A new Pirelli-branded range of commercial vehicle tyres from Prometeon Tyre Group has begun final user testing.

By the end of May, the first Serie 02 tyres will begin to be delivered to around 90 influential fleets selected by PTG to test project the new product via PRO CHECK tools. PRO CHECK is Prometeon’s inspection and monitoring system that is designed to provide reliable and personalised support and to optimise operational efficiency and costs. The partner fleets will be fitted with Serie 02 tyres and competitors' tyres. PTG Quality and Research and Development technicians and experts will monitor their performance in medium and long term.

According to PTG, in comparison with the previous range, the Serie 02 improves on all aspects: rolling resistance (-18% on average, for the first product lines available), mileage (+10% on average), durability (+20% on average), and wear uniformity (+10% on average). Plus, for the first time, a Prometeon long-haul tyre is rated A for fuel consumption: the Profuel line.

Weight has been optimised, without any compromise in performance, and all products can be regrooved and are retreadable, bringing benefit to the life cycle of the tyres. In addition, they have the 3PMSF winter marking, are equipped with an RFID sensor and are approved by the major European vehicle manufacturers.

PTG expects the Serie 02 to replace more than 80% of the previous series in 2024.

In other news is the launch of a four-year guarantee, ‘Tyre Back’, for Serie 02 tyres. For 48 months from the date of production, the fleet will be entitled to a full replacement of the product in case of tyre damage due to structural imperfections.
