AKRON — Goodyear has added two super-single sizes to its Workhorse MSA off-the-road tire line designed for construction, logging, oil and mining applications.
The new sizes, 425/65R22.5 and 385/65R22.5, provide customers an expanded lineup for more applications, according to Jessica Julian, commercial product marketing manager, Goodyear North America.
"For jobs that take you on- and off-road, these new MSA tire sizes will help deliver long miles to removal with enhanced toughness and retreadability," Julian said.
According to Goodyear, the new Workhorse MSA sizes feature:
- A deep tread for long miles to removal;
- A tread compound designed for mixed service applications to help improve miles to removal and cut/chip resistance;
- A fully reinforced steel belt casing that helps provide excellent retreadability through multiple cycles; and
- Stone protectors help to resist drilling and enhance overall toughness.
The portfolio is part of Goodyear's Total Mobility platform of providing trusted products, a premier service network and complete tire management for customers, the company said.
Earlier this year, Goodyear previewed a second truck tire that uses soybean oil in place of petroleum-based materials in the rubber compounding, the Endurance WHA waste-haul tire.
