Goodyear’s Endurance RSA 17.5-inch ULT will be available in the second quarter of 2022 in 215/75R17.5 size. Additional sizes will be added in the middle of 2022.

Goodyear Tire & Rubber Co. is responding to demand in the last-mile delivery sector with a new tire size in the Endurance RSA ULT. The tire is Goodyear's first "electric vehicle-ready" commercial tire.

Compatible with electric-, gas- or diesel-powered work vehicles, the Endurance RSA ULT is a 17.5-inch all-position tire for last-mile delivery vehicles, pickup trucks and light trucks. It will be Goodyear's first commercial tire stamped with the company's “Electric Drive Ready” badge.

Here's a look at some of the Endurance RSA ULT's features:

• IntelliMax Rib Technology stiffens tire tread for longer tread life and more deliveries.

• New tread geometry applied to the bottom of the grooves helps reduce stress and casing damage.

• The deep, open zig-zag tread pattern with stone-penetration protectors helps enhance traction and resist stone retention on urban streets.

• With both the mud and snow (M+S) and three-peak mountain snowflake (3PMSF) designations, the tread design is made for difficult winter weather.

• The premium casing provides durability from curbing for maximum retread-ability.

Goodyear’s Endurance RSA 17.5-inch ULT will be available in the second quarter of 2022 in 215/75R17.5 size. Additional sizes will be added in the middle of 2022.

Goodyear unveiled the new size of the Endurance RSA ULT at the 2022 Technology & Maintenance Council (TMC) Show hosted by the American Trucking Associations.

The tiremaker also displayed the Goodyear Fuel Max RSA ULT for regional pickup and delivery service; it's available in two sizes: 225/70R19.5 and 245/70R19.5.

“As electrification shapes the future of the trucking industry and the last- mile delivery market accelerates at a rapid pace, we’re relentlessly innovating as we develop new tires to help fleets meet evolving expectations,” says Jessica Julian, product marketing manager at Goodyear. “The launch of the fuel-saving Fuel Max RSA and EV-ready Endurance RSA underscores Goodyear’s commitment to offering specialized tires for every application so companies can find the right solution for their fleets.”
