GREENVILLE, S.C., March 31, 2016 —The Uniroyal® brand announced today the addition of two new key sizes for the recently launched Uniroyal commercial-truck tires. Uniroyal® RS20™, a SmartWay®-verified regional all-position tire, is now available in a 255/70R22.5 size for regional pick-up and delivery vehicles and trailers. The Uniroyal® HS50™ is now available in a 425/65R22.5 size for on-/off- road dump trucks and concrete mixers.
“Uniroyal is expanding its line of commercial truck tires to meet the needs of two important customer segments: regional pick-up and delivery and construction,” said Darlene Shepherd, business segment manager, Uniroyal Commercial Truck Tires. “These additions bring affordable and dependable solutions for the small fleets and owner-operators we serve.”
The two new sizes add to the Uniroyal tire portfolio, launched in January 2016, which now consists of six tread designs with 28 total sizes. The Uniroyal line provides an affordable offer for every commercial truck tire position and application from long-haul to regional to on-/off- road, including dry van, flat bed, construction, and pick-up and delivery vocations.
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. 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.
Uniroyal is one of the world's leading tire brands for passenger and commercial cars, pick-ups, 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. To learn more about the new Uniroyal commercial truck tires, visit www.UniroyalTruckTires.com.
