Yokohama Tire’s lineup at the upcoming TMC Show will include three new products and spotlight its last-mile delivery and ultra wide-base tire offerings. In all, more than a dozen commercial truck tires will be on display at the show, which runs from Feb. 27 to Mr. 1 in Orlando, Florida.
“This is one of our strongest and most versatile showings we’ve had at TMC,” said Dan Funkhouser, Yokohama Tire vice president of commercial sales. “Attendees will definitely see the breadth of our product line and how we can help fleets with their bottom lines.”
New tires on display include:
- 114R: With its high-scrub tread compound and rounded shoulder ribs, the 114R is designed for fleet owners and managers who are looking to maximize tire life in regional haul and spread-axle operations. The SmartWay-verified tire is available in six sizes: 11R22.5, 295/75R22.5, 285/75R24.5, 11R24.5, 255/70R22.5 and 275/70R22.5.
- 716U UWB: This new weight-savings drive tire carries more profitability for fleets, Yokohama said. The 716U UWB is designed specifically for waste, recycling and on/off-road severe service operations where maximizing payload capacity really counts. “With its reliable all-season traction and durable construction, it really is the perfect drive tire for the job,” said Funkhouser. The 716U is available in size 445/55R22.5.
- 121T: A true regional trailer tire for all seasons, the 121T is specifically designed for trailer use only. The 121T is severe snow service-rated in all weather conditions and is offered in sizes 215/75R17.5, 235/75R17.5 and 245/75R17.5.
