The Yokohama TY517 (pictured) and RY407 ultra wide base tires are now available at all 191 Love’s Truck Tire Care locations.

Yokohama Tire Corp. (YTC) announced it has entered into an agreement with Love’s Travel Stops, with 191 Truck Tire Care locations nationwide, to carry two ultra wide base tires, the TY517 (drive) and RY407 (trailer). Both tires are available in size 445/50R22.5.

“This is great news for drivers and fleets across the U.S.,” said Rick Phillips, YTC senior director, commercial and OTR sales.

“Now our fleet and owner-operator customers can get our ultra wide base tires and technology at more locations. Love’s Travel Stops have been in business for 50 years and are open seven days a week, 24 hours a day to service fleets. This will assist in minimizing a driver’s downtime by having these products available when they need them the most. Plus, Love’s is a Yokohama SmartSolution-certified service provider”

“Love’s has always adhered to its promise to provide drivers with solutions,” said Dan Jensen, director-tire sales and service for Love’s Travel Stops. “We’ve been pleased with the quality of Yokohama’s products. Adding the ultra wide base option to the Love’s Truck Tire Care line-up is another way we can fulfill our commitment and meet the needs of more drivers.”

Phillips said the TY517 is designed to improve the bottom line of fleets by delivering outstanding traction, long, even wear, extraordinary durability and increased retreadability.

The RY407 – a U.S. Environmental Protection Agency SmartWay-verified tire – features an ultra-low profile that offers excellent fuel efficiency and vastly increased treadlife, adding up to increased payloads.
