Regular wear

Use of the tyre's full potential thanks to uniform wear patterns:

  • Front and Drive: optimized contact patch
  • Drive : directional tread patterns

** Direction of rotation: Some TAURUS truck tyres have a directional tread pattern. We recommend that in such a case the tyre should be mounted respecting the indicated direction of rotation, optimising it’s potential life. If during it’s service life it becomes necessary to turn the tyre on the rim, then we suggest that all tyres on the same axle are turned similarly.
