How to Select the Right Tires for Medium-Duty Truck Applications

In a recent interview conducted by Work Truck, Mike Macik, Strategic Consulting Analyst and certified world-class technician for ARI, discusses the importance of tire selection for medium-duty trucks.  Tire selection for medium-duty trucks directly impacts fuel economy, vehicle performance, and tire replacement cycles. Any mismatch between the tire specifications and how the truck is used will lead to increased instances of vehicle downtime and higher overall operational costs.  Macik notes, “When choosing the correct tire tread, it’s best to think about the roads traveled and the vehicle’s application. Don’t over-prepare for the worst — focus instead on exactly the kind of work your fleet will be doing and pick the best tire tread that will provide you with the most tread life.”
