Uniroyal Tires has relaunched its commercial truck portfolio with the introduction of three tire offerings in the U.S.
The new lines – the Uniroyal LT2 Line Haul Trailer tire, the RS2 Regional Steer tire and the RD2 Regional Drive tire – were designed with customers’ performance needs in mind, company officials said in a press release.
The LT2 Line Haul Trailer tire is available in both standard and low-profile sizes for 22.5” and 24.5” rim diameter. The RS2 Regional Steer and RD2 Regional Drive tires will be available at the end of July at Uniroyal dealers. The RS2 and RD2 will have extended sizes into the 19.5” and 17.5” rim diameters to support last-mile-delivery fleets.
“This new update to our line is meant for the cost-conscious buyer who is looking for reliability, durability and value in their tires from a trusted brand,” said Coy Jones III, senior marketing manager for Michelin North America. “This is a completely new tread design across the three lines that is appealing to the market.”
The company also redesigned its website to make it easier for customers to find dealers that carry the new products.
Additional products will be coming later in the year, to address the needs of fleets for line haul drive tire position and on/off road commercial truck tire applications.
“Our goal with the relaunch and update with these new lines is to give our customers more choice in their fleet selections,” Jones said.
