MRT Process – Pre-Mold™ Builder Balance Improvement



This patent pending innovation works to compensate for casing construction and expandable rim variability. Prior to tread building, the Builder Balance Improvement device locates the sector of the tire with the least amount of undertread. The tread and cushion joints are then positioned in this sector. The tread and cushion joints are heavier, and when positioned at the low point, radial runout is improved and less balance weight is needed when the tire is mounted on the vehicle. This indexing of the tread and cushion joints helps to ensure a better, smoother ride with less irregular wear. The Builder Balance Improvement device is proprietary to the MRT process.
