The Goodyear Tire & Rubber Company has enhanced three tire lines to help commercial trucks travel further on a tank of fuel.
The G399A LHS Fuel Max, the G572A LHD Fuel Max, and the G392A SSD with DuraSeal + Fuel Max wide-base tire have been improved to help deliver reduced rolling resistance for better fuel efficiency, as well as long miles to removal, the company says.
All three of these tire lines, which are SmartWay-verified and will launch during the second quarter of 2013, use Goodyear’s exclusive Fuel Max Technology, which Goodyear says contains fuel-saving compounds and advanced design technology to help reduce rolling resistance and improve tread life.
“When it comes to helping fleets reduce their total cost of ownership, Goodyear is in it for the long haul,” says Brian Buckham, marketing manager, Goodyear Commercial Tire Systems. “These enhanced tires will help fleets lower their fuel bills, while still delivering long miles to removal. Both of these factors help reduce the fleet’s cost per mile.
“By combining these tire performance improvements with Goodyear-FleetHQ’s 24/7 roadside service program and business tools that help fleets manage their tire assets, Goodyear delivers ‘The Total Package Solution’ for fleets of all sizes and configurations.”
