Goodyear unveils G289 WHA line of waste-hauling tires

The Goodyear Tire & Rubber Co. says its G289 WHA line of waste-hauling tires feature:

  • A wider, deeper 24/32-inch tread that helps extend tread life in waste-haul applications;
  • A waste-haul compound that enhances tread life and scrub resistance for long tread life and retreadability;
  • A sidewall protector rib that helps resist sidewall scuffing in high-scrub waste-haul applications to enhance casing life;
  • A shoulder design that helps direct pressure away from the outer tread for uniform treadwear; and
  • DuraSeal Technology, a built-in tire sealant designed to seal tread punctures quickly — up to 1/4-inch in diameter in the repairable area of the tread; the gel-like rubber compound does not seal sidewall punctures — to help minimize downtime and provide added miles to removal.
  • Another feature of the tire is its all-season traction on wet, snowy or dry roads in stop/start waste-haul applications – derived from four wide circumferential grooves in the tread area, according to the company; and with the tire’s strong casing, which features four all-steel tensile belts, waste haulers have a strong foundation for retreading. Along with the G289 WHA, comes its retread mate, the G289 Retread.

    Goodyear says the G289 WHA — which joins the company’s G287 MSA and G288 MSA tires for front and rear loaders, plus transfer-dump operations — fits the vast majority of waste-haul vehicles through its 315/80R22.5 size, in load range L, at 10,200-pound capacity. While the tire is intended primarily for urban settings in front- and rear-loader applications, it also is versatile enough to be used in highway conditions, according to Goodyear.
