30% more miles

After its conventional road and ultra-sporty range, this time Pirelli is replacing its tyres for the commercial vehicle sector. The Italian tyre manufacturer has launched its  new Carrier range, designed to meet the needs of users of this type of vehicle and deliver the best possible performance. Thanks to three million kilometres clocked up during development tests conducted in diverse driving environments, a latest generation compound and technology extrapolated from the brand’s latest products, the new Carrier range offers better performance in all segments: reduced fuel consumption thanks to a lower rolling resistance, better road holding on wet roads, increased driving comfort, and above all, a much longer tyre life. Pirelli announces a mileage improvement of 30%.


Good label ratings

Of course, Pirelli has worked on the performance rating label displayed in store, and in particular, the wet grip criterion that obtains an A/B grade, thus placing the tyre at the top of its category compared with its competitors. The Carrier will soon be available on the van market for rim diameters ranging from 14 to 17 inches, complete with the Carrier Camper version in 15 and 16 inch sizes. Pirelli’s objective is simply to become the leader in the tyre replacement market for light commercial vehicles.
