Medium-Duty Steer Tire

The HSR2 Eco Plus medium-duty steer tire uses a fuel-efficient compound and has a four-rib tread design, which improves rolling resistance by 15 percent, the company says. The tire has a protective curb rib for high-scrub applications and patented groove geometry to reduce cracking and treading, as well as improved rolling resistance that provides better fuel economy, the company says.

Pressure Protection Valves

The one-way check pressure protection valves protect against leaks in air pressure from the braking system if an air line or valve in an air-operated accessory fails. The e-coated zinc diecast body prevents corrosion, and the Nitrile diaphragm provides durability, the company says. The valves can be used in air suspensions, air seats or cab isolation systems.
