New Fuel Max LHD from Goodyear

Fuel Max Lhd2 Side 2020 12 07 13 27The Goodyear Tire & Rubber Company will launch the new Fuel Max LHD 2 early next year.

Advanced casing compounds help make the Fuel Max LHD 2 Goodyear’s best long-haul tire for fuel efficiency and an excellent solution for fleets looking to lower their cost per mile, said Devin Dickerhoof, product marketing manager.

This new drive tire is designed with a fuel-focused tread compound combination that offers low rolling resistance that meets Phase 2 Greenhouse Gas Emissions and Fuel Efficiency Standards and is SmartWay verified.

The Fuel Max LHD 2 also features Goodyear’s signature TredLock technology, which includes double-corrugated blades that help ensure the tire wears evenly and maintains traction over time, earning it a Three-Peak Mountain Snowflake designation. Finally, its premium enhanced casing construction allows for maximum retreadability.

The Fuel Max LHD 2 is expected to be available in early 2021 in 295/75R22.5 (Load Range G) with the 11R22.5 (Load Range G) size releasing thereafter.
