The Goodyear Tire & Rubber Co said the United States Environmental Protection Agency has certified its commercial tires featuring Fuel Max Technology for use on SmartWay-eligible trucks.
These fuel-efficient line-haul tires deliver up to 4 percent improved truck fuel economy, and when used with other SmartWay-qualified components, each truck can produce savings of up to 4,000 gallons per year, or more than $11,000 annually, according to Goodyear and EPA officials.
Goodyear tires featuring Fuel Max Technology include the Unisteel G395 LHS steer tire, Unisteel G305 LHD drive tire, and Unisteel G316 LHT trail tire in standard (11R22.5) and low-profile (295/75R22.5 and 285/75R24.5) sizes. Goodyear also is offering UniCircle and precure retreading with Fuel Max Technology.
