Goodyear's greener tires pass EPA certification for SmartWay trucking

Filed under: ,

Every little bit helps, right? Goodyear announced last week that its commercial tires with Fuel Max Technology have gained EPA certification and can now be used on SmartWay-eligible trucks. The tires are said to give improved fuel economy of up to four percent. If they're part of a SmartWay-qualified system, a truck can save up to 4,000 gallons of fuel a year. Not bad for a set of tires (and other components).

If you're a trucker and are looking for specifics, we're here for you. The Goodyear tires that have this Fuel Max Technology are:
  • Unisteel G395 LHS steer tire
  • Unisteel G305 LHD drive tire
  • Unisteel G316 LHT trail tire in standard (11R22.5) and low-profile (295/75R22.5 and 285/75R24.5) sizes
