According to Rick Phillips, Yokohama's director of commercial sales, the 709ZL employs Yokohama's Zenvironment technology, which combines the latest in casing design, rubber compounding and tread design.

"By pairing our advanced compound with a tread design that's different from any other tire," Phillips says, "our engineers have successfully created a drive tire that is remarkably fuel efficient."

Highlights of the 709ZL include:

- Low rolling resistance and better fuel economy
- Unique drive tire tread design
- Solid shoulder rib and serpentine grooves for extra rigidity and stability
- Z Block design to improve wet traction and lower rolling resistance

The 709ZL will be available in the latter part of 2012.
