Updated Dec 6, 2019

HyperFocal: 0HyperFocal: 0Yokohama Tire announced that its latest regional-haul trailer tire, the SmartWay-verified 114R Ultra Wide-Base (UWB), is available now in size 445/50R22.5, with an additional size – 455/50/22.5 – offered in the first quarter of 2020. The 114R UWB, the successor to the company’s RY407, is designed for high-scrub operations with added cut and chip resistance and extended tread life and is optimized for fuel efficiency.

Other benefits of the 114R, according to the company, include long-lasting performance due to a 16/32-inch-deep groove depth that provides long tread life, as well as a zero-degree belt – a cornerstone to its durable, retreadable casing – that creates a consistently stable footprint. Yokohama’s advanced compound is designed to offer cut and chip resistance without sacrificing rolling resistance or wear performance, while funnel-shaped step grooves help prevent stones and other debris from reaching the bottom of the grooves.
