Goodyear rolls out new wide-base tires
Jun 27, 2011 2:38 PM
Goodyear has introduced its G392 SSD drive and G394 SST trailer wide-base tires for long-haul and regional-haul uses.
These new tires, which feature Fuel Max Technology, offer flat protection, thanks to Goodyear’s DuraSeal Technology, a gel-like inner liner that instantly seals punctures of up to 1/4-inch in the repairable area of the tread. DuraSeal does not seal sidewall punctures.
The G392 SSD and G394 SST are EPA SmartWay-verified.
G392 SSD DuraSeal + Fuel Max
Goodyear’s nine-rib design, with eight wide, circumferential grooves, provides all-season traction in dry, wet, and snowy conditions. Combined with its 25/32-inch tread depth, the tire tested with superior results in wet and dry traction at Goodyear’s test facility in San Angelo TX and snow performance testing in Minnesota.
Design of the tread is coupled with a casing construction that restricts casing expansion to help alleviate irregular wear. The G392 SSD comes in load range “L” in a 445/50R22.5 size.
G394 SST DuraSeal + Fuel Max
Featuring a five-rib design with minimal blades, the G394 SST has tread compounding for SmartWay verification and long miles to removal. Its 12/32-inch tread depth provides an excellent balance to maximize fuel economy, weight, and tread life. The optimized tread and mold design provides a uniform footprint to help resist irregular wear while providing a quiet ride. The tire’s robust shoulder design and casing construction helps it resist curbing damage. The G394 SST is available in load range “L” in a 445/50R22.5 size.
To help fleets and owner-operators further reduce tire costs, in the fourth quarter, Goodyear will offer matching retreads for both the G392 SSD and G394 SST.
