RANCHO CUCAMONGA, Calif. — Sumitomo Rubber North America Inc. (SRNA) has launched the Falken RI191 all-position truck tire designed for high-scrub delivery routes.
SRNA said it expanded its commercial product line to meet the increasing demand for the fast-growing 19.5 segment.
The RI191 offers high-mileage capability for aggressive, high scrub applications and features a four-rib design, shallow tread sipes and an all-new carbon particle cap compound with Falken's 4D Nano Technology to increase tread life and even wear, the company said.
The tire has up to a 16-ply rating, 17-18/32nd tread depth and a 75-81 mph speed rating. A stone defense feature in the center groove allows for casing protection and aids in urban and on-highway applications, the company said.
The RI191 is now available for customer orders.
