Goodyear is launching the OMNITRAC Heavy Duty truck tyre range for mixed service trucks operating under severe conditions; offering improved durability, efficiency, mileage and traction in all weather conditions.

The new tyre range is especially developed for tippers and other heavy-duty trucks driving short distances on public roads but predominately operating in challenging unpaved working environments, such as on construction sites and in mines and quarries. The new range comes with the Goodyear OMNITRAC guarantee, covering accidental impact damage that renders a registered tyre unrepairable and unusable, and it also includes 100% retread casing acceptance.

“Last year, we launched our new OMNITRAC S & D tyres, which are specifically developed for vehicles that operate in mixed service applications and spend the majority of their time on roads. The Goodyear OMNITRAC Heavy Duty range covers trucks predominately operating on sites with severe terrain, but which also drive on-road for short distances. Goodyear ORD is our established off-road range providing excellent traction in the most extreme conditions,” said Maciej Szymanski, Director Marketing Europe for Commercial Business Unit at Goodyear.

He continues: “We now offer a full spectrum of innovative products covering all applications from on-road to very challenging working environments. The end-to-end offer is complimented with customisable smart solutions and the support of the reputable Truck Force network – which is an integral part of Goodyear Total Mobility, our tailored value proposition for fleets”.

The new OMNITRAC Heavy Duty tyres are designed to cope with sharp stones, wet surfaces, muddy roads, steep slopes and pothole, as well as specific applications requiring high torque such as steer tyres on hydro-drive vehicles.

The new OMNITRAC Heavy Duty offers excellent traction in severe mixed service applications combined with enhanced fuel efficiency and connectivity. Featuring DuraShield technology, they provide a balanced performance with a focus on robustness for long tread life in mixed service applications under tough operating conditions. The latest technology includes an exclusive top belt for extra resistance to casing damage and corrosion, resulting in improved retreadability.

Compared to its predecessor the OMNITRAC MSS II and MSD II, the new tyres provide enhanced performance in the areas of stone holding resistance, chipping and chunking resistance, connectivity and durability, while rolling resistance and fuel efficiency are maintained or improved in line with new developing legislation. The 3PMSF (Three Peak Mountain Snowflake) marking means an improved level of winter performance and compliance with increasingly stringent winter tyre regulations.
