Yokohama Tire Corp. B31 and RT41
December 12, 2008


Yokohama Tire Corp.’s B31 and RT41 have new technology built into them that translate into improved performance and longer tire life. Distinctive features of the RB31 and RT41 include a new tread compound, using an exclusive mixing process, that provides outstanding wear and cut resistance; high turn-up carcass construction and buttress side protection to guard against exterior damage; a unique nylon cord providing inner liner protection and a longer casing life; and a convex belt/concave carcass line that allows contact pressure to be disbursed more evenly. The RT41 was designed to be a single tire suited for two deep tread applications. We created the RT41-E4 specifically for articulated dumps, said Nash. Its non-directional block pattern provides excellent traction on soft, rocky surfaces, along with great abrasion resistance. For wheel loaders and dozers, the RT41-L4 tire was created with a three-tread design that excels on soft surfaces. In the regular tread-depth category, the RB31-E3 is suited for articulated trucks and scrapers and can perform on any surface. Yokohama also offers the RB31-L3 specifically for front-end loader and dozer applications.
