Goodyear has two new tires set to be available by summer 2014. 

The mixed-service tires — G731 MSA and G751 MSA — are available for construction, dump, cement mixers and other mixed-service fleets that need help on challenging surfaces. 

The tires will use Goodyear’s DuraSeal Technology, a gel-like rubber compound built that instantly seals nail-hole punctures of up to ¼-inch in diameter in the repairable area of a tire’s tread. 

“Goodyear DuraSeal Technology helps keep trucks up and running, which helps prevent expensive downtime, lowering fleets’ overall operating costs,” said Brian Buckham, marketing manager, Goodyear Commercial Tire Systems. “Goodyear is the only tire company that offers this unique, money-saving technology.” 

Both the G731 MSA and G751 MSA also contain other features to help fleets lower their operating costs. The G731 MSA, which is designed for 20% on-road and 80% off-road service applications, features: 

  • More wearable rubber volume that offers up to 5% more miles to removal than its predecessor, the Goodyear G288 MSA;
  • Special tread compound for enhanced resistance to cuts, chips and tears;
  • Lower rolling resistance construction and greenhouse gas emission-compliancy for enhanced fuel efficiency;
  • A wider footprint for extra traction and stability;
  • A sturdy, tough casing for retreading to improve a fleet’s tire return on investment, and more.

The tire will be offered in the following sizes: 11R22.5 (with DuraSeal Technology); 12R22.5; 11R22.5; 11R24.5; 275/70R22.5; and 255/70R22.5.

The G751 MSA, which is designed for 80 per cent on-road and 20 per cent off-road service applications, features:

  • A high-scrub tread compound for cut, chip and tear resistance and more wearable rubber. “It also provides up to 50% more miles to removal than its predecessor, the Goodyear G287 MSA,” noted Buckham;
  • A wider footprint to help improve stability and traction;
  • Lower rolling resistance construction and greenhouse gas emission-compliancy for enhanced fuel efficiency;
  • A sturdy, tough casing for retreading to improve a fleet’s tire return on investment, and more.

The G751 MSA will be available in the following sizes: 11R22.5 (with DuraSeal Technology); 315/80R22.5 (with DuraSeal Technology); 12R22.5; 12R24.5; 11R22.5; 11R24.5; and 315/80R22.5.

“These premium tires are big on tread life, toughness and fuel economy, and Goodyear’s exclusive, self-sealing DuraSeal Technology will help keep them up and running,” said Buckham.

“We’re confident that the G731 MSA and G751 MSA will become the tires of choice for mixed-service fleet managers who want to lower their overall operating costs.”
