SmartWay-verified, Goodyear’s latest tire balances longer life with fuel-economy improvements. The new G572 LHD drive tire sports ‘Fuel Max’ technology and 30/32nds of tread, said to be the deepest-tread drive tire with SmartWay approval on the market.
The tire replaces the G372A LHD, which has the same tread depth, but the G572 is said to be nearly 10% better in lowering rolling resistance, this improving fuel economy. Goodyear says testing also shows the new drive tire to be excellent in dry and wet stopping distances, plus overall traction.
When used in conjunction with Goodyear Fuel Max steer and trailer tires, operators can expect up to a 4%-plus increase in fuel economy, as compared to standard Goodyear tires, the company claims.
The G572 LHD features ‘TredLock’ technology, which interlocks microgrooves to stabilize the tread for enhanced tread life while promoting even wear. Circumferential and lateral tread grooves give the tire all-season performance. Penetration protectors also help keep stone drilling to a minimum to provide a long-lasting casing, able to handle multiple retreads, says the company.
The G572 LHD’s belt package features four ultra-tensile steel belts to reinforce the tread and to promote retreadability.
The G572 LHD comes in four sizes: 11R22.5 and 11R24.5 (in G and H load ratings); and 295/75R22.5, and 285/75R24.5 – both in G load ratings.
