FULLERTON, Calif. -- Yokohama’s new TY517 commercial tire has been added to the US Environmental Protection Agency’s (EPA) SmartWay list of verified technologies. Yokohama, which now has nine products recognized as SmartWay “low rolling resistance tires,” will be debuting the TY517 at the Mid-America Trucking Show this March.

SmartWay Transport, a collaboration between the EPA and the freight sector, is designed to improve energy efficiency and reduce greenhouse gas and air pollutant emissions.

The TY517, Yokohama’s latest ultra wide-base drive tire, is now available in size 445/50R22.5.

“The TY517 meets the SmartWay program’s stringent verified low rolling resistance criteria because it runs cooler and helps reduce fuel consumption, which cuts costs for fleets and benefits the environment,” said Rick Phillips, Yokohama’s director of commercial sales. “We’re proud to be recognized by the EPA for our environmental initiatives and look forward to being part of the SmartWay program for years to come.”
