Goodyear introduces Dunlop steer tire

Posted on February 7, 2012

AKRON, Ohio — Goodyear Tire & Rubber Co. has expanded its portfolio of Dunlop brand truck tires with the new Dunlop SP348, an all-position steer tire for regional fleet, school bus, and pickup and delivery applications.

"Our dealers have been asking for more Dunlop brand tires to round out their line-up 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."

Features include a deep tread, which helps provide more miles to removal; a rugged casing design; enhanced shoulder rib for improved scrub resistance and protection against curbing abrasions; and stone ejectors in grooves, which help provide cut- and puncture-resistance for longer casing life.

The Dunlop SP348 currently is available in seven sizes: 11R22.5, 225/70R19.5, 245/70R19.5, 10R22.5, 12R22.5, 11R24.5 and 295/75R22.5.

Officials said two additional sizes — 285/75R24.5 and 255/70R22.5 — will be added during the second quarter of 2012.
