Feb 1, 2009 12:00 PM
BFGoodrich Commercial Truck Tires has introduced the ST244 steer tire and TR144 trailer tire to its line of commercial truck tires. The tires feature a new sidewall design.
Along with the new aesthetics, the ST244 tire features a five-rib, four-groove tread design for superior water evacuation and also provides a decoupling groove that gives the tire an enhanced ability to resist irregular wear. More than 1,900 miniature sipes deliver excellent traction and combine with the decoupling groove in resisting irregular wear in the tread pattern. The ST244 tire's casing possesses an all-steel construction, allowing for retreadability. The ST244 tire is available in 11R22.5, 11R24.5, 275/80R22.5, and 275/80R24.5 sizes.
The TR144 tire showcases see-through grooves designed to improve wet traction and offers a five-rib design to help resist irregular wear on free-rolling axles. Shoulder grooves are engineered to further improve resistance to irregular wear, while the all-steel casing construction provides for retreadability. The TR144 tire comes in 11R22.5, 11R24.5, 275/80R22.5, and 275/80R24.5 sizes.
