The only critical component that bears the most wear and tear on the road and keeps the vehicle on road is the TYRE.
They play such an important role that’s why purchasing tyres should be done with great care, especially when it comes to commercial tyres.
The role of commercial truck tyres has grown in importance as industrialization has progressed. Commercial fleet tyres carry the majority of the load, transmit power to the road surface, and absorb road irregularities to deliver goods safely and securely. The tyres play an important role in steering these large vehicles, applying braking force at the appropriate time, and maintaining peak performance over thousands of kilometres.
Types of Tyres
The tyres you choose will directly impact traction, tread life, and fuel efficiency whether you are driving a light truck, heavy-duty trailer, tipper, or transporter. Truck tyres are classified into three types: Highway Terrain (H/T), All-Terrain (A/T), and Mud-Terrain (M/T).
Truck tyre Brands
Commercial tyre manufacturers all over the world are constantly working to incorporate the latest technologies into their products to prevent premature wear and tear, maximize fuel economy, and provide the best handling and stability on the road. MRF, JK Tyre, Apollo, CEAT, Michelin, and Continental are among the best truck tyre brands on the market.
Life of tyres
The average lifespan of a truck tyre is determined by the type of vehicle, driving style, and driving conditions. A normal truck's tyre life is between 40,000 and 70,000 kilometres, a heavy-duty truck is around 80,000 kilometres, and a long-haul truck is around 1.5 lakh kilometres.
