Goodyear rolls out new Marathon tire line


AKRON, Ohio – The Goodyear Tire & Rubber Company revealed three new tires to assist in long haul operations by lowering cost with more miles to removal.

Goodyear says its new mid-tier Marathon line, the Marathon LHS, Marathon LHD and Marathon LHT will help long haul fleets go the distance thanks to a variety of features that help promote long tire life, plus SmartWay-verified fuel efficiency and a high degree of traction.

“Trusted products are a key element of the Goodyear Total Solution, which helps fleets lower their operating costs,” said Brian Buckham, general manager, product marketing, Goodyear, “and our new Marathon tires have been engineered to offer exactly that.”

The Goodyear Marathon LHS has been designed for the steer position and features:

  • Five-rib construction to help provide uniform wear and long tire life
  • Pressure distribution grooves to help promote even wear
  • Enhanced tread compounds for SmartWay-verified fuel efficiency and low cost-per-mile
  • Steel belt construction to balance fuel economy and mileage
  • Lateral grooves and rib edge sipes to help enhance traction in all weather conditions

Designed for the drive position, the Goodyear Marathon LHD features:

  • Goodyear Tredlock Technology with interlocking micro-grooves to help stabilize the tread for more miles to removal
  • Semi-solid shoulder ribs to help provide long life
  • Highly siped center rib and lateral grooves to offer excellent all-season traction
  • Enhanced tread compounds for SmartWay-verified fuel efficiency and low cost-per-mile

The Goodyear Marathon LHT, designed for the trailer position, contains:

  • Strong casing construction to help enhance tire life, toughness and retreadability
  • A special, protective shoulder compound that helps guard the tire’s outer tread from curb damage
  • Fuel-saving compounds to help reduce energy loss and achieve SmartWay-verified performance

The Marathon LHS is available in size 295/75R22.5 (Load Ranges G and H) and will be available in size 11R22.5 (Load Ranges G and H) in June. In July, the tire will be available in size 285/75R24.5 (Load Range G) and 11R24.5 (Load Ranges G and H.) The Marathon LHD is available in size 295/75R22.5 (Load Range G) and will be available in size 11R22.5 (Load Range G) in June. Sizes 285/75R24.5 (Load Range G) and 11R24.5 (Load Ranges G and H) will be available in December 2016. The Marathon LHT is available in size 295/75R22.5 (Load Range G) and will be available in size 11R22.5 (Load Range G) next month. Sizes 285/75R24.5 (Load Range G) and 11R24.5 (Load Range G) will be added in July.

“Tires represent a significant investment, especially for budget-conscious fleets,” said Buckham. “Our new, mid-tier Marathon long haul tires offer more miles to removal and SmartWay-verified fuel efficiency, which will help long haul fleets optimize their tire assets.”

    Good year has the worst quality tyres as I bought new car 3 months ago with Goodyear tyre.
    Now 1 of the tyre has technical problem and not in the condition to use and I am chasing Good Year since last 10 days and not getting feedback or response whether you will replace the tyre or not. I driving with out spare tyre since then. I will not recommend the tyre any more as service is worst too along with quality.
