Interstate adds to Sierra truck-bus tyre line
Interstate Tire & Rubber has expanded the Sierra truck and bus radial range in Europe with the launch of two further tread patterns, the Sierra SR526 and Sierra SR805. The TBR programme now contains nine different patterns and a total of more than 60 sizes.
According to company vice-president Theo de Vries, the Sierra TBR line is well-received in the European market and has gained positive feedback regarding its quality, mileage and retreadability. He adds that a solid distribution network now exists for the Interstate brand in Europe.
The Sierra SR526 is an M+S marked, on/off-road tyre. It is available in the popular 13R22.5 and 315/80R22.5 sizes and offers traction and flotation on varied terrains such as sand, snow and mud. Interstate says the tyre features a cut-resistant compound, self-cleaning tread pattern and stone ejectors. The full-width steel belts and tri-polymer casing offers great durability and mileage, adds Interstate.
The SR805 trailer tyre is available in sizes 385/65R22.5, 385/55R22.5, 425/65R22.5 and 445/65R22.5. The size 385/65R22.5 version has received Smartway certification in the US and wears the M+S symbol. Interstate says the new and improved casing technology found in the SR805 offers great mileage and even wear during the tyre’s entire lifecycle. The Interstate-ISST compound used in the tyre is said to lower rolling resistance.
Interstate Tire & Rubber states that it will maintain a focus on lowering fuel consumption, and the tyre maker hints that “more exciting news” will be announced at the Reifen 2016 show in Essen this coming May.
