ERJ Staff Report (LMH)
Akron, Ohio - Three Goodyear truck tire retread products have received the US Environmental Protection Agency's SmartWay verification, which recognises products with fuel saving properties.
EPA established low rolling resistance requirements from retreaded truck tires this year. Verified low rolling resistance retreaded tires must help reduce truck fuel consumption by at least 3 percent, according to the EPA.
Goodyear said the verification for its G316 AT Fuel Max, G572 LHD Fuel Max and G305 ATS Fuel Max showed the company's ongoing commitment to fuel efficiency.
â€œOur SmartWay-verified retread products will help fleets and owner-operators comply with California Air Resources Board regulations. This is important for any fleet or owner-operator that runs trucks in California,â€ commented Brian Buckham, brand manager, line haul and mixed service, Goodyear.
Currently, nine Goodyear new truck tires, as well as three Dunlop brand new truck tires, have received SmartWay verification, Goodyear said.
