MONROVIA, Calif. (June 17, 2008) — China Manufacturers Alliance (CMA) L.L.C. has introduced the Double Coin RLB490, a low-profile regional drive tire with specific components specially designed for the regional pick-up and delivery trucking segment.
The new model uses core specifications of a previous model, the RLB900, the company said. The RLB490 has a tread depth of 19/32-inch to 22/32-inch, allowing it to endure rapid tread wear in high scrub applications, according to CMA. It is being offered in sizes 225/70R19.5/12; 245/70R19.5/16; 265/70R19.5/16; 255/70R22.5/16; and 275/70R22.5/16.
The new product also features large grooves and sipes in the tread area for higher traction, water dispersion and wear; wide shoulders to enhance maneuverability and deliver even footprint pressure; aggressive tread design for traction; and special tread compounds to fight scrub and irregular wear, the tire marketer said.
The RLB490 comes with a Double Coin warranty, guaranteeing two retreadings and 50 percent free replacement opportunities.
Monrovia-based CMA is a subsidiary of Chinese tire maker Double Coin Holdings Ltd.
