Product Announcement: Goodyear’s Most Fuel-Efficient Tires Help Meet Emission Targets

Goodyear is launching its most fuel-efficient tire range to date: the company says its new full silica compound tires can save a 100-vehicle fleet more than $338,000 in fuel costs annually and help truck manufacturers meet future emission targets. The Fuelmax Performance tires are the first Goodyear truck tires to feature full silica tread compound technology, achieve EU tire label grade A for fuel efficiency, and meet full Three Peak Mountain Snow Flake (3PMSF) winter tire requirements, the company says.

As manufacturers face challenges in terms of improving environmental performance, the new tires will help OEMs and fleets achieve those objectives and reduce costs, says David Anckaert, VP of Goodyear Commercial Tires Europe.

Fuelmax Performance tires are developed for maximum fuel savings with low heat generation and low rolling resistance for dedicated long-haul applications. They offer A grade EU label fuel efficiency, B grade Wet Grip, one wave exterior noise and 3PMSF winter performance, and are Goodyear’s first truck tires to feature full silica tread compound technology. This is a key element for low fuel consumption and wet grip, the company says, adding that “the construction ensures extremely regular footprint pressure distribution for regular wear and high mileage under all load conditions encountered in long haul service.”

The new tires were created with the expectation that EU legislation will require heavy duty vehicle CO2 emission reductions of 15% by 2025 and 30% by 2030.

Goodyear has also recently launched a mobile phone app from Goodyear Proactive Solutions for fleet managers. The app provides access to up-to-the-minute relevant data for every tire on every vehicle and offers urgent warnings any time a potential issue is detected.

Aiman Abdrabou, global manager of energy and sustainability with Goodyear Tire and Rubber, spoke about Goodyear’s sustainability initiatives – particularly the company’s “zero loss thinking in energy management” – at the 2017 Environmental Leader Conference & Energy Manager Summit.
