Goodyear Tire & Rubber Co. has released a new UniCircle retread for two of its wide-base truck tires to further extend the useful life of the tires.
“The recently introduced G392 SSD UniCircle and G394 SST UniCircle products offer many of the same performance benefits as their wide-base, new tire counterparts: the G392 SSD DuraSeal + Fuel Max and the G394 SST DuraSeal + Fuel Max,” said Brian Buckham, marketing manager, Goodyear Commercial Tire Systems. “In addition, they are offered with Goodyear’s exclusive UniCircle Technology, which helps enhance tread wear. UniCircle retreads are spliceless and adhere snugly to the tire’s casing to enhance traction and help reduce tearing and chunking.”
Because there is no cutting or splicing during the UniCircle tread application process, the retreaded tires are uniform and balanced, according to Buckham, leading to extended casing life and mileage.
The G392 SSD UniCircle has 24/32-in.tread depth and the G394 SST UniCircle comes with 12/32-in. tread depth. Both products’ tread designs are optimized to help provide a uniform footprint and confident handling, Goodyear said.
The G392 SSD UniCircle drive tread and the G394 SST UniCircle trailer tread are available to fit the 445/50R22.5 size. Goodyear also offers flat precure G392 SSD drive and G394 SST trailer retreads to fit the 445/50R22.5 and 455/55R22.5 sizes.
“By matching the G392 SSD UniCircle and G394 SST UniCircle retreads with G392 SSD drive and the G394 SST trailer casings containing Goodyear’s exclusive DuraSeal technology, retread performance should be just like that of a new tire,” said Buckham.
