Yokohama Tire has rolled out a new all-position radial tire, the 504C. Manufactured at Yokohama’s plant in West Point, Miss., the 504C is engineered with a sturdy undertread for on- and off-highway applications. The 504C replaces Yokohama’s MY507 and is available now in sizes 11R22.5 (H) and 11R24.5 (H).
“The 504C is the tire for jobs that go beyond where the pavement ends,” said Tom Clauer, Yokohama’s senior manager of commercial and OTR product planning.
According to Yokohama, benefits of the 504C include:
• A wide tread provides a more stable footprint for extended original tread life, improved traction, superb wet braking and easier retreadability.
• Three circumferential grooves with a deep center groove allow for better water evacuation throughout the original tread life.
• The wide casing makes the 504C retreadable, it’s backed by a six-year, three-retread casing warranty.
• Engineering elements such as the funnel-shaped step grooves that prevent stone drilling from damaging the casing and the high-strength belt construction protects against rust and stone penetration while minimizing heat generation. Also, an advanced compound supplies cut and chip resistance without sacrificing wear performance.
