Yokohama Tire is introducing a new commercial offering—the 716U ultra wide-base (UWB)—designed to decrease weight and increase profitability for fleets.

Available in size 455/55R225, the 716U UWB carries a load rating M (ply-rating 22) to help boost payload by reducing unsprung weight without compromising total carrying capacity. That means a larger payload capacity for each trip.

“At Yokohama, we want to help commercial fleets reduce costs and improve productivity, in this case, those in waste, recycle and on/off-road severe service operations,” said Diana Colosimo, Brand Development Manager for Yokohama Tire. “The new 716U offers reliable all-season traction and durable construction while reducing overall vehicle weight and increasing payload.”

Other benefits of the 716U UWB include:

  • Powerful zig-zag groove to evacuate water away from the tread and enhance traction and wet-weather grip.
  • Funnel-shaped step grooves prevent stones and other debris from reaching the bottom of the grove and damaging the casing.
  • Extremely durable casing with an extra thick sidewall to resist damage from hitting potholes or curbs. It also increases retreadability.
  • Advanced compound that resists scrubbing, cutting and chipping, thus extending tread life.
  • Zero-degree belt that adds stability for a stable footprint and long, even wear.
