In Malaysia, RoadX commercial tyres are distributed by SJI Tyres (M) Sdn Bhd, a member of the Sailun Group.
RoadX truck and bus radial (TBR) tyres are renowned for high quality and performance, and the range offers a wide variety including steer, drive, trailer and all-position patterns as well as tyres for demanding off-road applications.
RoadX is a commercial brand from the Qingdao-based Sailun Group that was founded in 2002 and is China’s first ‘A’ listed private tyre company. The tyres are produced in Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam and Qingdao, China. In Malaysia, RoadX commercial tyres are distributed by SJI Tyres (M) Sdn Bhd, a member of the Sailun Group.
SJI Tyres set up its business in Masai, Johor in 2018 and its operations include customer sales support, technical training for fleet customers and a large warehouse. Its operation in Malaysia is headed by an experienced general manager and a professional sales team that could recommend the right tyre for various commercial vehicles and applications. The company has a motto of ‘We make great tyres’ as well as a sales tagline of ‘Specialise in truck and bus radial tyres’ that emphasises the company's focus on providing tyres that provide the optimum mileage and performance.
Among the tyres available is the RoadX RH648 regional all position tyre that is optimised for steer axles. The RH648 tyre is suited for regional line haul applications, pick-up and delivery, and highway service. It has a broad 5-rib tread pattern to provide precise handling and excellent stability. Wide circumferential grooves effectively channel water from the tread area and feature ‘stone ejectors’ to prevent stone drilling for a long casing life and improved retreadability.
There is also the RoadX RH621 steer position tyre for medium and long distance travel, which has a high grade tread compound to improve wear resistance. Its groove and sipe design improve grip, while the widened running surface improves pressure distribution for better traction and ground performance. The RH621 tyre also has designs at the bottom of the main grooves that improve handling and driving comfort as well as widened shoulders and a shallow groove design that effectively dissipate heat to promote even shoulder wear.
For off-road applications, RoadX has the DT991 drive position tyre. Designed for mine transportation vehicles that cover short distances at low speeds, the DT991 tyre has a cut-resistant tread formula design that improves cut and block-drop off resistance. Its high-strength belt design improves the tyre crown’s impact resistance, while the widened running surface and deepened tread offer excellent traction performance.
To improve traction, the RoadX RD781 drive position tyre for medium and long distance travel has a meticulously spaced tread block pattern. Its overall tread pattern design allows for even ground distribution pressure to offer greater handling stability, and a deepened pattern designed with greater wear and tear resistant rubber compound to enhance tyre mileage. The RD781’s open shoulder and meticulously spaced block designs improve traction and heat dissipation.
For both on and off-road use, the MS663 drive tyre has a horizontal block pattern that offers better tyre grip and traction. Its deepened tread and compound provide better wear and tear resistance while improving tyre mileage. The MS663 tyre also uses a high-strength carcass for better heavy load carrying capacity, while its arched groove bottom improves the tyre’s self-cleaning ability to reduce stone retention.
The RT785 drive tyre has a tread compound designed for high wear and heat resistance. Its deepened pattern design results in effective mileage, while the rib design reinforces block strength to promote even tread wear and reduce the occurrence of block drop-off. It also has a wide groove design for better self-cleaning performance and traction, and a wide driving surface to provide good handling performance and safety.
