M144A is a tubeless, five-rib highway tyre designed primarily for steer axles, although it can be used on all axle positions. It is designed to work best for long- to medium-haul applications. The tread pattern and compound minimise running temperatures at high average speeds, thereby to prolonging tread life. The casing construction and tread profile minimise irregular wear. Key Features and Benefits: Heat-resistant tread compound provide slow-wear rate for medium and long haul applications with high average speeds. Flat crown radius and wide tread width provide even distribution of contact pressure over the contact patch for even wear and optimum handling. Five-rib tread pattern with siping provide low tread noise, directional stability and wet braking grip. Tyres fit up excellent with a good â€œRoundnessâ€ every time with small weight required when Balanced.
