Yokohama Tire has introduced a new all-position waste and sanitation tire. The new 506U replaces the MY627W Spec-2 offering and is now available in a 315/80R22.5 sizes.
According to the tire maker, features of the 506U include:
- Enhanced durability: The 506U’s new wider tread pattern incorporates a wide outside rib to resist tearing. Additionally, rock shield platforms throughout the center grooves reduce stone and debris penetration for improved casing life, durability and retreadability. Plus, the 506U’s extra-thick sidewall helps prevent damage from curbs and potholes.
- Longer tread life: A new advanced tread compound resists scrubbing, cutting and chipping for added tread life.
- Casing: Its construction assures maximum retreadability and it also carries a six-year unlimited retread casing warranty.
- Added traction: Zig-zag circumferential grooves enhance water evacuation to provide extra traction throughout the original tread life.
