2014 Truck Tire Application Guide

Feb. 19, 2014

Tires and treads have never been so important to a trucking fleet.  With greenhouse gas regulations and fuel-efficiency standards ever tightening, the focus on the role a tire plays in a vehicle’s mpg has never been greater.  Fleet managers, though, cannot just put any tire on their vehicles.  Tire and tread suppliers are working closely with OEMs and fleets alike to ensure vehicles are fitted with the proper tire to maximize mpg, retreadability and lifecycle costs.  You can assist them by providing accurate details about your vehicles and the jobs they perform on a daily basis.  Fleet Owner presents its annual Truck Tire Application Chart, where you will find tires and treads from the leading manufacturers, along with manufacturer recommendations for 13 specific wheel-position and service applications.
