Yokohama Tire Corp. has launched a new long-haul drive tire: the TY577 MC2. Now available in the U.S., the SmartWay-verified TY577 MC2 comes in sizes 295/75R22.5, 11R22.5, 285/75R24.5 and 11R24.5, and is also offered in 16-ply construction.

According to the company, the TY577 MC2 combines an ultra-deep tread pattern with Yokohama’s MC2 technology, which minimizes the effects of heat on the casing and tread, providing extreme low rolling resistance to reduce fleets’ cost-per-mile.

Other benefits of the TY577 MC2, described by the company, include:

  • Exceptionally long treadlife is achieved by a 30/32-in. deep groove depth that delivers a firm and stable road grip while maximizing run-out mileage, plus, the closed shoulder rib enables more rubber-to-road contact for long, even wear. Also: the stress wear control groove redistributes more load to the outside rib, greatly reducing the chance of shoulder step-down wear.
  • Ultimate case durability is insured thanks to Yokohama’s STEM-2 technology, which redirects destructive casing flex. This leads to improved casing durability and retreadability. Additionally, the funnel-shaped groove reduces stone retention and increases block rigidity for improved traction and wear rate.
