The Goodyear Tire & Rubber Company has added another product to its Endurance family of high-mileage long-haul tires with the introduction of the Goodyear Endurance LHS steer tire, which complements its Goodyear Endurance LHD drive tire.
“We have millions of miles tested on this product [and] a lot of innovation and technology … and we’re confident our customers will appreciate the new and improved performance,” Mahesh Kavaturu, marketing manager, commercial long-haul and regional products, says during a press conference held today. “Long-haul fleets want long miles to removal, great fuel efficiency and even tread wear.”
Like the Goodyear Endurance LHD, the Endurance LHS is SmartWay-verified and is a key part of Goodyear’s Total Solution of products, services and fleet management tools, delivered by a nationwide network, according to the company. The GoodyearEndurance LHS will replace the G399A.
Optimized to help provide long miles to removal, the Goodyear Endurance LHS features:
- A new, wear-resistant tread compound;
- A new dual-layer tread with uniform stiffness for slow, even wear;
- New rigid casing construction for a consistent footprint; and
- New casing compounds for low rolling resistance
“Long-haul fleets are the biggest segment of the North American trucking market,” says Kavaturu in an announcement. “When it comes to tires, these companies measure every mile. And they want to get as many miles as possible out of their tire investment, without sacrificing other performance benefits like fuel efficiency, even wear and traction. We believe that the new Goodyear Endurance LHS, along with the Goodyear Endurance LHD, can help fleets achieve this balance and ultimately lower their operating costs.”
The Goodyear Endurance LHS is available in the following sizes: 295/75R22.5 (Load Ranges G and H): 11R22.5 (Load Ranges G and H); and 11R24.5 (Load Ranges G and H). An additional size, 285/75R24.5 (Load Ranges G and H), will be available next month.
Both the Goodyear Endurance LHS and Goodyear Endurance LHD are available through the Goodyear Commercial Tire & Service Network, which encompasses more than 2,300 Goodyear Commercial Tire & Service Centers and authorized, independent Goodyear commercial tire dealerships throughout the United States and Canada.
