Yokohama Tire Corporation has launched the TY577 MC² fuel efficient, SmartWay verified long-haul drive tire.

Now available in the U.S., the TY577 MC² comes in sizes 295/75R22.5, 11R22.5, 285/75R24.5 and 11R24.5, and is also offered in 16-ply construction.

The tire is designed for long tread life is achieved by a 30/32-inch deep groove depth that delivers a firm and stable road grip while maximizing run-out mileage. It also features a closed shoulder rib that enables more rubber-to-road contact for long, even wear. Additionally, the stress wear control groove redistributes more load to the outside rib, reducing the chance of shoulder step-down wear.

Yokohama’s Stem-2 technology improves durability and retreadability by redirecting  destructive casing flex. Additionally, the funnel-shaped groove reduces stone retention and increases block rigidity for improved traction and wear rate.

“The TY577 MC² delivers it all: exceptional traction, long even wear, superior durability, low rolling resistance and incredible fuel efficiency,” said Tom Clauer, Yokohama Tire’s manager of commercial and OTR product planning.
