Orbita, a shipping and forwarding company, summed up the interim results of KAMARETREAD tyres operation after the first cycle of retreading at KaMaRetread, a plant of KAMA TYRES Complex. So, from December 2018 and for four months the tyres passed 70,000 km with the tread wear – 6-8 mm. The expected mileage of the tyre is 200,000 km.
The company's fleet consists of tractor units and semi-trailers, used on paved roads for long-distance and regional trucking in Russia with an average load of 20 tons. KAMARETREAD tyres of 315/70 R22.5 size, retreaded on all-steel carcasses of KAMA NF 202 and KAMA NR 202 models, and of 385/65 R22.5 size, retreaded on KAMA NT 201 carcass are chosen for the transport.
“KAMARETREAD tyres have proven themselves in winter conditions. Tyres of 315/70 R22,5 size for the leading axle showed good traction in ice and slush conditions as when driving on the highway, and when starting off. The drivers also noted excellent road holding,” said a representative of Orbita.
“We have been working with Orbita since last fall. In this period KaMaRetread has retreaded 16 all-steel tyres for the company. It should be noted that such tyre is the best choice for any fleets, because companies can significantly optimize their transportation costs with it,” said Andrey Bouton, Acting CEO at Kama Trading House. KaMaRetread (a plant for all-steel tyres retreading) provides special conditions for its services of all-steel tyres retreading. An additional discount depends on the number of retreaded carcasses for each batch after the work is completed. The warranty period for the cold retreaded tyre is 2 years.
