NEW: Kormoran add patterns (not shown)
Kormoran are adding three new tread patterns to their latest range of commercial vehicle tyres.
Available exclusively from UK Michelin Truck Professional (MTP) dealerships, the new European-manufactured tyres mark the most significant Kormoran product launch in a decade.
The updated range, featuring an optimised contact patch, includes a 225/75 R 17.5 for medium weight rigid trucks and midi-coaches, and the 295/80 R 22.5 and 315/80 R 22.5 for heavy trucks and coaches.
Both the 225/75 and 315/80 steer tyres are categorised B in wet braking according to European tyre labelling regulation, while the 295/80 steer fitment, along with all three drive axle sizes, are rated C.
Richard Bezzant, Programme Development Manager at MTP, said: “Kormoran tyres are designed to be robust, reliable, re-groovable and re-treadable, giving operators a cost-effective tyre solution they can be confident in.”
The three new sizes join the 235/75 R 17.5 and 285/70 R 19.5 versions of the same Kormoran tyre, which were introduced during 2012.
