The Uniroyal LT40, a long-haul/regional, class-8 trailer tire, has met the requirements for the EPA's SmartWay Technology Program, Uniroyal Commercial Truck Tires reports. The LT40 joins two existing Uniroyal SmartWay-verified tire offers, the LS24 and RS20.
The Uniroyal LT40, a long-haul/regional, class-8 trailer tire, has met the requirements for the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s (EPA) SmartWay Technology Program, Uniroyal Commercial Truck Tires, a unit of Michelin America Truck Tires, reports. The LT40 joins two existing Uniroyal SmartWay-verified tire offers, the LS24 and RS20.

The Uniroyal LT40 is designed to combat irregular trailer tire wear for long-lasting performance. 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. The LS24 is a long-haul steer tire that features a sacrificial rib design and micro-siping to combat irregular wear. The RS20 is a regional steer/all-position tire that has tough solid shoulders to fight scrub.

“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. Uniroyal provides an affordable offer for every commercial truck tire position and application — from long-haul to regional to on-/off- road trucks, including dry van, flat bed, construction, and pick-up and delivery vocations, the company adds. 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.
