The company says other benefits of the 715R include:

  • Longer wear, which is achieved by a deep 26/32-inch tread pattern, along with a tread design featuring tie bars that control block movement and significantly minimize heel/toe wear.
  • Maximum traction, due to open shoulder blocks that are that help minimize the retention of foreign objects.
  • Fuel efficiency, which is achieved by Yokohama’s compound that’s cut and chip resistant and reduces rolling resistance.
  • Higher load capacity, provided by 16-ply construction and an H load-rating.
