Uniroyal Commercial Truck Tires announced that its LT40 long-haul/regional Class 8 trailer tire has met the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s SmartWay Technology Program requirements. The LT40 joins two existing Uniroyal SmartWay-verified tire offers, the LS24 and RS20.
Available in sizes 11R22.5, 11R24.5, 275/80R22.5 and 275/80R24.5, the tire is designed with StoneBlocker technology to protect the casing.
“Uniroyal products have been recognized by the U.S. EPA for low rolling resistance technology,” said Darlene Shepherd, business segment manager, Uniroyal Commercial Truck Tires. “The LT40 gives customers a choice when they select a commercial product that reduces emissions and improves fuel efficiency.”
The Uniroyal tire portfolio for heavy trucks, launched in January 2016, comprises six tread designs with 28 total offers. All Uniroyal tires are retreadable and feature DuraShield Construction, Uniroyal’s unique combination of pyramidal steel-belt construction, insulating belt-edge strips and a heavy-gauge inner liner.
