GREENVILLE, S.C., Oct. 4, 2016 —Michelin North America’s Uniroyal® brand announced today the addition of the Uniroyal® LD10™ for commercial trucks, a long-lasting, SmartWay®-verified long-haul drive tire. The Uniroyal LD10 is available in two sizes, 275/80R22.5 with load range G and 11R22.5 with load range H.
“We continue to expand the Uniroyal portfolio to meet the needs of our owner-operator and fleet customers,” said Darlene Shepherd, business segment manager, Uniroyal Commercial Truck Tires. “This addition allows Uniroyal to now offer a total SmartWay-verified long-haul solution — with the LS24™ steer tire, LD10 drive tire and LT40™ trailer tire. This is what our customers have been asking for.”
The Uniroyal LD10 has an enhanced fuel-efficient compound designed for long, even wear. DuraShield® construction, at the heart of every Uniroyal tire, provides for durability, dependability and retreadability. Three strategic features — pyramidal steel belts, insulating belt edge strips and a heavy-gauge inner liner — work together to reduce stress, promote endurance and protect the tire’s casing.
The Uniroyal commercial truck tire line provides an affordable option for every commercial truck tire position and application, from long-haul to regional to on-/off-road, including dry van, flat bed, construction, pick-up and delivery vocations. 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. With this new addition, the Uniroyal commercial truck tire portfolio, launched in January 2016, now consists of seven tread designs.
Uniroyal is one of the world's leading tire brands for passenger and commercial light trucks, minivans and sport utility vehicles. Dating back to 1892, Uniroyal has developed a reputation for providing affordable and dependable tires, including its Tiger Paw® and Laredo® tire series. Uniroyal now offers commercial truck tires to bring that same value to the trucking industry. Uniroyal is a wholly-owned subsidiary of Michelin North America, Inc.
