Johannesburg, South Africa – May 17, 2016: Sava is launching the new Sava Avant 4Plus steer tyre and Orjak 4Plus drive tyre. These European on-road quality truck tyres feature the latest generation tread designs. The new Sava 4Plus tyres offer cost-conscious fleet operators further benefits including improved mileage of up to 10% 1 compared to their predecessors and a wider range of sizes.
Seven sizes are available in the Sava Avant 4Plus steer tyre range including one new size. The tread profile of the Avant 4Plus gives an optimal footprint to ensure even wear and high mileage. A further feature of the new tyres is that the widest sizes 385/55R22.5 and 385/65R22.5 now have six ribs giving more flexibility than the previous five-rib design. This too improves wear characteristics. The new Sava Avant 4Plus steer tyres are more robust and offer a mileage increase of up to 10%2 compared to their predecessors.
