Yokohama Tire Debuting Two New, Long-lasting SmartWay®-verified Tires

Yokohama Tire is helping fleets get more from their tires by introducing two long-lasting, fuel-efficient products – the 712L and 114R UWB. The two SmartWay®-verified low rolling resistance tires will be on display in the Yokohama booth (#3109) at the TMC show in Atlanta, Georgia, March 18-21. All told, Yokohama will display 14 tires at the show, including light-truck and off-the-road.

 

Manufactured in Yokohama’s plant in West Point, Mississippi, the 712L long-haul, drive tire will be available April 1 in four sizes: 295/75R22.5, 11R22.5, 285/75R24.5 and 11R24.5.

 

“The deep-tread 712L offers advanced wear resistance, top-tier fuel-efficiency and traction, and tough, durable construction,” said Tom Clauer, Yokohama’s senior manager of commercial and OTR product planning. “It’s designed for fleets to keep their trucks rolling for a long, long time.”

 

Clauer said the 114R UWB is the successor to the RY407™ UWB and will be available later in the year in size 445/50R22.5.
