The Dunlop brand of truck tires has added a new all-position steer tire for regional fleet, school bus, and pickup and delivery applications.

Part of the Goodyear Tire & Rubber Co., the Dunlop SP348 features a deep tread for more miles to removal, a rugged casing design, and enhanced shoulder rib for improved scrub resistance and protection against curbing. The tire also has stone ejectors in grooves to provide added cut- and puncture resistance.

“Our dealers have been asking for more Dunlop brand tires to round out their lineup of products,” said Donn Kramer, director of product marketing, Goodyear Commercial Tire Systems. “The new Dunlop SP348 is a great ‘all-around player’ and has been designed for optimal performance in tough regional and delivery truck applications, as well as on school buses.”

The Dunlop SP348 is available in seven sizes: 11R22.5, 225/70R19.5, 245/70R19.5, 10R22.5, 12R22.5, 11R24.5, and 295/75R22.5. Two sizes – 285/75R24.5 and 255/70R22.5 – will be added during the second quarter of 2012.
