Yokohama’s BluEarth 709L fuel-efficient ultra-wide-base drive tire has an advanced compound engineered to resist heat buildup and a 24/32-inch tread depth for added low rolling resistance. A specialized directional tread pattern promotes added traction in wet or snowy conditions without sacrificing rolling resistance, while a Z-block design helps create multiple biting edges for more grip during acceleration.
Tie-bar connectors promote block rigidity to help reduce heel-toe wear, while seven circumferential grooves help evacuate water from beneath the tread to boost road contact. A zero-degree belt is designed to create a consistently stable footprint for long, even wear and extended service life, while funnel-shaped grooves helps prevent stones and other debris from reaching the groove’s bottom. The tire is available in size 445/50R22.5 and is verified by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s SmartWay program.
