AKRON, Ohio — Three of Goodyear’s truck tire retreads have received SmartWay certification from the US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA): the G316 AT Fuel Max, the G572 LHD Fuel Max and the G305 ATS Fuel Max.

“Our retread products are designed and built to deliver great benefits,” said Brian Buckham, brand manager, line haul and mixed service, Goodyear Commercial Tire Systems. “The G316 AT Fuel Max, the G572 LHD Fuel Max and G305 ATS Fuel Max are prime examples of this.”

The EPA established low rolling resistance requirements for retreaded truck tires this year. Verified low rolling resistance retreaded tires must help reduce truck fuel consumption by at least 3%, according to the EPA.

Currently, nine Goodyear brand new truck tires, as well as three Dunlop brand new truck tires, have received SmartWay verification.

Moving forward, Buckham said that Goodyear plans to submit more truck tire retreads for SmartWay verification, calling SmartWay compliance “an important part of our long-term strategy and an example of our ceaseless focus on helping our customers lower their total cost of operation.”
