STEMCO introduces the SuperSpare semi truck spare tire mount.
STEMCO says SuperSpare is designed to be mounted on a tractor to simplify tire-related roadside maintenance. Installing SuperSpare technology also makes the adoption of fuel-saving “super single” tires more practical, because although “super single” tires add over 3 percent in fuel savings through decreased road resistance, they require immediate replacement when damaged. Having an easily accessible and replaceable spare mounted on the tractor is therefore vital to a safe and efficient use of “super single” tires, STEMCO says.
“Every minute of unexpected downtime costs both fleets and driver’s valuable time and money,” says Royal Jones, president of Mesilla Valley Transportation. “Fleets that choose to install SuperSpare can rest assured that their trucks can be easily and quickly repaired on the side of the road, even if they are operating with ‘super single’ tires.”
SuperSpare can be installed on tractors with at least 43 in. of available frame rail space, and is compatible with both “super single” and regular truck tires, STEMCO says.
