TP Commercial Solutions LLC, the parent company of Pirelli, has announced the new Formula Driver II tire line, which is now available for sale for long-haul and regional all-position applications as part of the Formula Brand, a Pirelli Tier II brand that will be launched in the U.S. and Canada.
“The Formula Driver II tire is the first tire to launch in the Formula by Pirelli product line. It performed very well in testing across multiple environments and applications, delivering great value in mileage, handling and durability thanks to Pirelli SATT [Spiral Advanced Technology for Truck] technology,” said Clif Armstrong, president of TP Commercial Solutions LLC.
According to the company, these are the benefits of the new tire:
- Mileage: an optimized tread pattern featuring siping at the groove edges resists irregular wear;
- Safety: large circumferential grooves combined with the optimized structure provides better stability and handling on dry and wet conditions;
- Durability: stone ejector elements at the bottom of the grooves prevent stones trapping, improving retreadability and durability.
The Formula Driver II All Position rib will start with limited sizes and then expand to a full product line being developed over the coming months. It can be fitted on different axles of several types of vehicles.
