Goodyear Tire & Rubber Co. has introduced two new regional-haul tires, the Goodyear Fuel Max RTD and the Goodyear Ultra Grip RTD.
The Goodyear Fuel Max RTD, a drive traction tire, balances enhanced fuel efficiency with long miles to removal and traction, according to Goodyear. Compliant with Phase 2 Greenhouse Gas Emissions and Fuel Efficiency Standards, the tire also contains a new, low rolling resistance tread compound.
The Goodyear Fuel Max RTD will be available during the fourth quarter of 2019 in the following sizes: 295/75R22.5 (Load Ranges G and H); 11R22.5 (Load Ranges G and H); 255/70R22.5 (Load Range H); 255/70R29.5 (Load Range G); and 225/70R19.5 (Load Range H.)
The new Goodyear Ultra Grip RTD is designed for regional trucks that run in severe weather conditions, Goodyear says. According to the company, features of the tire include:
- Proven tread design and compound for long, even wear;
- 25/32-in. deep tread for long miles to removal;
- Complex sipe geometry with variable tread depth to help provide excellent traction as the tire wears; and
- Conical stone ejectors to limit stone trapping.
- The Goodyear Ultra Grip RTD will hit the market during the fourth quarter of 2019 in size 11R22.5 (Load Range H.)
