Goodyear Tire and Rubber Company introduced a new fuel efficient, long haul drive tire for North America.

The Fuel Max LHD G505D is SmartWay-verified and designed to improve fuel economy by incorporating fuel-efficient compounds, tire constructions and tread designs to lower the rolling resistance of the tires.

“Fuel is the number-one cost for trucking fleets,” said Brian Buckham, general manager of product marketing at Goodyear. “This tire is a must have for fleets that are serious about reducing their cost-per-mile.”

The new features of the tire include:

  • A highly siped center rib and lateral grooves for better all season traction.
  • Goodyear Tredlock technology which contains interlocking micro-grooves and a wide tread to help stabilize the tread.
  • A steel-belt casing package for toughness, endurance and better retreadabilty.
  • Penetration protectors to resist stone drilling.

"Our goal is to help fleets lower their cost-per-mile," said Buckham. "Helping them optimize their truck's efficiency is a big part of this process."
