Semperit Expand RUNNER Tyre Family

Semperit RUNNER T2 445/45 R 19.5”
 The recently launched Semperit RUNNER family of tyres has been met positively by companies that are placing considerable importance on attractive price-performance ratio. With this in mind, Semperit is now expanding its comprehensive truck tyre range in the area of trailer tyres with the RUNNER T2 in size 445/45 R 19.5” targeted for large-volume transport jobs requiring an internal load height of three metres in the trailer.


This tyre size is of particular interest for the so-called megatrailers and semi-trailers that offer a load volume of up to 100 m³ and require a low platform height in order to comply with the statutorily permitted total vehicle height.

In an industry where efficiency is always a top priority, the RUNNER T2 performs well with its small diameter and high mileage potential. The optimised tyre contour with a reinforced shoulder, the new tread design and the newly developed rubber compound of the RUNNER T2 lead to high mileage with optimised rolling resistance. This is also expressed in the EU label value “B” for fuel efficiency. The trailer tyre is also marked as an M+S tyre and meets the statutory requirement for use in winter conditions.


Thanks to its robust carcass design, the Semperit RUNNER T2 445/45 R 19.5” is retreadable and is thus a cost-effective, sustainable solution, even beyond the lifetime of the first tyre.
