Four more Yokohama Tire Corporation commercial truck tires have been added to the US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) SmartWay list of verified technologies for tires. This brings the number to seven of Yokohama products that are recognized as SmartWay “low rolling resistance tires.”
SmartWay Transport, a collaboration between the EPA and the freight sector, is designed to improve energy efficiency and energy scrutiny, and reduce greenhouse gas and air pollutant emissions.
The Yokohama commercial tires receiving SmartWay status are the 101ZL and 103ZR steer tires, RY587 trailer tires, and TY517MC2 drive tires.
The 101ZL and 103ZR steer tires are both part of Yokohama's Zenvironment line, which consists of ultra high-tech truck tires that last longer and are more fuel-efficient. The 103ZR, at 23/32, is the deepest SmartWay-verified tire. The RY587, which offers premium performance for long-haul trailer applications, delivers a combination of long, even original tread mileage, lower fuel consumption, and durability. The TY517MC2 delivers outstanding traction, long even wear, and superior durability while also providing excellent low rolling resistance.
