BFGoodrich has expanded its truck tyre range with the addition of new two off-road tyres for steer and drive axles.

The new Cross Control 2 – the company’s first second-generation product to be introduced into the UK and Irish markets – is aimed at tippers and mixers working in the construction industry and has been designed to cope with the tough surfaces of their off-road environment.

Available in 315/80 R22.5 size, the new tyre gets a 3PMSF (Three Peak Mountain Snowflake) marking and is claimed to offer up to 40% improved fuel consumption as a steer tyre when compared to its predecessor and a 25% improvement as a drive axle tyre. Both tyres can be regrooved and have been designed to be retreaded too.

Martin Thompson, BFGoodrich Go To Market manager, says: “BFGoodrich was a new brand when it launched into the European truck tyre market in 2017, but has been gaining traction quickly and we’re continually investing in developing our range of products. The launch of the Cross Control 2 is a key development for the UK and Irish markets – introducing an improved offer for firms operating in the demanding on/off-road construction sector, where uptime and longevity are particularly important.”

“A great deal of investment and testing against rival manufacturers has gone into the delivery of these new tyres and we are confident that, whatever the challenges, the Cross Control 2 will get the job done,” added Thompson.
