Double Coin Tire Earns SmartWay Verification
China Manufacturers Alliance LLC (CMA) reports the Double Coin RLB450 drive position tire has met the requirements for the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s (EPA) SmartWay technology program.
The EPA has verified the RLB450 has met the low rolling resistance tire performance criteria for new tires being used in the drive position on a line-haul Class 8 tractor trailer.
Since 2004, EPA’s SmartWay Technology Program tests and verifies the performance of vehicles, technologies and equipment that have the potential to lower greenhouse gases and other air pollutants from freight transport.
“Double Coin’s ultra-premium RLB450 is a regional/long-haul drive-position tire designed to deliver superior traction in all weather conditions,” says Teresa Galvan, director of customer service at CMA/Double Coin. “The RLB450 meets today’s transportation requirements and joins six other Double Coin fuel efficient models in our product line.
“We are very pleased to have our premium products recognized by the EPA for our low rolling resistance technology. Our customers can be assured that using any of our low rolling resistance tires will assist them in reducing emissions and increasing fuel mileage.”
Besides the RLB450, Double Coin has six tires that are SmartWay certified. These are Double Coin’s RR680, FR605, FD405, FT105, FT125, and the FD425.
