AKRON, Ohio — Kelly Tires has announced the availability of the Armorsteel KLS – a new steer tire, which offers uniform wear and long miles to removal. The tire is offered in 11R22.5, 11R24.5, 295/75R22.5 and 285/75R24.5 sizes.
The KLS features an 18/32-inch tread depth in a five-rib design, with a barrel-shaped footprint, to optimize treadwear performance. Lateral sipes and slots on the three main ribs help provide excellent traction and handling. All five ribs feature edge blades to enhance treadwear performance. To help promote uniform wear and long life, a pressure distribution groove is located on the outer edge of the shoulder rib.
The KLS provides solid performance, and is highly retreadable, thanks to a four-belt package which helps lower overall lifecycle costs for owner-operators and fleets.
