The Yokohama MY627W, which replaces the Y773, offers new features designed to deliver longer tread life, added durability and reduced operating costs for trucks used in the demanding waste and sanitation industry. Specially designed for vehicle operations that require a high load-carrying capacity per tire, as in waste pick-up operations, the company says it "…can reduce operating costs because of its great durability and longevity, plus it’s highly retreadable.”

The design is said to help reduce heat in stop-and-go driving and we’re told that it features a tread compound that’s resistant to chips and cuts.

Highlights of this waste/sanitation tire include a wide outside rib with extra-wide serpentine grooves, said to resist tears. Sidewall indentations dissipate heat during stop-and-go driving to prolong casing life, Yokohama says. And the wider tread of the MY627W aims to distribute wear across a larger surface area, providing enhanced traction and longer mileage.

The MY627W will be available next month in 315/80R22.5 size, load range L.
