325/90R24.5 tubeless – new size introduction replacing 325/95R24 tube type
During the previous years, more and more tube type applications are migrating to tubeless with many well-known advantages, but some sizes still not properly addressed for example the 325/95R24 in the Middle East market. In the past it was proposed the usage of 325/95R24 in TL rims, but the assembly process difficulties didn’t allow this solution to widespread in the market and for solving this issue, a new tire size standardization was requested to ETRTO as the beginning of a new tire project.
