Goodyear Launches New Kelly Armorsteel KRH Tires

Mon June 02, 2008 - National Edition

The Goodyear Tire & Rubber Company has introduced a new Kelly Armorsteel KRH regional tire for pickup and delivery and school buses.

Available through Kelly dealers and truck stops, the new rib tire was developed for uniform and long-lasting wear in regional applications. Available in 11R22.5 and 11R24.5 sizes in an H load rating, the tire has an enhanced belt package for multiple retreads. The 295.75R22.5 size will be available in mid-June.

Bruce Woodruff, marketing manager of regional and light-truck commercial tires, said the Armorsteel KRH tread pattern provides superb traction on wet and dry roads, as circumferential grooves and lateral blading help displace water from under the tire, allowing for confident driving in wet conditions.

Special tread compounding helps the tire resist “tread scrubbing and curbing in tight turns,” Woodruff said.

“The Armorsteel KRH regional tire is the latest entry to fortify the Kelly commercial tire lineup. Kelly has always represented a good deal on a great tire. With its strong brand name and its value proposition, the KRH definitely differentiates Kelly from the competition,” he added.

Goodyear commercial tire systems offer complete products and services to the trucking and bus industries, including a full range of original equipment and replacement tires. In addition, the company’s cradle-to-grave tire and service network includes retreading, tire management tools and business solutions for tomorrow’s truck and bus fleets.
