The Goodyear Tire & Rubber Co. has designed a Kelly Armorsteel KRH regional tire for pickup-and-delivery and school buses. The rib tire, developed for uniform and long-lasting wear in regional applications, is available in 11R22.5 and 11R24.5 sizes in an H load rating; a 295.75R22.5 size will be available in mid-June.
The company says the tread pattern provides superb traction on wet and dry roads, as circumferential grooves and lateral blading help displace water from under the tire, allowing for confident driving in wet conditions. The tire, designed with an enhanced belt package for multiple retreads, also has special tread compounding that helps it resist tread scrubbing and curbing in tight turns.
