Yokohama Tire has launched the TY577 MC2, a new, fuel-efficient long-haul drive tire. The SmartWay-verified tire comes in sizes 295/75R22.5, 11R22.5, 285/75R24.5 and 11R24.5, and is also offered in 16-ply construction.
“The TY577 MC2 delivers it all: exceptional traction, long even wear, superior durability, low rolling resistance and incredible fuel efficiency,” said Tom Clauer, Yokohama Tire’s manager of commercial and OTR product planning. “It’s definitely a long-lasting money-saver.”
Clauer said the TY577 MC2 combines an ultra-deep tread pattern with Yokohama’s MC2 technology, which minimizes the effects of heat on the casing and tread, providing extremely low rolling resistance to reduce fleets’ cost-per-mile.
The 30 / 32-inch-deep groove depth delivers a firm and stable road grip. In addition, the stress wear control groove redistributes more load to the outside rib, greatly reducing the chance of shoulder step-down wear.
