Yokohama will launch 2 truck tires at MATS

Yokohama Tire Corp. is launching two new commercial tires at the Mid-America Trucking Show (MATS) at the Kentucky Expo Center in Louisville, Kentucky, March 21-23, 2013.

The new tires are the TY517 ultra-wide base drive tire and the RY407 ultra wide-base trailer tire. Both will be showcased in Yokohama’s booth number 14124

“The two new tires highlight our latest technology in casing design, tread design and rubber compounding,” says Rick Phillips, Yokohama’s director of commercial sales.

Phillips says the TY517, which is a SmartWay-verified tire, “delivers outstanding traction, long, even wear, extraordinary durability and increased retreadability – all designed to cut the bottom line.” It is available now in size 445/50R22.5.

The RY407, also a SmartWay-verified tire, features an ultra-low profile and “offers excellent fuel efficiency and significant weight savings, which add up to increased payloads. There’s less weight because there’s one tire and wheel assembly instead of two. And because of its unique design and construction, the RY407 is a very durable and a retreadable product.” The RY407 is available now in size 445/50R22.5.
