Goodyear’s G572 LHD drive tire features the company’s proprietary Fuel Max Technology and is verified by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s SmartWay Transport Partnership. The G572 LHD replaces the G372A LHD, which features the same 30/32-inch tread depth but is designed for lower rolling resistance and improved dry and wet stopping distances, plus overall traction.

The G572 LHD also features Goodyear’s proprietary TredLock Technology, which interlocks microgrooves to help stabilize the tread for enhanced tread life while promoting even wear. Circumferential and lateral tread grooves help enhance all-season performance, while penetration protectors help impede stone drilling for longer casing life and multiple retreads. Four ultra-tensile steel belts help reinforce the tread and provide a solid foundation for retreading.

The G572 LHD comes in four sizes: 11R22.5 and 11R24.5, both in G and H load ratings; and 295/75R22.5 and 285/75R24.5, both in G load ratings.
