Stay on the road longer
Keeping OTR tires maintained and running in optimum performance will help you get the longest life from your tires. The best way to do this? Control heat buildup.
Making sure that your OTR vehicle equipment is running within the speed rating of the tire will help minimize excessive heat buildup by running them at temperatures below the tire’s critical limit, also known as the maximum ton mile per hour (TMPH).
To help your drivers keep up with their daily production, it’s important that the tires you use are rated for the highest TMPH routes on your job site. We suggest pairing this with our B-TAG™ tire management tool to get precise monitoring that ensures your tires are operating at their peak.
