The new range of light tonnage steer and drive truck tires from Dunlop are said to offer good traction and durability in all applications. Available in 17.5in and 19.5in rim diameters, the SP346 and SP446 lines feature the latest design technology with robust casing construction – ensuring operational versatility and reliability.

The tires are also said to be suitable for fitment on electric and hybrid trucks. In such applications, the higher torque demands create additional stress on the tires.

The SP346 and SP446 lines respectively replace the SP344 and SP444 range. The SP346 steer tire and SP446 drive tire lines each comprise six sizes for 17.5in rims and four for 19.5in, making a total of 20 new tires in all.

“The new Dunlop SP346 and SP446 17.5in and 19.5in tires complement the successful 22.5in range and offer high mileage, strong traction and durability in all applications including long distance operations, regional distribution and in urban conditions,” commented Benjamin Willot, director of marketing for commercial tires Europe, Dunlop.

“These tires not only offer peace of mind for fleets but also predict future changes including stricter winter tire regulations and the increasing use of hybrid and electric vehicles. The SP346 and SP446 are ready for whatever’s ahead.”
