Uniroyal adds drive tire

Michelin North America has launched a new Uniroyal-brand drive tire, the LD10 that’s SmartWay-verified in long-haul use. It’s available in two sizes, 275/80R22.5 with load range G and 11R22.5 with load range H.

The new tire joins Uniroyal’s LS24 steer tire and LT40 trailer, all of them SmartWay-approved. They provide affordable options for every commercial truck tire position and application, from long-haul to regional to on-/off-road, including dry van, flat bed, construction, and pickup-and-delivery vocations. There are now seven tread designs in the brand’s offering.

The LD10 tire has what the maker calls “an enhanced fuel-efficient compound designed for long, even wear.” DuraShield construction, at the heart of every Uniroyal tire, is said to provide durability and retreadability. Three strategic features — pyramidal steel belts, insulating belt edge strips, and a heavy-gauge inner liner — work together to promote endurance and protect the tire’s casing.

The tires are backed by a four-year limited warranty. Certain tires used in long-haul and regional applications are also covered by a one-retread limited warranty. With this new addition, the Uniroyal commercial truck tire portfolio, launched in Canada in 2015, now consists of seven tread designs.
