Goodyear Enhances Three Tire Lines
April 23, 2013 - Products
Goodyear Tire & Rubber Co.
Goodyear's G399A LHS Fuel Max, the G572A LHD Fuel Max, and the G392A SSD with DuraSeal + Fuel Max wide-base tire have been improved to help deliver reduced rolling resistance for better fuel efficiency, as well as long miles to removal.
All three of these tire lines – which are SmartWay-verified and will launch during the second quarter of 2013 – use Goodyear’s exclusive Fuel Max Technology, which contains fuel-saving compounds and advanced design technology to help reduce rolling resistance and improve tread life.
G399A LHS Fuel Max
The G399A LHS Fuel Max offers the following features:
• Goodyear Fuel Max Technology compounds that lower rolling resistance and help enhance fuel economy.
• An outside tread shoulder compound that helps protect the tire’s pressure distribution groove, which promotes even wear.
• Four-belt construction, which helps enhance toughness and tire life.
The tire will be available in the following sizes: 11R22.5, 295/75R22.5, 11R24.5 and 285/75R24.5, each in both G and H Load Ratings.
G572A LHD Fuel Max
The G572A LHD Fuel Max also boasts fuel-saving Goodyear Fuel Max Technology compounds to help promote energy efficiency. Other features include:
• Goodyear’s Tredlock Technology, which contains interlocking microgrooves that help stabilize the tread for enhanced tread life and toughness.
• A deep, 30/32-inch tread depth to help enhance tread life.
The G572A LHD Fuel Max will be available in 295/75R22.5, 285/75R24.5, 11R22.5 and 11R24.5 sizes, all in Load Range G. Sizes 11R22.5 and 11R24.5 also will be available in Load Range H.
G392A SSD DuraSeal + Fuel Max
The G392A SSD DuraSeal + Fuel Max wide-base tire contains both Goodyear’s exclusive fuel-saving Fuel Max Technology and DuraSeal Technology, a gel-like substance built into the tire’s inner liner that instantly seals nail-hole punctures of up to 1/4-inch in diameter in the repairable area of its tread.
G392A SSD DuraSeal + Fuel Max will be available in size 445/50R22.5 Load Range L. In addition, the tire contains eight wide circumferential grooves that help provide all-season traction and uniform wear for long tread life.
