Yokohama Unveils a Regional All-Position Steer Tire

Posted on April 1, 2016

Yokohama Tire Corp.'s new 108R regional all-position/steer tire is now available to fleets in the U.S. and Canada. SmartWay-verified, the 108R comes in sizes 295/75R22.5, 285/75R24.5, 11R24.5, and 11R22.5.

The 108R features Yokohama’s STEM-2 technology, which minimizes flex in the casing.

“The 108R will give fleets a competitive edge for extended regional-haul and urban high-scrub applications,” says Dan Funkhouser, director of commercial dealer sales for Yokohama. “Thanks to its deep, 22/32nd tread depth and 16-ply construction, the 108R will consistently deliver more miles and more profits.”

Yokohama promotes these benefits with the 108R:

  • Longer service, achieved via a five-rib tread design, which offers longer, more stable service life while enhancing water dispersion and overall traction on the road.
  • Maximum durability from Yokohama’s STEM-2 (StrainEnergy Minimization) technology, which extends the life of the casing by directing normally destructive stress forces away from critical bead and shoulder areas.
  • A sidewall abrasion guard reduces damage caused by accidental curbing and scrubbing in urban applications.
  • Rock shield platforms keep rocks and debris from reaching the bottom of the groove where they can cause premature casing damage.
