Yokohama Tire will launch three new commercial truck tires in booth 3923 at the upcoming TMC show in Atlanta, Georgia, February 24-26. On display will be the all-position 504C™ and 115R™, and the urban pick-up/delivery 714R™. Yokohama will also debut expanded sizes for the 715R™ open shoulder regional drive tire and the 114R™ regional haul ultra-wide-base trailer tire. Yokohama will display a total of 14 tires at the show, including light-truck and off-the-road products.
The 504C, which is manufactured in Yokohama’s plant in West Point, Mississippi, is an aggressive all-position radial engineered with a sturdy
undertread to handle the punishment of on-and-off-highway applications.
“Its improved retreadability and longer overall casing life make it the perfect
performer for jobs that go beyond where the pavement ends,” said Tom Clauer, Yokohama’s senior manager of commercial and OTR product planning. The 504C, which replaces the MY507™, will be available in May in sizes 11R22.5 (H) and 11R24.5 (H).
The 714R features durable construction and outstanding fuel efficiency, making it the perfect addition to any pickup and delivery fleet. “With its wide shoulder grooves, which provide outstanding wet and snow traction, you’ll never miss a stop,” said Clauer. The 714R will be available this summer in sizes 225/70R19.5 (14) and 245/70R19.5 (16).
Also debuting this summer is the 115R, a tough, all-season/all-position tire built to provide class 4 and 5 vehicles with superior year-round traction and dependability to get the job done. It’s engineered with a heat-resistant compound for better fuel efficiency and longer lasting tread. Plus, it has an N speed rating (87 mph). The 115R will be initially be available in a 225/70R19.5 (14).
New sizes for the 715R – Yokohama’s SmartWay® Verified open shoulder regional drive tire – are available now in 295/75R22.5, 285/75R24.5 and 11R24.5. Manufactured in Mississippi, the deep-tread, fuel-efficient 715R is already available in 11R22.5.
