Yokohama Commercial Truck Tire Gets New Size
Yokohama Tire Corp. has added a size, 225/70R19.5 (14), to its 115R commercial truck tire, which debuted earlier this year.
“The N-speed rated 115R is a tough, all-position tire built to provide Class 4 and 5 vehicles with superior, year-round traction and dependability to get the job done,” says Tom Clauer, Yokohama’s senior manager of commercial and OTR product planning. “It’s engineered with a heat-resistant compound for better fuel efficiency and longer-lasting tread life.”
Other features include durable casing construction for high-speed capabilities; middle wing blocks and tie bar connectors for wear resistance; wide, lateral grooves for increased traction on wet and snow-covered roads; and more.
