Goodyear has a new tire designed for long-haul fleets looking to enhance fuel efficiency, the new Fuel Max LHD 2, which will debut in early 2021.
According to Goodyear, the new drive tire is designed with a fuel-focused tread compound combination that offers low rolling resistance, meets Phase 2 Greenhouse Gas Emissions and Fuel Efficiency Standards, and is SmartWay verified. The Fuel Max LHD 2 also features Goodyear’s TredLock technology, which includes double-corrugated blades that help ensure the tire wears evenly and maintains traction over time, earning it a Three-Peak Mountain Snowflake designation. Finally, its premium enhanced casing construction allows for maximum retreadability.
“We are always looking for ways to ensure our customers get the best value from our tires. For long-haul fleets, that means developing a tire that can offer fuel efficiency and accommodate the extensive miles they travel,” said Devin Dickerhoof, product marketing manager. “Advanced casing compounds help make the Fuel Max LHD 2 Goodyear’s best long-haul tire for fuel efficiency and an excellent solution for fleets looking to lower their cost per mile.”
In early 2021, Goodyear plans to offer the Fuel Max LHD 2 in the size 295/75R22.5 (Load Range G), with the 11R22.5 (Load Range G) size releasing thereafter. The Fuel Max LHD 2 will be available at authorized independent Goodyear commercial tire dealers throughout the United States and Canada, as well as Goodyear Commercial Tire & Service Centers.
