Vipal Rubber releases VT850 tread for heavy vehicles

The VT850 was designed to allow traction power and self-cleaning of the tread, essential characteristics for off-road use.

Vipar Rubber released the VT850 tread for the North American market. The VT850 was developed for heavy work with vehicles such as motorgraders, wood grabber loaders, and loaders and traction vehicles that operate off-road.

The VT850 was created with a design that allows excellent traction power and self-cleaning of the tread, essential characteristics for off-road use. The grooves’ sculpture minimizes the retention of rocks and objects preventing damage to the tire. The VT850 tread has the M + S marking that guarantees its high performance in severe weather conditions such as mud and snow. It also has a wear indicator, which indicates the exact moment it should be retreaded, keeping the casing intact and extending the tire's service life so that it can be retreaded as many times as possible while maintaining the required safety and quality standards.

“We have received excellent feedback from everyone who has equipped their vehicles with the VT850 tread,” said Gabriel Fuma, commercial manager, Vipal NAFTA. “The tread proves, in practice, the excellent results it obtained during the tests. We are confident that it will be widely successful in the American market due to the great performance it has been presenting.”
