Uniroyal Expands TH40 Trailer Range

Uniroyal TH40

Uniroyal is expanding its trailer tyre line TH 40 with new 17.5” tyres for low platform trailers in sizes 215/75, 235/75 and 245/70.

New 17.5" Range from Uniroyal

The high-quality tyres for combined regional and long-haul transport offer high durability, impressive mileage, and optimal traction even on wet roads.

Moving a lot of weight, tyres for this application must be highly durable. Backed by Uniroyals new 17.5” TH 40 low-platform trailer tyres, transport professionals can face heavy-load transport with confidence. Specifically designed for carrying high loads, the TH 40 low-platform trailer tyres reliably deliver high performance in terms of durability, robustness and mileage.

The TH 40 low-platform trailer tyres’ high wear volume helps ensure high-mileage performance, whilst the bead of the casing was reinforced to ensure increased durability and very good retreadability. A special rubber compound makes them exceptionally resistant to cutting damage and a newly developed profile design offers outstanding safety on wet roads, a characteristic that is in keeping with the tradition of the Uniroyal brand. For their wet-grip performance, Uniroyal’s TH 40 in the 17.5” sizes have been assigned EU label “B” (235/75 and 245/70) and “C” (215/75) and also bear the letters “M+S”. The tyres can easily withstand changing loads thanks to their optimised cord density and their special inner liner prevents gradual loss of pressure.
