Truck News

AKRON, Ohio — Borrowing from the Goodyear Tire and Rubber Companys commercial steer-tire leadership, the 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.

The SP384 steer tire delivers to Dunlop dealers proven technology, said Larry Tucker, marketing manager for line-haul tires.

According to Tucker, 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 tires pressure distribution groove also helps eliminate shoulder wear, and lateral grooves, along with pin blades serrations on the shoulder which help enhance traction.

Thanks to special tread compounding and tread and shoulder design, weve leapfrogged the SP384s predecessor in the Dunlop lineup, Tucker said. But that was only the beginning. We beefed up the tire casing a four-belt package that features high-tensile steel on the lower three belts and a coated top belt to resist harmful moisture.

The retreadable tire is backed by a five-year casing, two-retread maximum limited warranty. Officials are so confident in the new tires performance that its backed by a special steer-tire-challenge package, which 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 Goodyears Danville, Va. facility.

The new tire gives the brand a complete portfolio for long-haul applications, joining Dunlops SP453 drive and SP181A trailer tires.
