GOODYEAR LAUNCHES NEW RANGE OF MIXED-SER­VICE TRUCK TYRES

The Om­ni­trac range of tyres are avail­able in 10 sizes – six S steer tyres and four D drive tyres

PMV Middle East - - TYRES -

Goodyear has launched a brand new mixed ser­vice truck tyre range, Om­ni­trac, of­fer­ing op­ti­mal dam­age re­sis­tance and longer ser­vice life than pre­vi­ous Goodyear mixed ser­vice tyres and full com­pli­ance to meet GSO and SASO re­quire­ments. The new tyres have been de­vel­oped for ve­hi­cles op­er­at­ing in mixed ser­vice ap­pli­ca­tions where they face the dif­fi­cult con­di­tions of un­paved sites but pre­dom­i­nantly op­er­ate on roads. These in­clude tip­pers, ce­ment mix­ers, con­crete pumps and low load­ers op­er­at­ing in con­struc­tion as well as trucks in waste, re­cy­cling, tim­ber and agri­cul­tural in­dus­tries.

The Om­ni­trac range of tyres are avail­able in 10 sizes (six S steer tyres and four D drive tyres), in­clud­ing one new to the mixed ser­vice in­dus­try. This 325/95R24 size cov­ers the grow­ing trend for the use of stan­dard trac­tors in GCC mar­kets.

The tyres fea­tures a new Goodyear tech­nol­ogy called Durashield which in­cludes an ex­clu­sive top belt for ex­tra re­sis­tance to cas­ing dam­age. Ac­cord­ing to Goodyear, Durashield com­bines ex­cel­lent ro­bust­ness with en­hanced per­for­mance and re­tread­abil­ity.

The Om­ni­trac S steer axle tyres are de­signed to cope with the spe­cific con­di­tions en­coun­tered on modern con­struc­tion sites and sim­i­lar ap­pli­ca­tions where a high pro­por­tion of high­way use is ex­pe­ri­enced in ad­di­tion to of­froad use on sites. The Durashield tech­nol­ogy en­hances on-road wear per­for­mance, re­sis­tance to tread dam­age, and re­tread­abil­ity. The Om­ni­trac S 24” is an all-po­si­tion tyre specif­i­cally for coun­tries in the Mid­dle East and Africa.

The Om­ni­trac D drive axle tyres fea­ture a tread with three rows of di­rec­tional siped blocks, which op­ti­mise per­for­mance both on and off road. The Durashield tech­nol­ogy en­hances cas­ing dura­bil­ity and re­sis­tance to tread dam­age with a high level of chip/chunk re­sis­tance un­der off road op­er­a­tion.

An ad­di­tional fea­ture of these tyres is the in­te­gra­tion of ra­dio fre­quency iden­ti­fi­ca­tion (RFID) al­low­ing sim­ple iden­ti­fi­ca­tion and con­nec­tiv­ity to tyre man­age­ment and track­ing sys­tems. For mixed-ser­vice ap­pli­ca­tions, Goodyear of­fers a full suite of data-based so­lu­tions called Goodyear Proac­tive So­lu­tions, fea­tur­ing ad­vanced telem­at­ics and patented pre­dic­tive an­a­lyt­ics tech­nol­ogy that can pro­vide com­mer­cial fleets with pre­cise, re­al­time mon­i­tor­ing of tyres.

Ben­jamin Wil­lot, di­rec­tor-mar­ket­ing, com­mer­cial tyres-europe, Goodyear, said: “To­day’s mixed ser­vice fleet op­er­a­tors are de­mand­ing tyres that of­fer both ver­sa­tile on-road ca­pa­bil­ity and greater re­sis­tance to the con­di­tions en­coun­tered both on- and of­froad. Our new Om­ni­trac tyres 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 con­fi­dent of the ro­bust­ness of these tyres against ac­ci­den­tal dam­age.”

Goodyear’s Om­ni­trac MST II 385/65R22.5 and 445/65R22.5 trailer tyres com­ple­ment the Om­ni­trac S and D tyres of­fer­ing high mileage and en­hanced grip for on- and off-road ap­pli­ca­tions. These tyres fea­ture a wide tread and of­fer even wear and high mileage po­ten­tial com­bined with ex­cel­lent dam­age re­sis­tance and high sta­bil­ity. The Om­ni­trac range and Tread­max mould cure re­tread ver­sions will be avail­able from early De­cem­ber 2018.
