The Goodyear Tire & Rubber Co. launched its Endurance trailer tire, unveiled during Goodyear’s 2017 Customer Conference in Orlando, Fla.
“Goodyear is proud and excited to introduce the Endurance, the only radial special trailer tire built in the United States,” said Ryan Patterson, president of Goodyear’s North American consumer tire business, in a press release.
The tire is capable of transporting the heaviest and most crucial cargo, featuring Goodyear Durawall Technology, which helps resist sidewall cuts and punctures.
Available in load ranges D and E to accommodate larger trailer load capacities, the entire Endurance trailer line carries the N speed rating allowing consumers to travel at highway speeds. The Endurance also contains a range of features, including:
- An optimized tread depth and decoupling groove, which help it remain cool while towing heavy loads.
- Rugged fabric-steel construction, which offers improved durability and carrying capacity while remaining compatible with tire pressure monitoring systems and typical tire inflation stations.
- A specialized inner liner, which minimizes air loss in trailer applications.
- A scuff guard, which helps protect sidewalls.
In addition to introducing the new Endurance, Goodyear has unveiled a new special trailer size: ST 255/85R16. The Endurance is the only tire on the market available in that size.
“The launch of the Goodyear Endurance is an exciting development for consumers who want a durable, domestically manufactured tire that they can trust to carry their important cargo,” said Patterson. “Goodyear is proud to meet this need with the new Endurance.”
