The G572 LHD features 30/32nds-inch of tread, making it the deepest-tread drive tire with SmartWay approval on the market. The new tire replaces the G372A LHD and is nearly 10 percent better in lowering rolling resistance.

When used with Goodyear Fuel Max steer and trailer tires, operators can expect up to a 4-plus percent increase in fuel economy compared to standard Goodyear tires, the company said.

The G572 LHD features Goodyear's exclusive TredLock Technology, which interlocks microgrooves to stabilize the tread for enhanced tread life while promoting even wear. Additionally, the tire's belt package features four ultra-tensile steel belts to reinforce the tread while giving the tire a solid foundation for retreading.

The G572 LHD comes in four sizes: 11R22.5 and 11R24.5, in G and H load ratings; and 295/75R22.5, and 285/75R24.5, both in G load ratings.
