Goodyear unveils G182 drive tire
Goodyear Tire & Rubber Co. has introduced a new medium-duty drive truck tire, the Goodyear Unisteel G182 RSD.
The tire is available in six sizes and load ranges, say Goodyear officials.
It contains an open lug pattern for rain and snow driving and a graduated tie-bar on the shoulder.
"The graduated tie-bar is an outstanding feature on this new tire," said Steve McClellan, Goodyear’s vice president of commercial tire systems.
"It allows the tire to achieve the long tread life of a closed-shoulder design and the increased traction of an open-shoulder design. The graduated tie-bar also helps the tire retain its 'like-new' appearance throughout the life of the tire."
