Poor traction is one of the biggest threats fleets face in climates that experience sleet, snow and ice. Unexpected downtime always acts as a pilfer to a fleet’s pocketbook, Winter tires are one of the most effective components for keeping trucks off the side of the road.
The RSD3 is a drive-position tire featuring a dynamic tread design for ultimate traction. Built to handle harsh winter conditions in all types of applications, this unique product offers superior durability, performance and retreadability. Check out this brief video on the RSD3.
The RSD3 ultra-premium drive-position tire is specifically manufactured to handle the stresses trucks encounter in severe winter weather. It features a tread block design for maximum traction in the snow, in addition to superior durability and retreadability. The tire’s open shoulder design offers added cleaning ability in harsh winter conditions. The RSD3 also features zig-zag patterned siping, which adds a higher level of traction and stability in the snow than non-siped tires.
IWhen you think about a commercial vehicle carrying tens of thousands of pounds, the only thing separating that vehicle from the road is the tires. Winter tires have specific features that provide for added traction and evacuation of snow and ice. So when you think about it from a safety perspective, the cost of swapping tires seasonally really pales in comparison to the damage/cost potentially caused by an accident.
For fleets that are new to spec’ing winter tires on their trucks, the thought of replacing the tires on every wheel-end of every truck can be an expensive and intimidating proposition. However, a truck spec’d with winter tires on only the drive axle still experiences the numerous benefits these tires provide.
The torque comes from the drive axles, so this would be where the design elements of winter tires shine in terms of sipes, the better bite of the road surface and grooves designed to evacuate debris.
In particular, trucks in Classes 4, 5 and 6 running local routes – especially those in the snow belt – should typically be equipped with an aggressive set of winter tires for optimum performance and safety.
The RSD3 is available in three key sizes:
- 11R22.5, 16 PR, H load range
- 1R24.5, 16 PR, H load range
- 225/70R19.5, 1 PR, G load range
