SANTA ANA, CA. – (July 7, 2020) – When all-season and high-speed capabilities are a must, Yokohama Tire’s new 115R™ comes through. The all-season tire, which debuted at the TMC Show in February, is now available in size 225/70R19.5 (14).
“The N-speed rated 115R is a tough, all-position tire built to provide class 4 and 5 vehicles with superior year-round traction and dependability to get the job done,” said Tom Clauer, Yokohama’s senior manager of commercial and OTR product planning. “It’s engineered with a heat-resistant compound for better fuel efficiency and longer lasting tread life.
Benefits of the 115R include:
-- High-speed capabilities: Durable casing construction is rated for speeds up to 87 mph.
-- Longer tread life: Yokohama’s advanced heat-resistant tread compound increases tread life and optimizes fuel economy. Additionally, middle wing blocks and tie-bar connectors control block movement to resist wear and reduce rolling resistance.
-- All-season traction: Wide lateral grooves provide increased traction on wet or snow-covered roads, while deep serpentine grooves maintain aggressive traction throughout the life of the original tread.
-- Sidewall protection: Durable construction helps defend against damage caused by curbing and scrubbing in typical urban operations.
