GREENVILLE, S.C. (Oct. 4, 2016) — Michelin North America has added a Uniroyal-branded SmartWay-verified, long-haul drive tire to its truck tire portfolio.
The Uniroyal LD10, which is available in sizes 275/80R22.5 load range G and 11R22.5 load range H, complements the LS24 steer tire and LT40 trailer tire in Uniroyal's SmartWay-verified line of products, according to Darlene Shepherd, business segment manager, Uniroyal Commercial Truck Tires.
“This addition allows Uniroyal to now offer a total SmartWay-verified long-haul solution,” Ms. Shepherd said. “This is what our customers have been asking for.”
The LD10 has an enhanced fuel-efficient compound designed for long, even wear, the company said. The tire incorporates DuraShield construction, including pyramidal steel belts, insulating belt edge strips and a heavy-gauge inner liner, 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 also are covered by a one-retread limited warranty, the company said.
