Vipal Launches New Version of DV-RT4 Tread


Vipal has announced the introduction of an updated and improved version of its proprietary DV-RT4 tread design. The new version of the design, recommended for highway transport, has received adjustments that deliver improved 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 tyres, 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 of performance.

The new 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 provide a better look at the join.
