Truck tyres by area of use: all you need to know

The range of truck tyres includes many different types, sizes and tread patterns. This makes sense, as truck tyres can be used for many different applications! When choosing the right truck tyre, you should take several factors into consideration: will long distances be driven? Or will it be short distances? Is the road surface flat? Or do you often drive on off-road terrain? Below I will explain a few applications and show you the tyre that can be used!

International transport

Driving long distances at high speeds is an important factor in international transport. You need a tyre that has high wear resistance and offers excellent driving performance.

The best steer-axle tyre to be used for this purpose is the Magna MHSL, especially for long haul high-speed driving conditions. Followed by the Magna MHDL as a drive-axle tyre and the Magna MHTL as trailer tyre.

Regional and local transport

A typical feature of tyres used in regional and local transport is that they regularly accelerate and decelerate. These tyres cover fewer miles then international transport, but they must be safe and optimized for medium haul operating conditions.

The best tyre to be used for this purpose is the Magna MHSR, a steer-axle tyre. The Magna MSR can be used here as drive-axle tyre, which is an all position tyre. Followed by a Magna MTR, as trailer-tyre, which is optimized for regional distance traffic.

Intensive construction site

There are also truck tyres used as construction tyre. These tyres are specially designed to perform well on many different types of surface, such as wet and very dry surfaces.

Do you want to use truck tyres on your construction site? Check out the Magna MSC as an all position tyre! Both tyres are designed to ensure excellent traction in on- and off road construction surfaces.

On- and Off Road

Finally, we have the truck tyres that are specially designed for use as both on- and off road tyres. These tyres must perform on both muddy and sandy terrain. For this purpose there is an all position tyre, the Magna MSO. But truck tyres must also perform on wet or snowy roads, for which there is the Magna MSO-3. Also an all position tyre.
