Tough Mixed-Service Tire

Goodyear Tire & Rubber has introduced its all-new Armor Max Pro Grade MSD tire for construction, cement, dump, and coal-field trucks. It’s said to build on the toughness of the Goodyear G177, while providing enhanced traction and miles to removal.

It’s available with Goodyear’s DuraSeal Technology, which instantly seals nail-hole punctures of up to ΒΌ-inch in diameter in the repairable area of its tread.

The Armor Max Pro Grade MSD also boasts a premium-quality casing for enhanced retreadability, says Goodyear. Other features include a rugged tread design for “excellent” on- and off-road traction with a tough tread compound to help resist chipping and chunking. There’s a special mixed-service undertread compound for enhanced casing toughness and a cool-running base compound to help provide long tread life and lower rolling resistance

Currently, the tire is available in 11R22.5, 11R24.5, and 12R22.5 sizes, all Load Range H.
