Double Coin and CMA say the Double Coin RT606+ solid-shoulder regional steer tire takes the core specifications of the 2006-released RT606 and upgrades it to enhance performance and durability for the regional pickup-and-delivery trucking segment.
The tire has a 22/32-inch tread depth, with 23 percent more usable tread than most normal steer position tires, according to the companies. Special features to enhance performance in high-scrub applications include extra sipes in the tread area for higher traction, water dispersion and even wear; platform stone ejectors to reduce stone drilling in the casing and preserve retreadability; wide shoulders to enhance maneuverability and deliver even footprint pressure; and special tread compounds to fight scrub and irregular wear.
Tire sizes include 11R22.5/14, 11R24.5/14, 295/75R22.5/14, 285/75R24.5/14, 11R22.5/16 and 11R24.5/16. For more information, go to www.doublecoin-us.com.
