Yokohama Tire’s 121T regional trailer tire now on sale

Yokohama Tire’s latest commercial product – the 121T – is now on sale in the U.S. The 121T is specifically engineered for trailer use only. The new tire is severe snow service-rated in all weather conditions and is offered in sizes 215/75R17.5 and 235/75R17.5. Benefits of the 121T, according to the tire maker, include:

• The three-groove tread pattern assures reduced rolling resistance and pattern noise for a quiet, fuel-efficient ride.

• Serpentine grooves efficiently remove water from beneath the tread and maximize traction on wet and snowy roads. Plus, precisely engineered concave lug features provide additional traction under wet or slippery conditions.

• The ridged shoulder design reduces the chances for shoulder step-down wear and improves straight line stability. Additionally, the funnel-shaped step grooves prevent stones and debris from reaching the bottom of the groove where casing damage occurs.
