Goodyear has launched a new mixed-service truck tire range. According to the tire maker, the tires in the line-up are designed to have a much greater damage resistance and longer service life than previous Goodyear mixed-service tires, plus an accidental damage and retreading guarantee.
Vehicles operating in today’s mixed-service applications – including tippers, cement mixers, concrete pumps and low loaders operating in construction, as well as trucks in the waste, recycling, timber and agricultural industries – face difficult conditions such as driving on unpaved areas.
The Omnitrac range incorporates the company’s new DuraShield technology, which features a top belt for extra resistance to casing damage, which also improves retreadability and robustness.
Ten sizes are available (six Omnitrac S steer tires and four Omnitrac D drive tires), including one new to the mixed-service industry – 315/70 R22.5 – for standard tractors, which are becoming more commonplace in the sector.
The tires are also RFID tagged.
“Today’s mixed service fleet operators are demanding tires that offer both versatile on-road capability and greater resistance to the conditions encountered both on- and off-road,” said Benjamin Willot, director marketing commercial tires Europe at Goodyear.
“Our new Omnitrac tires are a further development of our previous range and now feature DuraShield technology to make them even tougher and offer greater service life. We are so confident of the robustness of these tires that we are guaranteeing them against accidental damage.”
