Firenza offers patterns for numerous positions and applications
The Firenza brand has been established in the UK truck market for a number of years now and the range, which is produced by Sumo Tires, is steadily growing. Firenza commercial vehicle tyres are said to be backed by the latest production technology and include design features such as a solid shoulder area construction, a zero angle steel band that prevents irregular wear plus a tread groove to combat casing damage and stone retention.
The Firenza SSR05A pattern for steering and trailer positions incorporates a wide and flat tread profile that is said to give impressive mileage and smooth handling; at present the range covers sizes from 11R22.5 through to 315/80R22.5. A choice of patterns – SSD08, SSM07 and SST07 – is available for drive axle fitments. All of these are described as offering a unique tread pattern for extensive traction control on all road surfaces. The SSD08 is available in size from 11R22.5 to 315/80R22.5, the SSM07 from 900R20 to 1200R20 and the SST07 in size 13R22.5.
All-position fitments are catered for by the Firenza SSM07A, which is available in sizes from 11R22.5 through to 315/80R22.5, whilst traction patterns SSM10 and SHD48 are available in sizes 13R22.5 through to 1000R20. For Super Singles, Firenza offers two patterns, the SSR055A and SST066; both are currently available in three sizes – 385/65R22.5, 425/65R22.5 and 445/65R22.5. Off-road applications are catered for by the SSM10 pattern; this comes in sizes 13R22.5, 295/80R22.5 and 315/80R22.5.
“Firenza truck tyres are specifically designed to sit in the mid-market sector, providing a high quality and affordable alternative to premium brands,” commented Rob Henderson, Firenza’s business manager for the UK and Europe. “Continuing reports of excellent service performance have been well–received.” UK distribution of the Firenza commercial vehicle range is exclusively through West Midlands-based International Tyres.
