AKRON, Ohio– Goodyear has unveiled its longest-wearing waste haul tire that it believes will become the “go-to” tire for waste haul fleets across North America today.
“Goodyear wants to help waste haul fleets lower their operating costs, and the new Endurance WHA will do just that by offering more miles to removal and other important benefits,” said Andrea Russell, brand manager, Goodyear Commercial Tire Systems.
The new tire was unveiled at Waste Expo, which is taking place this week at the Las Vegas Convention Center.
“Our goal is to provide the Total Solution for waste haul fleets, including premium new tires and retreads, world-class service and support, and smart business tools to help fleets become more profitable,” added Russell. “Waste Expo was the ideal venue for the introduction of the all-new Goodyear Endurance WHA, which will offer more miles to removal than any previous Goodyear waste haul tire, plus other cost-reducing benefits that waste haul fleets have come to expect from Goodyear.”
Goodyear’s DuraSeal Technology is an optional feature of the tire.
“Goodyear is the only tire company that offers a built-in tire sealant, which is of tremendous benefit to waste haul trucks that roll across debris-strewn surfaces at dumps and waste transfer stations,” said Russell. “Goodyear DuraSeal Technology helps preserve valuable truck uptime and is another component of Goodyear’s Total Solution for waste haul.”
The company says the tire will be available in late 2015 in size 315/80R22.5, Load Range L. The Goodyear Endurance WHA also features:
New sidewall protector shingles to help resist sidewall scuffing in high-scrub applications, which will help enhance casing life
A steel belt and casing package for enhanced toughness, endurance and retreadability
An optimized shoulder design to help direct pressure away from the tire’s outer tread, which promotes uniform tread wear
Four wide circumferential grooves for all-season traction on wet, snow-covered and dry roads in stop/start waste haul truck applications
A wide footprint to enhance cornering and handling when used on local streets
The tire can also be retreaded at Goodyear Commercial Tire & Service Network locations.
