Kenworth is offering wide base steer tires for applications requiring up to 20,000-pound front axle weight ratings for the company’s T370 truck model.  Available in 385/65R22.5 size, from Bridgestone, Good Year, and Michelin, the tires were previously available only on all-wheel drive T370 steer axles with ratings up to 16,000 pounds.  The Kenworth T370 is also now available with 4.9 inch fender extensions to reduce road spray from the wide tires.  “These tires can now be ordered for the new T370s with our heaviest non-drive front axles-rated at 16,000, 18,000 and 20,000 pounds” said Kurt Swihart, Kenworth marketing director.  “This provides a large “footprint” in vocational applications where off-road conditions, such as mud, can make driving difficult.  The tires also comply with standards in certain states and Canada, which require larger tires to carry heavier weights.”
