Manufactured at Yokohama’s plant in West Point, Mississippi, the 715R is SmartWay-verified for low rolling resistance and available in a 11R22.5. Three more sizes – 295/75R22.5, 285/75R24.5 and 11R24.5 – will arrive in early 2020.

Yokohama says benefits of the 715R include:

  • Longer wear due to a deep 26/32-inch tread pattern, along with a tread design featuring strategically placed tie bars that control block movement and minimize heel/toe wear.
  • Maximum traction due to sturdy, open shoulder blocks that are precisely spaced and help minimize the retention of foreign objects.
  • Fuel efficiency ensured by Yokohama’s exclusive compound that’s cut and chip resistant and reduces rolling resistance.
  • Higher load capacity, provided by 16-ply construction and an H load-rating.
