BFGoodrich Commercial Truck Tires has introduced the ST244 steer tire and TR144 trailer tire to its redesigned line of commercial truck tires. The tires feature a new sidewall design.
Along with the new aesthetics, the ST244 tire features a five-rib four-groove tread design for added water evacuation and also provides a decoupling groove designed to give the tire an enhanced ability to resist irregular wear. The more than 1,900 miniature sipes deliver excellent traction and combine with the decoupling groove in resisting irregular wear in the tread pattern, the company says. The ST244 tire’s casing possesses an all-steel construction for added retreadability. The ST244 tire is available in 11R22.5, 11R24.5, 275/80R22.5 and 275/80R24.5 sizes.
The TR144 tire showcases see-through grooves designed to improve wet traction and offers a five-rib design to help resist irregular wear on free rolling axles. The shoulder grooves are engineered to further improve resistance to irregular wear, while the all-steel casing construction provides added retreadability. The TR144 tire is available in 11R22.5, 11R24.5, 275/80R22.5 and 275/80R24.5 sizes.
