Yokohama's 124R was designed for regional pick-up/delivery fleets and the 714R was designed for urban pick-up/delivery applications.

Yokohama Tire has introduced size expansions for two of its commercial tires, the 124R and 714R. The tires will be on display in Yokohama’s TMC booth 3139, March 4-7 in New Orleans, LA.

The all-season 124R also meets or exceeds the industry’s required performance criteria for severe snow service and carries the three-peak mountain snowflake symbol on the sidewall, Yokohama said.

According to Yokohama, benefits of the 124R include:

  • Year-round traction;
  • Extended tread life;
  • Rock shield platforms;
  • Six-year unlimited retread casing warranty on all 17.5-in. and 19.5-in. sizes and a seven-year warranty on all 22.5-in. sizes. 

According to Yokohama, benefits of the 714R include:

  • Traction;
  • Long tread life;
  • Durable construction;
  • Fuel-efficient operation;
  • Backed by Yokohama’s seven-year unlimited retread casing warranty.
