"The Z.environment tire line incorporates optimum tread designs, compounds and casing design to create a tire that has longer first tread life, longer casing life and low rolling resistance," said John Cooney, Yokohama’s director of commercial sales. "These features result in reduced material consumption, reduced pollution and contribute to the health of our environment."

The 703ZL tire features one inch deep tread and a low rolling resistance, the company said. It has more rubber on the outside rib, translating to more road miles. Other features include an optimum rubber compound for higher mileage and improved cut- and chipping-resistance; a funnel-shaped groove wall that is wider at the top for enhanced traction, yet narrows at the bottom to prevent stones and other road debris from traveling to the bottom; and a new base compound that significantly reduces tire heat buildup and improves tread wear, the company said.
