New industrial tire from Goodyear at Bauma
ERJ staff report (BC)
Birmingham, UK – Goodyear has launched a new radial tyre for industrial applications at the Bauma 2013 construction equipment exhibition in Munich, Germany.
The Goodyear EV-4C tubeless radial tire is designed mainly for straddle carriers in ports.
It features a CAD-designed tread configured to reduce lug-induced vibration, for “excellent” operator comfort and even tread wear. Nylon sidewall reinforcement reduces the risk of impact damage, according to Goodyear; this can cause expensive machine downtime.
Thanks to its tread design, says the company, the EV-4C delivers high levels of traction and braking performance in wet conditions.
The tire is available in sizes 16.00R25 and 480/95R25.
