Goodyear Tire & Rubber Company has launched a new waste haul tire for North America called the Endurance WHA, designed for durability and long life.
The Endurance WHA offers a combination of a scrub-resistant compound and a deep 24/32-inch tread depth. Optional with the tire is Goodyear’s DuraSeal Technology that instantly seals nail-hole punctures of up to 1/4-inch in diameter in the repairable area of the tread.
The DuraSeal technology is built into the tire during the manufacturing process and affords the tire another layer of protection against debris-filled environments that waste haul trucks often encounter. Waste haul tires like the Endurance WHA, including those with DuraSeal, can be retreaded at Goodyear Commercial Tire & Service Network locations.
The Endurance WHA also features sidewall protector shingles to help resist sidewall scuffing in high-scrub applications, improving casing life. The tire has a steel belt and casing package for better durability, endurance and retreadability.
It has an optimized shoulder design to direct pressure away from the tire’s outer tread to promote uniform tread wear. The tread features four wide circumferential grooves for all-season traction on wet, snow-covered and dry roads. It also has a wide footprint to enhance cornering and handling when used on local streets.
The Endurance WHA will be available in the fourth quarter of 2015 in size 315/80R22.5, Load Range L.
