Dunlop brand adds truck steer tire
Dec 1, 2007 12:00 PM
Goodyear Tire & Rubber Co's Dunlop brand has landed a new flagship steer tire for line-haul and regional trucking.
The new Dunlop SP384 steer tire, a mid-priced brand for dealer and select wholesale distribution, features enhanced casing, tread design, and pressure distribution groove technology to help lower cost-per-mile and more miles to removal. This new tire gives the brand a complete portfolio for long-haul applications, joining Dunlop's SP453 drive and SP181A trailer tires.
The SP384 steer tire, available in standard and low-profile sizes, will drive traction and even, more uniform wear. With 18/32-inch tread depth and five-rib construction, treadwear is optimized.
The tire's pressure distribution groove also helps eliminate shoulder wear, and lateral grooves, along with “pin blades” — serrations on the shoulder — that enhance traction.
The retreadable tire is backed by a five-year casing, two-retread maximum limited warranty. A special steer-tire-challenge package offers a free retread for new tires that fail to meet mileage requirements.
Available in sizes 11R22.5 LR G, 11R24.5 LR G, 295/75R22.5 LR G, and 285/75R24.5 LR G, the SP384 steer tire is manufactured in Goodyear's Danville VA facility. E-mail Dave Wilkins at email@example.com for more information.
