Yokohama will give away $5,000 worth of its long-haul 101ZL steer tire during MATS.

Attendees who stop by the Yokohama Tire Corp. booth 14124 at the Mid-America Trucking Show (MATS) in Louisville, Ky., March 22-24, will get daily chances to win premium 101ZL steer tires and iPad 2s.

“We’ll be giving away three pairs of our popular 101ZL tires – including free installation and valve stems at the Yokohama dealer of their choice – and three iPad 2s (with free Wi-fi and 3G) during the show,” says Rick Phillips, Yokohama director of commercial sales. 

“Winning the prizes will be simple. MATS attendees just have to register at our booth and be present at the drawings to win.”

There will be two drawings each day. The iPad 2 drawings will be at 1:30 p.m. The 101ZL tire drawings will be at 3:30 p.m., with the prizes totaling $5,000.

The long-haul 101ZL steer tire, part of Yokohama’s Zenvironment line, is on the EPA’s SmartWay list of low rolling resistance tires and is available in four sizes (295/75R22.5, 11R22.5, 11R24.5 and 285/75R24.5).

“It features enhanced durability, excellent longevity and outstanding fuel efficiency, perfect for fleet owners and truck operators,” says Phillips.
