Goodyear Completes AS-3A Tire Size Lineup

Posted on October 25, 2017

Goodyear Tire & Rubber Co. has added a size, 20.5R25, to the AS-3A tire for construction, mining and quarry applications.

The 20.5R25 has a 40/32-inch tread depth (G3/L3) for enhanced traction.

“This important addition completes the tire’s size lineup, which covers a full range of applications and conditions, including snow and ice-covered surfaces that require exceptional traction,” says Eric Matson, global field engineering manager for Goodyear.

Features of the Goodyear AS-3A include:

  • specially placed blades for optimized ice and snow traction;
  • multiple groove edges for excellent traction across all surfaces;
  • flexible block elements for low stone retention;
  • wide-base construction for high flotation, enhanced stability and low ground pressure; and
  • a unique groove shape for optimized self-cleaning in all conditions.

In 2018 Goodyear plans to add a high-demand retread size, 23.5R25, for the AS-3A in 2018.

The new retread size will complement the existing tread rubber selection for the AS-3A: sizes 14.00R24/25, 16.00R24/25, 16.00x24, 17.5R25, 20.5R25 and 20.5x25.

“Goodyear’s goal is to help end users enhance their productivity while lowering their operating costs,” Matson says. “We are confident that the now-complete Goodyear AS-3A tire line will help accomplish that.”
