SANTA ANA, Calif. — Yokohama Tire Corp. has introduced the 115R all-season, N-speed-rated tire for Class 4 and 5 vehicles.
"The N-speed rated 115R is a tough, all-position tire built to provide class 4 and 5 vehicles with superior year-round traction and dependability to get the job done," Tom Clauer, Yokohama's senior manager of commercial and OTR product planning, said.
"It's engineered with a heat-resistant compound for better fuel efficiency and longer lasting tread life."
Yokohama said the benefits of the 115R include:
- Durable casing construction rated for speeds up to 87 mph;
- Yokohama's advanced heat-resistant tread compound to increase tread life and optimize fuel economy. Additionally, middle wing blocks and tie-bar connectors control block movement to resist wear and reduce rolling resistance.
- Wide lateral grooves for increased traction on wet or snow-covered roads, while deep serpentine grooves maintain traction throughout the life of the original tread; and
- Durable construction to help reduce damage caused by curbing and scrubbing in typical urban operations.
