Matching specific tire products to their intended application is the most important part of ensuring satisfactory tire performance over the long run. The key to doing this is to let the experts — tire suppliers and vendors who are most knowledgeable about the products — steer you in the right direction as far as selecting the correct tire.
To give you the best advice, they need detailed input from you about how you plan to use the product and what you expect in terms of service life, performance, residual value, and warranty.
On the following pages, FLEET OWNER once again presents its annual Truck Tire Application Chart. It lists the tires and treads that each of the leading manufacturers recommends for 13 specific wheel-position and service applications.
|Ultima by Goodyear||295|
