Vipal Rubber released the VT250 tread. The VT250 tread is designed to run in extreme conditions, such as severe winters with snow and mud on the roads.

The features of the VT250 are designed for terrain with snow and mud. Besides being made from a special rubber compound, the tread also contains the M + S marking, which gives the product a guarantee of good performance in snow and mud conditions. In addition to these attributes, another highlight of the VT250 is the tread direction, which increases its traction and self-cleaning power, providing better grip in these conditions and reducing the uneven wear of the tread. Another differential of the tread is the Eye Control system. It is a wear indicator, in the shape of an eye, which helps the user to monitor the wear level of the tread. Through this system, it is possible to identify anomalies in alignment, balance, and geometry, the suggested use time, as well as the time to remove the tire for new retreading.

“Vipal’s VT250 has everything to become a reference when it comes to tread for severe snow conditions because of its advantages, which will easily be perceived by the market, as they match what the fleets need,” said Gabriel Fuma, commercial manager of Vipal NAFTA. “The product was designed to serve fleets in the northern United States and Canada in the harsh winter, so installation is recommended immediately before winter.”

“We are always focused on identifying needs and offering appropriate solutions to the different markets in which we operate,” said Leandro Rigon, business director, Vipal. “Carriers from cold regions of the globe, such as North America and Europe, need products that perform well in harsh conditions, and Vipal is always ready to offer the best solutions.”
