Goodyear unveils two RangeMax tires deisgned for regional work

Goodyear says the new tire models balance traction, range and mileage for work vehicles running on electricity, gas or diesel.

The Goodyear Tire & Rubber Co. introduced two additions to its portfolio of RangeMax tires: the RangeMax RSA ULT and the RangeMax RTD ULT. Goodyear says its latest RangeMax tires are a steer-drive combo engineered for electric, gas- or diesel-powered regional work vehicles.

Goodyear says the all-position RangeMax RSA ULT and RangeMax RTD ULT tires help deliver range efficiency through low rolling resistance and long miles to removal. 

RangeMax RSA ULT

Available in sizes 225/70R19.5 and 245/70R19.5, Goodyear says the RangeMax RSA ULT boasts 10% better rolling resistance compared to its Fuel Max RSA ULT tire. Additional features highlighted by the company include:

  • Intellimax technology that helps stiffen tread for long miles to removal;
  • Sawtooth shoulder groove design and advanced tread compounds that provide an aggressive pattern for mud, snow; and
  • Three-Peak Mountain Snowflake (3PMSF) traction rating.

RangeMax RTD ULT

Available in sizes 225/70R19.5 and 245/70R19.5, Goodyear says the RangeMax RTD ULT utilizes a soybean oil tread compound and includes the following features:

  • A firm grip on the road due to a deep open-shoulder tread design;
  • Meets 3PMSF traction rating, delivering enhanced traction and acceleration in various weather conditions.

“As the unique range, durability and versatility needs of regional pickup and delivery fleets evolve, we’re constantly listening to our fleet partners to design superior tires for every application,” said Rich Cottrell, senior director of commercial marketing for Goodyear North America. “Our latest RangeMax tires combine low rolling resistance with enhanced features like premium casings and long-lasting tread compounds to help increase vehicle uptime and protect fleets’ investment.”
