  – The design is ideal for transport services that requires a high level performance. 

Vipal Rubber is in constant pursuit of greater efficiency and profitability for fleet owners and carriers. That’s why the Latin American leader and one of the top worldwide manufacturers of tire retreading products always stays attuned to new solutions for the segment. Its latest tire tread, the DV-RT4, arrives in the market with this concept: improvement. The new version of its exclusive design, recommended for highway transport, has received adjustments that delivers even better performance, making it suitable for regional use as well.

One of the product’s new features are the ties between lugs to provide better balance and stability in severe conditions. Ideal for powerful vehicles that place high demand on tires, the DV-RT4 offers high mileage due to its wider contact area with the ground. It is recommended for drive axles in transport services that requires a high level performance.

The nevipalw DV-RT4 also stands out for its abrasion resistance and uniform wear throughout its life. It also provides better grip on slippery surfaces, such as mud and snow. The cut markers represent another distinctive feature, indicating the proper cut point on the tread itself, which helps to have a better looking at the join.

“We strive to offer products with a wide range of use and benefits for a variety of segments. In the case of the new DV-RT4, we’ve made some key adjustments to it in order to enhance the performance, making it also suited to use in the regional segment while maintaining the excellent results, already well-known, in the highway segment,” explains Henrique Brito, Technology and Quality Manager at Vipal Rubber.
