Goodyear’s New Truck Tyre Generation Coming Soon


Goodyear’s New Truck Tyre Generation Coming Soon

This summer will see the launch of two new tyre ranges for fleets striving for efficiency

Birmingham,  July 2013 – Goodyear announces today the roll-out of a new generation  of  truck  tyres.  Two completely new truck tyre ranges will be launched  on the European market in September: KMAX and FUELMAX, comprising steer, drive and trailer tyres.

Their  names  are  suitably  associated  with  their  capabilities: KMAX is Goodyear’s  new  ‘kilometre  king’ built for optimised mileage, and FUELMAX has  been  designed  for  maximum  fuel efficiency.  The new tyres take the emphasis  off  the  type of operation, i.e. long haul or regional haul, and put  it  on  the economic priority, be it mileage or fuel efficiency.  KMAX and  FUELMAX  are  about  cost  optimization  and  contribution to business success for the operators using these tyres.

The new ranges will make fleets’ tyre choice easier.  Operators will now be able  to  choose  tyres according to their business type and need, allowing them to put the main priority on mileage or on fuel efficiency.

Without  compromising  overall  tyre  performance,  the  new Goodyear tyres provide the operational flexibility to perform well in long haul as well as regional haul – all year round.

Goodyear  KMAX  and  FUELMAX  tyres are currently undergoing rigorous field trials,  with  selected  European  truck  fleets  taking  part in extensive testing.   The  results  of  these  tests together with more details on the tyres’ attributes will be shared shortly.
