The Goodyear Tire & Rubber Company announced a new addition to its Armor Max lineup, the Goodyear Armor Max Extreme Service Drive (ESD) tire.
Armor Max ESD is Goodyear’s best commercial mixed service drive tire for durability and traction in severe applications, according to the company.
Armor Max ESD is now available in 11R22.5 H and 11R24.5 H sizes to meet the needs of the premium mixed-service segment. Specifically designed for heavy duty construction, logging, oil, and mining work vehicles, its tread compound helps resist cuts, chips and tears, and provides durability.
“Hardworking vocations like mining and construction need a tire that can withstand tough terrain with confidence,” said Jessica Julian, commercial product marketing manager, Goodyear North America. “The new Armor Max ESD delivers performance and durability that fleets need to help optimize productivity in these severe applications.”
Other key features and benefits include:
- A 32/32 tread design that helps minimize mud and snow buildup for enhanced off-road traction.
- Optimized tread geometry that improves resistance to stone holding.
- Enhanced under-tread that provides added protection against stone drilling and improves casing durability.
- A sidewall design that allows chains to be placed above tread blocks, while helping to minimize slippage for enhanced performance.
