SANTA ANA, Calif. (Feb. 17, 2017) — Yokohama Tire Corp.'s (YTC) newest all-weather radial tire for graders, loaders and dozers will debut next month at the ConExpo-Con/Agg 2017 trades show in Las Vegas.
The MYX S01 will be among the OTR and commercial tire offerings featured at the tire maker's booth, No. C22231.
According to Yokohama, The MYX S01 radial is designed with advanced siping in the tread, which the tire maker claims provides excellent traction on snow and icy surfaces. The non-directional tread also provides year-round versatility and abrasive resistance, which can lead to longer service life, Yokohama said.
The tire will be available in sizes 17.5R25.

- RB42, a 35-inch radial for dump trucks;
- RL45, a 25-inch radial for articulated dump trucks, scrapers and loaders;
- RT41 L-4, 25-inch radial specifically built for loaders and dozers; and
- Y524L5, a 33-inch bias tire for loaders and dozers in difficult mining and quarry applications.
