Double Coin and CMA announced that Double Coin’s RT600 and RR202 tires have met the requirements for the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s (EPA) SmartWay Technology Program.
The SmartWay program verifies the performance of vehicles, technologies and equipment that have the potential to reduce greenhouse gases and other air pollutants from freight transport. EPA has verified that both of Double Coin’s RT600 and RR202 meet the low rolling resistance tire performance criteria, Double Coin said.
The low profile, all-position RT600 features a 5-rib design for precise handling, lateral stability and superior traction. The ultra-premium highway service RR202 tire features standard and low profile sizes that fit a multitude of applications including long distance busses and trucks.
“Double Coin is continually committed to engineering products that help reduce emissions and improve fuel economy,” said Aaron C. Murphy, vice president of CMA. “The SmartWay Technology program is a positive step in the right direction for our future, and we are proud that Double Coin products are on the list among verified technologies that improve the environment.”
