The Hutchinson Tire Saver Shield improves the continued operation of vehicles by reducing down time, cutting maintenances expenses and assuring customer satisfaction.
Survivability of tires
The Hutchinson Tire Saver Shield consists of a heavy duty reinforced material. The composition of the Tire Saver Shield material can withstand the curb abrasions that bus and transit tire sidewalls often endure during operations.
Maintenance Costs Savings
Sidewall damage is not typically covered under tire warranty. Therefore, protecting the sidewall will avoid costly and time consuming tire replacements. Reduction in sidewall damage will result in increased tire life, improved retread ability and/or higher casing credits cutting tire life cycle costs.
