The Transforce CV is Firestone’s Commercial Highway All-Season light truck tire developed for the drivers of vans, delivery trucks and multi-purpose vehicles that transport heavy loads. Available in heavy-duty, Euro-metric Commercial Vehicle (designated by the suffix C, not to be confused with LT-metric Load Range C) sizes, the Transforce CV is designed to deliver long life and comfort, even while hauling heavy loads, in addition to providing predictable handling on dry and wet roads, as well as in light snow.
Utilizing an all-season compound, the Transforce CV is molded into a symmetric pattern with an optimized tread profile to help resist uneven wear. The updated tread pattern is also designed for chip- and tear-resistance on coarse surfaces. Wide, circumferential grooves and full-depth lateral slots help evacuate water to reduce hydroplaning, and Saw Tooth Edge Siping delivers the biting edges needed for traction in slippery conditions while also maintaining stability of the tread blocks.
