; and Uniroyal HD60, on and off-road drive tire.
