AKRON—The Environmental Protection Agency has verified three Goodyear truck retreads—G316 AT Fuel Max, G572 LHD Fuel Max and G305 ATS Fuel Max—as SmartWay fuel-saving components.
The retreads join nine Goodyear- and three Dunlop-brand new truck tires as SmartWay verified, Goodyear said.
The EPA established low rolling-resistance requirements for retreaded truck tires this year. Verified low rolling-resistance retreaded tires must help reduce truck fuel consumption by at least 3 percent, according to the EPA.
The G316 AT Fuel Max, G572 LHD Fuel Max and G305 ATS Fuel Max are part of Goodyear's line of fuel-efficient new truck tires and retreads, many of which feature the company's Fuel Max Technology.
The G316 AT Fuel Max is available as a precure retread in 8-, 8.5-, 8.75- and 9-inch tread widths. It also is available as a Goodyear UniCircle product in sizes 295/75R22.5, 11R22.5 and 285/75R24.5 in both 8.5- and 9-inch tread widths.
The G572 LHD Fuel Max is available as a precure product in 8.5-, 8.875-, and 9.25-inch tread widths. UniCircle fitments will be available soon, as well, Goodyear said.
The G305 ATS Fuel Max is available as a precure retread in 8.5-, 8.75- and 9-inch tread widths, with UniCircle fitments also available soon.
