Pirelli UK to Release New Regional Haul Tyres
2007 has been an exciting year in the development of Pirelli’s commercial vehicle tyres, company representatives told Tyres & Accessories. Originally designed for the long haul sector of the market, the Amaranto series’ success has led to the extension of SATT technology and enabled Pirelli to develop a new range of tyres for regional haul.
Designed for 17.5” rims, the new FR85 and TR85 Amaranto are due for release in the second half of 2007. Key features of these new products are said to be: excellent mileage; optimum grip; increased tread width; reinforced sidewalls to resist impact; improved tyre integrity and prolonged tyre life.
By extending the existing range of Amaranto tyres into 60 and 70 series; and with the introduction of the new FR85 & TR85 17.5”, Pirelli is aiming to establish a firm foundation on which to build, enabling the future production and development of the highest quality tyres for the transport industry.
Graham Hutchison, Director Truck Business Unit, says Pirelli is a leading tyre brand synonymous with high performance products: “The quality and investment in R&D is also carried over into the Truck Business Unit and is reflected in our investment in the Excellent new FR85 & TR85 Amaranto range which will give Pirelli Truck a competitive edge in the short and medium haul sectors.”
