When all-season and high-speed capabilities are a must, Yokohama Tire says its new 115R comes through. The all-season tire is now available in size 225/70R19.5 (14).
“The N-speed rated 115R is a tough, all-position tire built to provide class 4 and 5 vehicles with superior year-round traction and dependability to get the job done,” says Tom Clauer, Yokohama senior manager, commercial and OTR product planning. “It’s engineered with a heat-resistant compound for better fuel efficiency and longer lasting tread life.”
The company says features of the 115R include:
- Durable casing construction is rated for speeds up to 87 mph.
- Yokohama’s advanced heat-resistant tread compound increases tread life and optimizes fuel economy. Additionally, middle wing blocks and tie-bar connectors control block movement to resist wear and reduce rolling resistance.
- Wide lateral grooves provide increased traction on wet or snow-covered roads, while deep serpentine grooves maintain aggressive traction throughout the life of the original tread.
- Durable construction helps defend against damage caused by curbing and scrubbing in typical urban operations.
