New drive tire from Pirelli

Updated May 11, 2017

Formula Brand Pirelli tireTP Commercial Solutions has added a long-haul and regional all position tire to its Formula Brand, a Pirelli Tier II brand launching in the U.S. and Canada.

The Formula Driver II tire is the first tire to launch in the Formula by Pirelli product line.

“It performed very well in testing across multiple environments and applications, delivering great value in mileage, handling and durability thanks to Pirelli SATT technology” says TP Commercial Solutions President Clif Armstrong.

The SATT technology used to design the structure of Formula Driver II is a Pirelli trademarked process that stands for Spiral Advanced Technology for Truck, engineered to enhance uniform wear, tire life, handling and retreadability.

Engineered with Pirelli’s over 140 years of experience in Research and Development excellence, Formula Driver II offers three distinct benefits:

  1. Mileage: an optimized tread pattern featuring siping at the groove edges resists irregular wear
  2. Safety: large circumferential grooves combined with the optimized structure provides better stability and handling on dry and wet conditions
  3. Durability: stone ejector elements at the bottom of the grooves prevent stones trapping, improving retreadability and durability.

The Formula Driver II All Position rib will start with limited sizes and then expand to a full product line being developed over the coming months. It can be fitted on different axles of several types of vehicles.
