Pirelli Launches Two New Truck Tires in United States

The Italian tire manufacturer introduced two new truck tires, i.e. TG:85 and FG:85 in the United States market

United States: The commercial arm of Pirelli Tire North America Inc., TP Commercial Solutions LLC, has recently unveiled two new truck tires, TG:85 and FG:85, under Pirelli brand.

The TG:85 tire can be used in multipurpose vehicles which demand high stability in tread-wear, especially in drive position. The tread pattern in TG:85 tire is inclined with firm shoulder blocks and an intense central rib to resist tears and wide-deep grooves for optimum friction as well as grip on wet road surface.

The FG:85, on other hand, is an all position tire for mixed use vehicles, mainly operating on construction project sites which requires strong tire structure and an extreme resistance to wear & tear. The FG:85 tire is designed with an ability for retreadability.

“The G:85 Series, incorporating the Pirelli Brands most advanced tire technology and 140 year industry expertise, are true workhorses for mixed use vehicles. We offer an all position rib product and an aggressive drive companion that are both designed to enhance structural integrity, while resisting extreme stress factors and laceration”, says Clif Armstrong, president of TP Commercial Solutions. He also commented, “Equipped with a durable casing for multiple retreads, both tires were placed in the most demanding service environment tests possible and performed at the highest levels versus the competition.”

Besides that, the TG:85 and FG:85 would be available in 11R22.5 and 11R24.5 sizes in the market.

TechSci Research depicts that Pirelli tire brand ranks among the top players in the United States market. Also, by launching new truck tires with an improved design under its popular brand, the company would be able to penetrate a huge chunk of consumers specific to commercial vehicle segment across the region. In addition, it is expected that with the launch of such an advance product in the United States market, the sale of Pirelli brand tires would eventually rise over the coming period.

According to a recent report published by TechSci Research, “United States Tire Market Forecast & Opportunities, 2021”, demand for tires in the United States is forecast to grow at a CAGR of over 5%, in volume terms, during 2016-2021. The vehicle fleet of the country is dominated by passenger car segment, followed by light commercial vehicles, medium and heavy commercial vehicles, off-the-Road (OTR) vehicles and two-wheeler segment. As a result, the passenger car tire segment held the largest volume share in the country’s tire market in 2015, and its dominance is anticipated to continue during the forecast period as well. Leading global tire companies operating in the United States include Bridgestone, Goodyear, Michelin, Cooper, Continental, Sumitomo, Hankook, Yokohama, etc. The report also portrays huge potential of tire market in Southeast and Midwest regions of the country. The vast demand for tires from these regions can mainly be imputed to the large automobile fleet size, high population density coupled with the rapid urbanization in the area.
