Yokohama Tire Corporation’s new TY517 commercial tire has been added to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s (EPA) SmartWay list of verified technologies.

The TY517, Yokohama’s latest ultra wide base drive tire, offers superior traction, along with long, even wear, according to the company. Its advanced profile contributes to the TY517’s durability for increased retreadability. It is now available in size 445/50R22.5. The TY517 will officially debut during the Mid-America Trucking Show, March 21-23 at the Kentucky Expo Center in Louisville, Ky.

SmartWay Transport, a collaboration between the EPA and the freight sector, is designed to improve energy efficiency and reduce greenhouse gas and air pollutant emissions.
