LOUISVILLE, KY. BFGoodrich Commercial Truck Tires introduced the ST244 steer tire and TR144 trailer tire here at the Mid-America Trucking Show. Both tires feature a new sidewall design and an all-steel casing for improved retreadability, the tire maker said.
According to BFGoodrich, the ST244 features a five-rib, four-groove tread design for water evacuation and a decoupling groove for resisting irregular wear. The TR144’s see-through grooves improve we traction and the design helps resist irregular wear, the company said.
