Linglong TBR tyres gain SmartWay verification
Shandong Linglong’s truck and bus radial tyres have gained EPA SmartWay verification for 18 of its Linglong and Leao brand truck tyres in the USA for low rolling resistance. The verified tyres include steer, drive and trailer axle applications.
Working closely with the Environmental Protection Agency, Smartway is designed to improve energy efficiency and reduce greenhouse gas emissions. Although this is a qualification developed in the United States, SmartWay is increasingly used as a technical qualification and selling tool across the globe as operators increasingly focus on the fuel efficiency of new truck tyres. Linglong said that the number of approvals is a testament to its product quality and growing strength in the TBR segment.
