Freightliner adds Yokohama as OE option

April 22, 2015

Yokohama Tire Corp.'s complete line of commercial truck tires is now an OE option for fleets purchasing new Freightliner trucks.

“All our truck tires, including ultra wide base, drive, trailer and steer/all-position, are now an option in Freightliner’s Data Book,” says Rick Phillips, Yokohama's vice president of sales. “This means when fleet owners are deciding on tires for a brand-new Freightliner truck, they now can include Yokohama in the mix. It’s part of our ‘focus on fleets’ initiative to make sure fleets can get the tires they want.”

Mary Aufdemberg, director of product marketing for Freightliner Trucks says, “Freightliner is always looking for ways to help our fleet customers run successful businesses, and that includes offering customizable options for new truck orders. The addition of Yokohama in our Data Book gives them more quality tires to choose from.”
