The CV Show 2016 at the NEC in Birmingham, which runs from April 26 to 28, will see Continental presenting a selection of tyre brands from it’s portfolio. These brands will be further developed throughout 2016 and 2017.
Heading up Barum’s commercial vehicle tyre range is the 200 R series, a range of tyres for trucks and buses that offers high quality at an affordable price. The 315/70 R22.5 BF200 R will be previewed at the CV Show and be available in June 2016 along with the drive-axle tyre BD200 R. Furthermore the 295/80 R22.5 BF200 R & BD200 R along with a 385/65 R22.5 BT200 R trailer tyre will be available mid 2016.
The steer axle tyre BF200 R and drive axle tyre BD200 R, available since last year in size 315/80 R22.5, boasts both high mileage and consistent safety, thanks to the enhanced composition of the rubber compound and the redesigned pattern on the tread.
These robust, high-performance tyres offer a low-cost alternative for truck and bus operators. The tyres demonstrate excellent service life and offer reliable handling in both regional distribution and long-distance applications.
The Barum 200 R series enjoys a particularly durable casing thanks to the reinforced steel cord beads. The special liner prevents loss of compressed air and combined with the regroovable tread and also contributes to a long service life. All Barum tyres in the 200 R series feature a retreadable casing, which extends the service life of the tyre, while also increasing efficiency within the fleet.
Both the steer axle tyre BF200 R and the drive axle tyre BD200 R benefit from redesigned tread geometry in the tread layer, which has considerably increased the mileage capability of both tyres. The new tread compound guarantees safe handling and driving behavior in the long term, even on wet roads.
Barum's steer axle tyre BF200 R and the drive axle tyre BD200 R are proof that optimal traction and cost-efficient levels of fuel consumption are not necessarily a contradiction. Both the BF200 R and the BD200 R have the M+S label. The BD200 R also has the "Snowflake" label (3 peak mountain snowflake, 3PMSF), demonstrating that it takes into account the special requirements for drive axle tyres.
The 315/70 R22.5 and 295/80 R22.5 steer and drive axle tyres also offer a higher load rating, meeting the new requirements for Euro 6 vehicles. The reinforced bead allows both tyres to effectively withstand varying loads and their improved wear behavior increases driving comfort.
