Firenza reports truck tyre product innovation
Singapore-based international contract tyre producer – Firenza are established in the UK and Europe as a supplier of value and mid-range truck and bus tyres. According to the company, the Firenza TBR range is manufactured within “leading international production facilities in China and Vietnam”.
The Firenza SSR05A Steer pattern incorporates a wider and flatter tread profile to ensure increased mileage levels plus the SSD08 Steer provides a unique tread pattern giving impressive improved traction control. Whilst the SSM10 offers a distinctly rugged tread pattern that has been specifically produced for more aggressive driving conditions, the SSM07 pattern is suited for the all position market sector through its special design for trailer applications. Three reasonably new TBR patterns from Firenza– the STV55, STV06 and STV09 are also available in a variety of sizes.
In the super single market Firenza provides three different patterns – the SSR055A, SST066 and SSR065 with both the SSR055A and SST066 incorporating a solid shoulder construction for a higher level of reduction in early tread wear along with a particularly hard tread rubber compound to ensure extensive mileage performance.
At the same time Firenza also presents an all-new range of urban bus tyres which have been specially designed and produced for all-position buses. The Firenza SSU05 pattern includes a reinforced sidewall that offers protection against kerb damage plus a durable casing construction for “several life cycles for the tyre”. Finally the SSU500 has a specifically designed tread pattern to give outstanding grip and mileage return. The Firenza SSU05 is currently available in size 275/70R22.5 and the SSU500 in size 305/70R22.5.
