Yokohama Tire Corp. has launched a new fuel-efficient long-haul drive tire: the TY577 MC2. Now available in the U.S., the SmartWay-verified TY577 MC2 comes in sizes 295/75R22.5, 11R22.5, 285/75R24.5 and 11R24.5, and is also offered in 16-ply construction.

“The TY577 MC2 delivers it all: exceptional traction, long even wear, superior durability, low rolling resistance and incredible fuel efficiency,” says Tom Clauer, Yokohama Tire’s manager of commercial and OTR product planning. “It’s definitely a long-lasting money-saver.”

Clauer says the TY577 MC2 combines an ultra-deep tread pattern with Yokohama’s MC2 technology, which minimizes the effects of heat on the casing and tread, providing extreme low rolling resistance to reduce fleets’ cost-per-mile.

Besides fuel efficiency, other benefits of the TY577 MC2 include:

* Long tread life achieved by a 30/32-inch deep groove depth that delivers a firm and stable road grip while maximizing run-out mileage, plus, the closed shoulder rib enables more rubber-to-road contact for long, even wear. Also, the stress wear control groove redistributes more load to the outside rib, greatly reducing the chance of shoulder step-down wear.

* Casing durability thanks to Yokohama’s STEM-2 technology, which redirects destructive casing flex. This leads to improved casing durability and retreadability. Additionally, the funnel-shaped groove reduces stone retention and increases block rigidity for improved traction and wear rate.
