New Dunlop Commercial Tires Expand into Full Lineup

April 4, 2006

AKRON, OHIO – The Goodyear Tire & Rubber Company is rolling out new tires and sizes in mixed-service to go along with its full line of Dunlop line-haul, regional and urban tires.Mixed-service tires, which can be used on- and off-road, feature severe-service tread compounds and improved belt packages for improved resistance to cutting, chipping, and tearing when the tire leaves the roadway. The tire’s open lug design provides tread edges for grip, and yet, tire technology is used to deliver ride comfort and quietness on pavement, company officials said.Two new mixed-service commercial tires – the Dunlop SP831 and SP931 – and two new sizes for the SP581 mixed-service tire line come on top of one of the most comprehensive series of consumer tire launches in the company’s history.In the past 16 months, Dunlop North America has introduced seven new passenger-car, light-truck, and race tires.Last year, the company added commercial tire capacity at its plant in Buffalo, N.Y., to enable the Dunlop expansion.
