New Semperit Midi-Trailer Tyre
Semperit has introduced a new 385/55 R 22.5 tyre for midi-trailers, the “EuroTrailer”. This tyre is the first in the brands new Euro product range and offers the benefit of around 5 cubic meters more cargo volume – and reportedly better mileage – for heavy road freight. The new EuroTrailer is available now in the 385/55 R 22.5 size with 160/-K and 158/-L indices.
A conventional trailer, i.e. a trailer with standard 385/65 R 22.5 tyres, has an internal height of 2.70m. The 385/55 R 22.5 version of the new Semperit “EuroTrailer” allows an additional internal height of at least 10cm and therefore increases the possible cargo volume by up to 5m³.
The widened and optimized tread of the low-section construction distributes the ground pressure more evenly over a larger area and thus reduces the normal deformation of the tyre while rolling. The new tyre thus reduces the rolling resistance of the trailer wheels considerably, thereby lowering fuel consumption. One further advantage of the optimized ground pressure distribution is smoother wear, reportedly helping to gain a noticeable increase in mileage.
