Manufactured in Yokohama’s plant in West Point, Mississippi, all four sizes of the SmartWay-verified 712L—295/75R22.5, 11R22.5, 285/75R24.5 and 11R24.5—will carry the three-peak mountain snowflake symbol on the sidewall.

Yokohama says other benefits of the 712L include:

  • Wear resistance attributed to the 30/32-inch deep groove plus stress control grooves to reduce contact pressure at the tread edge. Additionally, a flat footprint controls ground contact pressure and improves resistance to irregular wear.
  • Fuel-efficiency and traction achieved by the tread compound developed for reduced rolling resistance without compromising wear performance in addition to straight and angled sipes and zig-zag intermediate grooves. Straight circumferential outer grooves allow for water evacuation and enhanced traction.
  • Funnel-shaped grooves that prevent stones and other debris from reaching the bottom groove.

The 712L’s premium casing is backed with a seven-year, unlimited retread warranty.
