“The new Fuel Max RSA has been designed to deliver numerous benefits to help lower the operating costs of regional/long haul fleets that operate mainly on-highway and have some exposure to urban driving,” said Norberto Flores, marketing manager for Goodyear.
“Despite the fact that fuel costs have declined in recent months, fuel efficiency will remain a prominent fleet requirement, which is why we’re extending Goodyear Fuel Max Technology to regional tires,” he added.
Goodyear Fuel Max Technology consists of cool-running compounds to lower tire-rolling resistance and improve fuel efficiency, the tiremaker said.
The tire also has Goodyear’s IntelliMax Rib Technology with a stiffer tread area for lower rolling resistance, higher mileage and even wear, Flores said.
The Fuel Max RSA is currently available in size 11R22.5, Load Range G. More sizes – including 295/75R22.5 and 11R24.5 in Load Ranges G and H, and 11R22.5 in Load Range H – will be introduced in 2016.
