AKRON (Oct. 30, 2015) — Goodyear rolled out the Fuel Max RSA, a commercial truck tire that it claims provides improved fuel economy for regional/long-haul driving and enhanced toughness for driving in urban environments.
The Fuel Max RSA is a SmartWay-compliant tire that also delivers extended mileage and a high level of traction.
The RSA is available initially in just one size, 11R22.5, Load Range G. Additional sizes — including 295/75R22.5 and 11R24.5 in Load Ranges G and H, and 11R22.5 in Load Range H — will be introduced in early 2016.
“The new Fuel Max RSA has been designed to deliver numerous benefits to help lower the operating costs of regional/long haul fleets that operate mainly on-highway and have some exposure to urban driving,” said Norberto Flores, marketing manager, Goodyear.
“Despite the fact that fuel costs have declined in recent months, fuel efficiency will remain a prominent fleet requirement, which is why we're extending Goodyear Fuel Max Technology to regional tires.”
The Fuel Max RSA features:
- Goodyear Fuel Max Technology, which contains cool-running compounds to lower tire rolling resistance and improve fuel efficiency
- A tri-layer compound for exceptional mileage, rolling resistance and curb impact resistance
- A non-evolving tread to help maintain traction through the tire's lifecycle
- Super-tensile steel belts to add stability and enhance toughness
- Goodyear Unisteel casing construction for optimal retreadability
- A computer-optimized tread design and footprint for more miles to removal
- Goodyear's IntelliMax Rib Technology, which provides a stiffer tread area for lower rolling resistance, higher mileage and even wear.
“The Fuel Max RSA also offers outstanding snow traction thanks to its innovative tread design and boasts a 20/32-inch tread depth for lower cost-per-mile,” Mr. Flores said.
“We are confident that this product will be enthusiastically embraced by fleets that are looking for an excellent all-around tire to help enhance their operational efficiency and lower their costs.”
