Luxembourg − DAF is the first truck manufacturer to offer Goodyear KMAX and FUELMAX tires as standard on its vehicles. The new tires will be supplied on the truck maker's CF and LF models, as well as its flagship XF range as of this month, reported Laura Cork for Transport Engineer.
The Goodyear KMAX and FUELMAX ranges were launched in September. KMAX has been developed for high-mileage performance, while retaining fuel efficiency and traction; the FUELMAX range is for the operator who wants optimised fuel efficiency, combined with good mileage.
The XF was DAF's first Euro 6 model and Marathon+ tires were previously offered on this vehicle. The DAF CF and LF Euro 6 ranges are offered in a range of versions and can now be specified with the Goodyear tire best suited to each application.
The tires will be supplied from Goodyear's Luxembourg facility, ready mounted and supplied to the DAF production line. The facility mounts 8,000 tires per day for manufacturers across Europe.
