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.
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.
