Yokohama Tire’s new 114R is designed for fleets and operators who are looking to maximize tire life in regional haul and spread-axle operations.

The SmartWay-verified tire will be available on March 1 in the U.S. and shortly after in Canada comes in six sizes: 11R22.5, 295/75R22.5, 285/75R24.5, 11R24.5, 255/70R22.5 and 275/70R22.5. Yokohama will be displaying the 114R at TMC in booth #827.

“With its high-scrub tread compound and rounded shoulder ribs, the all-new 114R is definitely built to last,” said Tom Clauer, Yokohama’s Senior Manager of Commercial Product Planning.

Benefits of the 114R include:

  • Longer wear is achieved by round shoulder ribs which are specifically designed to resist curb damage and help reduce wear – especially in spread axle applications. Plus, the high-scrub compound is formulated to resist tread cutting and chipping without producing a negative impact on fuel efficiency.
  • Increased mileage is attained via the optimized tread depth that delivers maximum fuel efficiency and long-lasting service. Additionally, the sturdy rib design provides flawless tracking and improved fuel efficiency while minimizing tread wear.
  • Enhanced durability comes from the funnel-shaped step grooves which
    prevent stones and other debris from reaching the bottom of the grooves where casing damage can occur.
