he Fuel Max 1AD single-axle drive tire features the traction benefits and features needed to handle freight jobs and yard maneuvers with ease
The Goodyear Tire & Rubber Company has announced the next addition to the purpose-driven Fuel Max lineup, the Fuel Max 1AD, for single-axle drive tractors handling super regional, less-than-truckload, or LTL, applications. The tyre is designed to deliver the traction features, milage and fuel efficiency today’s fleets require.
The new Fuel Max 1AD is Goodyear’s best premium super-regional single-axle drive tyre and available now in 295/75R22.5 Load Range G. The tyre is made with an innovative tread design and incorporates features and compounds meant to offer long miles to removal.
“The Fuel Max 1AD tyre is designed to handle the demanding high torque seen on single axle tractors with the mileage, traction and fuel efficiency our customers demand in a premium product,” said Tom Lippello, senior director, Commercial Marketing, Goodyear North America. “Its long-lasting tread design features encapsulated shoulder siping to help maintain single-axle traction and is designed to keep your freight moving efficiently in the toughest conditions.”
Other features and benefits of the new Fuel Max 1AD tyre include:
- Innovative New Tread Compound designed specifically for the demanding high torque seen in super regional applications on single axle drive tractors.
- Hybrid Lug-to-Rib Tread Pattern enhances traction and helps improve rolling resistance while delivering more wearable rubber for longer tread life.
- High Waffle Blade Density to pull point throughout the center and shoulder ribs helps achieve 3PMSF traction and stiffens tread for long miles to removal.
Fuel Max 1AD has high scrub resistance for tight turns and yard mobility with a tread that resists tearing and cracking. The Fuel Max 1AD also meets testing requirements for Three Peak Mountain Snowflake (3PMSF) standards.
