Goodyear Tire & Rubber Company has launched three new sizes for its Fuel Max RTD (Regional Traction Drive) tire line: 225/70 R19.5 (load range G), 245/70 R19.5 (load range H) and 295/75 R22.5 (load range G).
According to the US brand, all six Fuel Max RTD sizes will be available at original equipment and Goodyear authorized dealers by the second quarter of 2020.
The Goodyear Fuel Max RTD is designed to improve the operational efficiency of regional and urban trucking fleets, balancing fuel efficiency with traction and long mileage, the company claims.

“Three-Peak Mountain Snowflake certification testing is conducted in the harshest winter conditions at a Goodyear facility in Finland above the Arctic Circle,” commented Dustin Lancy, Goodyear commercial product marketing manager. “Combined with our new tread design and compounds, this traction enhances the tire’s performance to maximize grip, fuel efficiency and long miles to removal.”
The Goodyear Fuel Max RTD line is currently available in OE sizes 11 R22.5 (load ranges G and H) and 255/70 R22.5 (load range H).
