AKRON, Ohio -- Goodyear has come out with two new retreads for wide-base tires, which it says will extend the service life of the tires.
“The recently introduced G392 SSD UniCircle and G394 SST UniCircle products offer many of the same performance benefits as their wide-base, new tire counterparts: the G392 SSD DuraSeal + Fuel Max and the G394 SST DuraSeal + Fuel Max,” said Brian Buckham, marketing manager, Goodyear Commercial Tire Systems.
“In addition, they are offered with Goodyear’s exclusive UniCircle Technology, which helps enhance tread wear. UniCircle retreads are spliceless and adhere snugly to the tire’s casing to enhance traction and help reduce tearing and chunking.”
Because there is no cutting or splicing during the UniCircle tread application process, the retreads are uniform and balanced, according to Goodyear. “This helps extend casing life and mileage,” Buckham said.
The G392 SSD UniCircle boasts a 24/32-inch tread depth, while the G394 SST UniCircle comes with a 12/32-inch tread depth.
“By matching the G392 SSD UniCircle and G394 SST UniCircle retreads with G392 SSD drive and the G394 SST trailer casings containing Goodyear’s exclusive DuraSeal Technology, retread performance should be just like that of a new tire,” said Buckham.
Goodyear’s DuraSeal technology automatically seals punctures up to a quarter-inch in diameter.
