Wear Resistant Tires — High Mileage And Durability

Wear resistant tires are the most demanded tires among truckers (mainly heavy duty trucks) because the wear resistant tire promises a longer lifespan and lesser cost per mile (more miles per tire). Truckers who want truly authentic wear resist, long life tires can purchase their resistant tires form well-known brand Kelly Tires. Kelly Tire is a signature brand of Goodyear Tire & Rubber Co. In the form of Kelly tires, Goodyear has introduced a new steer tire that offers fleets excellent miles-to-removal, with improved handling, resistance and retreadability. Lateral tread grooves improve traction while incorporating a design that promotes extended tread wear. The shoulder rib design includes a pressure distribution groove that will resist initiation of irregular shoulder wear and abrasion.

On the similar lines, Yokohama Tire Corp. has also taken the multiple-benefit approach in designing its new RY637 and RY537 tires. A stress-resist control groove reduces wear on the tire and suspension by minimizing pressure at the tread edge. Low-pressure results in reduced free rolling wear and resistance to uneven wear. Not only this, but unique stone ejector ribs prevent stones from reaching the bottom of the groove and therefore saves premature casing damage.

Bridgestone/Firestone the maker of most innovative tire in North American also introducing three new sizes to its lineup of Bridgestone R287 steer and Bridgestone M726 EL drive radials, already available in the popular 295/75R22.5 size. The Bridgestone R287 steer radial offers irregular abrasion resist technology for even wear, low abrasion and low costs. The new 11R22.5, 11R24.5 and 285/75R24.5 sizes are also built to deliver long tire life.
