WAKEFIELD, Mass. — Yokohama Off-Highway Tires America Inc. has released its Yokohama RR42 IND-4 steel-belted radial in the 480/95R25 size, built for the new class of straddle carriers that are increasing container handling efficiency.
The tire size is capable for use of loads of up to 37,500 pounds at 15 mph and rated for speeds up to 21.7 mph.
The Yokohama RR42 features deep circumferential grooves to minimize vibration and reduce tread wear. Even after 80 percent of the compound has been worn, the grooves remain, maximizing tire life and performance, the tire maker said.
