Love’s Travel Stop has added Yokohama Tire Corporation’s (YTC) ultra wide base (UWB) tires to its network.

Love’s, with 191 Truck Tire Care locations nationwide, says it will carry two UWB tires: theTY517 (drive) and RY407(trailer). Both tires are available in size 445/50R22.5.

“This is great news for drivers and fleets across the U.S.,” says Rick Phillips, YTC senior director, commercial and OTR sales. “Now our fleet and owner-operator customers can get our ultra wide base tires and technology at more locations.”

Phillips says the TY517 is designed to improve the bottom line of fleets by delivering outstanding traction, long, even wear, extraordinary durability and increased retreadability.

The RY407 – a SmartWay-verified tire – features an ultra-low profile that offers excellent fuel efficiency and vastly increased treadlife, adding up to increased payloads, the company says.
