Goodyear Launches Three-Star RL-5K OTR Tire

March 21, 2024

Goodyear Tire & Rubber Co. has launched its new three-star RL-5K off-the-road tire for large wheel loaders and wheel dozers.  

The RL-5K is Goodyear’s newest radial OTR tire for large wheel loaders and wheel dozers and is in the size 45/65R45. The tire is constructed to withstand the air pressure necessary to deliver an increased three-star load capacity, according to Goodyear officials.  

The tire also features a deep, 250-level durable tread to deliver cut resistance and traction in severe underfoot conditions. 

“The RL-5K design has been updated to meet the increasing customer need for larger wheel loaders that meet the specifications of the newer vehicles entering the market,” says Loic Ravasio, general manager, of global and Americas OTR.  

“We are continuing to improve our product performance and staying with the evolving market and vehicle requirements to ensure we deliver for our hard-working OTR customers.” 

Features of the new tire include a stronger radial carcass with a bigger bead section; a multi-directional tread pattern to support high torque; hi-Stability technology used in the radial sidewall and casing construction for stability; and more.
