Ralson RTR71 Excels on Spread Axles

Jun 20, 2024 | Products

Spread axles are tough on tires. With the distance between the axles, there is significant lateral force, which can result in shoulder abrasion, especially when being pulled through a tight turn.

Trailer tires for this application need to be engineered to resist this type of wear, while still delivering high fuel efficiency, mileage and a good casing.

The Ralson RTR71 commercial truck tire is built tough for spread axle trailer use. Produced in one of the world’s most advanced TBR plants, the RTR71 features a robust casing design to resist cuts and chips. Other features include:

  • 16/32nds of tread to handle high scrub and severe torque conditions
  • Corrugated cooling fins ensure better heat dissipation for increased casing life.
  • A chamfered solid shoulder counters lateral forces in high scrub applications for even shoulder wear.
  • A balanced rib ratio evenly distributes pressure for high mileage and excellent drive comfort.
  • The RTR71’s wide 4-belt package provides uniform ground contact for excellent impact absorption and casing retreadability.

Backed by a 7 year/3 retread warranty, it is available in the 11R22.5 and 295/75R22.5 sizes.
