Goodyear Launches New Debica Truck Tyre Range
On-Road DRS2 steer and DRD2 drive tyres withall-season capability
Goodyear is launching a new range of Debica on-road truck tyres aimed at price sensitive fleets. The new Debica DRD2 drive and DRS2 steer tyres provide balanced performance with proven quality and significant improvements over their predecessors. The latest steer and drive ranges offer improved rolling resistance and are also compliant to European winter regulation including the Three Peak Mountain Snow Flake (3PMSF) symbol.
Comprising three Debica DRS2 steer tyres and three Debica DRD2 drive tyres, the range replaces the Debica DRS and DRD tyres of the same sizes, which will be phased out. Two steer sizes provide High Load capacity for modern trucks, particularly those with Euro VI engines, where front axle weights are high. All new Debica truck tyres are regroovable, and retreadable as mouldcure NextTread products.
The range complements the existing portfolio of Debica mixed service tyres (DMSS steer tyre, DMSD drive tyre and DMST trailer tyre), covering the most popular sizes required by the customer.
Debica truck tyres are designed and developed in Europe and manufactured by Goodyear’s production quality standards. They are available through Goodyear´s TruckForce network. TruckForce comprises more than 2000 service providers strategically located across Europe including well-known partners such as Vulco in France and Premio in Germany and other countries.
