SANTA ANA, Calif.—Yokohama Tire Corp. has added a radial snow tire, the RSO2, to its portfolio of grader tires that's designed to deliver more traction and performance in winter conditions.
Available in size 14.00R24 for G-2 graders, the RS02 features a dedicated winter tread compound and "versatile" tread pattern designed for use on snow and ice, according to Tom Clauer, senior manager of commercial and OTR product planning.
Other features of the RS02 include:
- a non-directional tread design with hundreds of "biting edges" for enhanced traction on ice and snow;
- a large hexagonal bead bundle for added strength and reduced slippage;
- a high "turn-up construction" for lateral stability and added sidewall protection to combine for a long-lasting, incredibly durable tire.
- a wire overlay protects the heavy-duty belt package for puncture resistance.
