Yokohama revamps iPad app for truck tires

Yokohama Tire Corp. (YTC) has released version 1.3 of its iPad app for the truck tire industry, the Yokohama Commercial Tire Navigator. It is available on iTunes for free download by clicking here.

The Yokohama Commercial Tire Navigator is designed to help fleet owners and truck operators learn which Yokohama tires are best for various applications and road conditions. It also contains tools to aid with maintaining optimum tire pressure and maximizing fuel savings.

“We launched Yokohama’s latest version of the app at the 2013 Mid-America Trucking Show, where we received some great feedback from our customers,” says Alan Holtschneider, YTC senior manager, marketing communications.

“Business users will find the app to be very easy to use, loaded with information and entertaining as well.”

Updates and features of the new v1.3 version include YTC’s Inflation Pressure Calculator, a tire maintenance tool that recommends appropriate tire inflation levels to prevent tire damage and tire wear. Information and 360-degree tire photography on the new TY517 ultra wide-base drive tire and the new RY407 ultra wide-base trailer tire is included.

Additional features include a Fuel Savings Calculator that compares Yokohama’s fuel-efficient tires against the competition. Also included is information about YTC’s commercial tire line-up, with 360-degree tire photography, including the Zenvironment line and the company’s EPA SmartWay-verified tires.
