Goodyear improves three tire lines

The Goodyear Tire & Rubber Company has enhanced three tire lines to help commercial trucks travel further on a tank of fuel.

The G399A LHS Fuel Max, G572A LHD Fuel Max, and G392A SSD with DuraSeal + Fuel Max wide-base tire have been improved to help deliver reduced rolling resistance for better fuel efficiency, as well as long miles to removal.

All three of these tire lines—which are SmartWay-verified and will launch during the second quarter of 2013—use Goodyear’s Fuel Max technology, which contains fuel-saving compounds and advanced design technology to help reduce rolling resistance and improve tread life.

The G399A LHS Fuel Max offers these features:

•Fuel-saving Goodyear Fuel Max technology compounds that lower rolling resistance and help enhance fuel economy.

•An outside tread shoulder compound that helps protect the tire’s pressure distribution groove.

•Four-belt construction.

The tire will be available in 11R22.5, 295/75R22.5, 11R24.5, and 285/75R24.5 sizes, each in both G and H Load Ratings.

The G572A LHD Fuel Max also has fuel-saving Fuel Max technology compounds to help promote energy efficiency. Other features include:

•Goodyear’s Tredlock technology, which contains interlocking microgrooves that help stabilize the tread.

•A deep, 30/32-inch tread depth.

The G572A LHD Fuel Max will be available in 295/75R22.5, 285/75R24.5, 11R22.5, and 11R24.5 sizes, all in Load Range G. Sizes 11R22.5 and 11R24.5 also will be available in Load Range H.

The G392A SSD DuraSeal + Fuel Max wide-base tire contains both Fuel Max technology and DuraSeal technology, a gel-like substance built into the tire’s inner liner that instantly seals nail-hole punctures of up to ¼-inch in diameter in the repairable area of its tread.

G392A SSD DuraSeal + Fuel Max will be available in size 445/50R22.5 Load Range L. The tire contains eight wide circumferential grooves that help provide all-season traction and uniform wear for long tread life.
