“Part of the Goodyear Total Solution for fleets, the Goodyear Armor Max Pro Grade MSD builds on the toughness of the popular Goodyear G177, while providing enhanced traction, miles to removal and retread ability,” said Evan Perrow, marketing manager, Goodyear. “This fuel-efficient tire also achieves Greenhouse Gas (GHG) compliance, enabling it to meet increasingly stringent environmental requirements.”

Perrow added that the tires come with Goodyear’s DuraSeal technology that seals nail hole punctures.

“Goodyear DuraSeal Technology helps keeps trucks up and running and reduces expensive downtime,” he added.

The Goodyear Armor Max Pro Grade MSD features include:

  • A rugged tread design for excellent on- and off-road traction
  • A tough tread compound to help resist chipping and chunking
  • A special mixed-service undertread compound for enhanced casing toughness
  • A cool-running base compound to help provide long tread life and lower rolling resistance

Currently, the Goodyear Armor Max Pro Grade MSD is available in the following sizes: 11R22.5, 11R24.5 and 12R22.5, all Load Range H.

“Goodyear’s Total Solution is designed to help hardworking fleets lower their operating costs,” said Perrow. “We believe the new Goodyear Armor Max Pro Grade MSD will contribute to the achievement of this critical objective in a big way.”
