AKRON, OHIO — The Goodyear Tire & Rubber Company has a new medium-duty, commercial drive tire that features long life and quiet performance. Available in six sizes and load ranges, the Goodyear Unisteel G182 RSD tire is designed with a deep (28/32nd-inch) open lug pattern for excellent handling in wet or snowy conditions. The tire also has a graduated tie-bar on the shoulder that provides added strength and improved traction, as well as reduced irregular wear. As part of Goodyear’s introduction, the company is offering G182 pre-cure retreads — available in early 2006 — so customers can use this innovative tread pattern as a first retread.
