Goodyear Launches Fuel-Efficient Truck Tire Lines

August 28, 2006

AKRON, OHIO – Goodyear Tire & Rubber Co. has launched three fuel-efficient linehaul tires, according to Modern Tire Dealer magazine. The tires, all featuring Fuel Max Technology, include the Unisteel G395 LHS steer tire, the Unisteel G305 LHD drive tire, and the Unisteel G316 LHT trailer tire. They are available in standard (11R22.5) and low-profile (295/75R22.5 and 285/75R24.5) sizes. While Goodyear says the tires deliver up to 4-percent improved truck fuel economy, actual Society of Automotive Engineers test results showed an 8-percent improvement in fuel economy compared with standard Goodyear over-the-road tires. Goodyear also is offering UniCircle and precure retreading with Fuel Max Technology. The three fuel-efficient tires will be built in Goodyear’s Topeka, Kan., and Danville, Va., manufacturing plants.
