Four General Truck Tires Verified by SmartWay

Four General Tire brand truck tires have been added to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) SmartWay Transport Partnership’s list of verified fuel savings technologies.

General S581, S371, D660 and ST250 truck tires were recently verified by SmartWay as low rolling resistance tires. The General S581 long-haul steer tire features an 18/32nds, 5-rib tread design, designed to provide excellent wet traction and lateral stability, the company said. The General S371 long-haul steer and drive tire has 20/32nds tread depth. General said its tread compound provides long highway miles while resisting cuts and tears in off-highway use. The D660 is a long-haul drive tire with 30/32nds tread depth and a closed shoulder tread design for long, even wear. The ST250, a long-haul trailer tire, features 13/32nds tread depth, a stone ejection system and the patented VAI visual alignment indicators to alert drivers of tracking problems, according to the company.

General truck tires are manufactured at the Continental Tire the Americas plant in Mt. Vernon, Ill. Continental also participates in the SmartWay Transport Partnership as a shipper partner, committing to reduce its environmental impacts from ground freight transportation. The majority of Continental and General Tire products are shipped within SmartWay’s environmentally sensitive guidelines, the tiremaker said.
