Kelly Tires has introduced the new Armorsteel KLS steer tire, which is said boasts uniform wear and long miles to removal. The tire will be offered in 11R22.5, 11R24.5, 295/75R22.5 and 285/75R24.5 sizes.

The KLS features an 18/32-inch tread depth in a five-rib design, with a barrel-shaped footprint, to optimize treadwear performance, according to Goodyear, which produces the Kelly Tires line. In addition, lateral sipes and slots on the three main ribs help provide excellent traction and handling.

All five ribs feature edge blades to enhance tread wear performance, noted the tire maker, and to help promote uniform wear and long life, a pressure-distribution groove is located on the outer edge of the shoulder rib.

The tire maker also said the KLS steer tire is “highly retreadable, thanks to a four-belt package which helps lower overall lifecycle costs for owner-operators and fleets.”
