Yokohama Adds Three Sizes to TY527 Drive Tire

Yokohama Tire Corp. has added three 16-ply size offerings to its TY527 premium drive tire. The new sizes are: 295/75R22.5, 11R22.5 and 11R24.5. The TY527 is also available in its original 14-ply, 285/75R24.5 size.

“The TY527 is ideal for regional, high scrub and long-haul applications for two- and three-axle tractor applications,” says Dan Funkhouser, Yokohama director of commercial dealer sales.

Yokohama says the TY527 tire provides durable, long, even mileage achieved via a directional tread pattern that reduces block movement and resists heel and toe wear under high torque conditions.

Also, the tire’s stress wear control grooves alleviate contact pressure on the edge of the outside tread blocks, allowing the shoulder edge to flex easier to prevent irregular wear.

The TY 527 tire also manages operating temperature, thanks to an enhanced temperature controlling cap compound which produces stronger, more pliable rubber that minimizes heat generation and allows deep tread depths to provide greater stability, reduced tread squirm and high abrasion resistance.

The company says its special STEM-2 (StrainEnergy Minimization) technology that extends the life of the casing by directing destructive stress forces away from critical bead and shoulder areas, minimizing flex in the casing.  Additionally, stone damage prevention grooves thwart rocks and debris from reaching the bottom of the groove where they can cause premature casing damage.
