BFGoodrich debuts two severe duty tires

November 30, -0001 Max Heine

BFGoodrich introduced two all-terrain tires for the severe service market Thursday at the Mid-America Trucking Show in Louisville, Kentucky.

The new BFGoodrich Cross Control S (steer) and Cross Control D (drive) tires target construction, logging and energy applications.

With serrated shoulders, the tires offer improved traction, said Adam Murphy, business-to-business vice president of marketing for BFGoodrich commercial truck tires. “Staggered shoulder blocks provide optimal traction to conquer most any condition,” he said.

For durability, the tires have full-coverage protector ply, tough compounds that improve cut and chip resistance, and thick sidewalls to counter impacts and abrasions.

Goodrich is offering a “work hard guarantee” for the Cross Control line. If a customer is not satisfied with the performance, or if a tire has to be taken out of service due to road hazards in its first six months or before it’s used 50 percent of its tread life, whichever comes first, Goodrich will reimburse 50 percent of its price.

The Cross Control S is available in sizes 11R22.5 and 11R24.5 (Load Range H), 315/80R22.5 (Load Range L) and starting in May, 385/65R22.5 (Load Range J) and 425/65R22.5 (Load Range L).
The Cross Control D is available in sizes 11R22.5 and 11R24.5 (Load Range H).
