The tire is available in size 14.00R24.

Tom Clauer, senior manager of commercial and off-the-road tire product planning, says, the tire offers “more bite on the ice.

“The RS02 is designed specifically for snow and ice service, featuring a unique winter compound and versatile tread pattern to make sure the job gets done, no matter the weather conditions.”

The RS02 offers:

maximum winter traction: A specially formulated winter compound and hundreds of biting edges combine to provide enhanced traction on ice and snow. The large hexagonal bead bundle adds strength and eliminates slippage.

long, reliable service: The high turn-up construction provides lateral stability and added sidewall protection to combine for a long-lasting, durable tire. Yokohama’s OTR belt wire protects the heavy-duty belt package to provide puncture resistance, and the non-directional tread pattern makes mounting and rotating easier.
