Uniroyal Brand Adds a New Pair of Commercial Truck Tire Sizes

The Uniroyal brand has added two new key sizes for the recently launched Uniroyal commercial-truck tires, including the Uniroyal RS20 — a SmartWay-verified regional all-position tire that is now available in a 255/70R22.5 size for regional pick-up and delivery vehicles and trailers.

In addition, 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 of 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 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.
