Drive tire features Fuel Max technology

Goodyear is putting more tread on the road while leaving more diesel in the tank with the introduction of its new G572 LHD drive tire with Fuel Max technology. EPA SmartWay-verified, the G572 LHD features 30/32nds of tread.
Donn Kramer, Goodyear’s director of marketing for commercial tires, said, “The tire replaces our G372A LHD, which features the same tread depth. But the G572 is nearly 10% better in lowering rolling resistance, which translates to better miles per gallon. Our testing also shows the new drive tire to be excellent in dry and wet stopping distances, plus overall traction. When used in conjunction with Goodyear Fuel Max steer and trailer tires, operators can expect up to a 4-plus percent increase in fuel economy, as compared to standard Goodyear tires.”
The G572 LHD features Goodyear’s exclusive TredLock technology, which interlocks microgrooves to stabilize the tread for enhanced tread life while promoting even wear.
“We also engineered circumferential and lateral tread grooves into the G572 LHD, which gives the tire all-season performance. Penetration protectors also help keep stone drilling to a minimum to provide a long-lasting casing, able to handle multiple retreads,” said Kramer.
The G572 LHD’s belt package features four ultra-tensile steel belts to reinforce the tread while giving the tire a solid foundation for retreading.
This tire comes in four sizes: 11R22.5 and 11R24.5 (in G and H load ratings); and 295/75R22.5, and 285/75R24.5—both in G load ratings.
