New KD72 Design from Kartindo

KD 72

Kartindo Rubber has expanded its product range with a new tread design available in 5 sizes.

Kartindo Extends Tread Range

KD72 is designed specifically for secondary sinuous roads and steep hills. It features two longitudinal ribs on the shoulder edge with two central staggered ribs. This provides excellent traction without compromising rolling resistance on paved roads.

Produced using Kartindo’s K-Premier rubber compound, KD72 meets the demands of extremely competitive markets where low cost-per-km is a given expectation. With 5 sizes available from 210mm to 250mm widths, it caters to major tyre sizes from 11.00R20 to 315/80R22.5. This is part of Kartindo’s continuous effort to expand their product lines to meet the growing needs of customers in the retread market.
