Yokohama will launch two new commercial tires at the Mid-America Trucking Show in Louisville this month: the TY517 ultra-wide-base drive tire and the RY407 ultra-wide-base trailer tire. The two new tires highlight the latest technology in casing design, tread design, and rubber compounding,” the company says.
The TY517, a SmartWay-verified tire, is claimed to “deliver outstanding traction, long, even wear, extraordinary durability and increased retreadability.” It’s available now in size 445/50R22.5.
The RY407, also a SmartWay-verified tire, features an ultra-low profile and “offers excellent fuel efficiency and significant weight savings, which add up to increased payloads,” says Yokohama. A retreadable product, it’s also available now in size 445/50R22.5.
