The FD405 drive position is part of Double Coin's fuel-efficient tire lineup, which consists of a series of tires including the FT105, verified by SmartWay in March.
The tire is made of advanced tread compounds and internal construction to provide lower rolling resistance and longer mileage. This helps each tire run cooler and reduce fuel consumption. The tire features a 26/32-inch tread with stone drilling protectors.
"Our customers demand products that help reduce their overall cost of doing business," said Aaron Murphy, vice president of CMA, a subsidiary of Double Coin.
The EPA estimates that using low rolling resistance tires on the steer, drive and trailer axle positions can provide a reduction in NOx emissions and an estimated fuel savings of 3 percent or greater relative to the "best selling" new tires.
Double Coin expects to add more products to EPA's Smartway list of verified technologies, including its ultra-premium steer tire FR605.
