With its showcase of tires and tire management tools at ConExpo this year, Goodyear promoted its ability to help you with productivity and lower tire costs.

The Goodyear TL-4A tire has an optimized tread pattern that keeps equipment tracking steady in severe conditions. For articulated trucks the GP-4D tire sports a non-directional tread design and centerline riding lugs for long wear and a smoother ride.

The company’s Armor Max Pro Grade MSD is aimed at construction trucks with a rugged tread design for on- and off-road traction. The Armor Max tire also offers Goodyear’s DuraSeal technology, which helps seal nail-hole punctures up to ¼-inch in diameter.

Goodyear is also talking up its on-site support, site audits and tire surveys to help contractors and fleet managers efficiently manage this significant operating cost.

The company’s EMTrack monitoring system gives you custom reports based on tread depth, tire inflation and other measurements. And Tire Trac, an online commercial truck tire management tool, helps construction operations monitor commercial truck tire installations, maintenance and performance.
