BFGoodrich Releases Activan Range
BFGoodrich has launched its new Activan range of van tyres that have been specifically designed to cope with the demanding operating conditions faced by tyres fitted to these vehicles. Based on BFGoodrich motorsport technology developed through the company’s World Rally Championship participation, the Activan tyres are built to offer an excellent level of wet and dry grip while providing sturdy damage resistance.
The tyre’s tread area is made up of large tread blocks for maximum grip in dry conditions. There are also a high number of sipes in the tread pattern that cut through surface water on wet roads, offering grip and safety when the British weather begins doing what it does best. The tread compound selected for the Activan is one that provides the type of durability and resistance to wear commercial users rely upon, and reinforced sidewalls featuring two casing plies protect this often scuffed area from kerbing damage.
The BFGoodrich Activan range is available in 14 sizes from 175/65 R 14 to 225/65 R 16, a size range covering more than 70 per cent of the UK and Irish van markets.
