SANTA ANA, Calif. – Yokohama Tire Corporation’s TY527 premium drive tire is now available in three new 16-ply sizes: 295/75R22.5, 11R22.5 and 11R24.5. The TY527 is also available in its original 14-ply, 285/75R24.5 size.
“The TY527 is ideal for regional, high scrub and long-haul applications for 2- and 3-axle tractor applications,” said Dan Funkhouser, Yokohama director of commercial dealer sales. “The TY527’s deep, 32/32nd tread depth and 16-ply construction more than meet today’s modern fleet challenges of long life and superior performance.”
Yokohama said benefits of the TY527 include: durable, long, even mileage achieved via a directional tread pattern that reduces block movement and resists heel and toe wear under high torque conditions; managed operating temperature, thanks to an enhanced temperature controlling cap compound which produces stronger, more pliable rubber that minimizes heat generation;and maximum durability resulting from Yokohama’s special STEM-2 (StrainEnergy Minimization) technology .
