AKRON, Ohio – To help reduce operating costs and help fuel-conscious fleets, Goodyear Tire & Rubber Company has released two SmartWay-verified retread products.
G392 UniCircle retread
The G392A SSD UniCircle and G394A SST UniCircle retread products have become SmartWay verified recently said Brian Buckham, general manager, product marketing, Goodyear Commercial Tire Systems.
“These retread products offer many of the same benefits as their new tire counterparts, including lower rolling resistance, which is key to helping fleets lower their fuel costs,” he said. “Our retread products help fleets optimize their tire investment and are a great compliment to our expanding Fuel Max family of fuel-efficient new truck tires.”
The G392S SSD and G394A SST retreads are offered with UniCircle technology – there is no cutting or splicing durig the tread application process which helps extend the life of the casing.
“Another benefit of UniCircle retreads stems from how UniCircle treads are manufactured,” said Buckham. “Goodyear optimizes the UniCircle process to help deliver lower rolling resistance than a flat procure retread. This helps improve fuel economy.
“Ultimately, our goal is to help fleets lower their operating costs. Helping them cut their fuel expenses is a major part of this process. Our SmartWay-verified G392A SSD UniCircle and G394A SST UniCircle wide-base retread products will help do just that, while delivering a wide array of supplemental benefits that together add up to real savings for end users.”
