Goodyear’s Fuel Max tires part of Peterbilt Model 579 Epiq truck package

March 25, 2015

LOUISVILLE. Peterbilt Motors has two Model 579 Epiq truck models on display this week, both of which feature Goodyear Fuel Max tires.

The Epiq package can improve fuel economy by up to 14% through aerodynamic performance, an optimized drivetrain with the Paccar MX-13 engine, and fuel-saving technologies such as low rolling resistance tires, according to Peterbilt. Those tires include Goodyear’s Fuel Max LHD G505D and Fuel Max LHS.

“The super-fuel efficiency of these tires makes them a natural fit for display on the Model 579 EPIQ, which is the most fuel-efficient vehicle in Peterbilt’s Model 579 line,” said Gary Medalis, director of marketing, Goodyear Commercial Tire Systems.

According to Goodyear, the combination of the Goodyear Fuel Max LHD G505D and the Goodyear Fuel Max LHS saves, on average:

  • $1,300 worth of fuel, per truck, per year, compared to the combination of the Michelin X Line Energy D and Michelin XZA3+ EVERTREAD
  • $560 worth of fuel, per truck, per year, compared to the combination of the Bridgestone M710 Ecopia and Bridgestone R283 Ecopia
  • $560 worth of fuel, per truck, per year, compared to the combination of the Continental EcoPlus HD3 and the Continental HSL2 Eco Plus

Both the Goodyear Fuel Max LHD G505D and the Goodyear Fuel Max LHS are SmartWay-verified.
