Yokohama Tire Corp.'s Yokohama 103ZR medium truck tire is in full production and available in four sizes.
The tire is part of Yokohama's eco-friendly Z.environment line. The line, which also includes the Yokohama 703ZL and the Yokohama 501ZA, "has been a great success," says John Cooney, Yokohama's director of commercial sales, "and we feel the 103ZR will achieve the same result."
The 103ZR is available in the following sizes: 295/75R22.5, 11R22.5, 285/75R24 and 11R24.5.
The tire contains special rock ejector platforms; stronger and more pliable rubber to reduce heat generation and reduce rolling resistance; and other features, according to Yokohama officials.
