Goodyear rolls out Workhorse tires

Two new models, designed for mixed-service fleets, help boost on- and off-road performance for vocational trucks.

The new Workhorse line of tires being rolled out by the Goodyear Tire & Rubber Company is being at mixed-service applications, primarily vocational duty-cycles, where trucks need solid on- and off-road performance.

“The Goodyear Workhorse line includes both the Workhorse MSA and Workhorse MSD tires,” noted Evan Perrow, Goodyear’s marketing manager Goodyear. “Both offer strong on- and off-road performance for vocational trucks [and] we believe they will help mixed-service fleets get the job done, while helping to lower their operating costs.”

Goodyear noted the new Workhorse MSA tire is designed more for over-the-road performance. It features:

  • A high-mileage tread compound and enhanced tread volume to help offer many miles to removal
  • Three sizes: 11R22.5 (Load Range H); 11R24.5 (Load Range H); and 315/80R22.5 (Load Range L – 10,000-lb. capacity)
  • A wider footprint to help enhance mileage, cornering and handling
  • Penetration protectors to help resist stone drilling for retreadability
  • A tread design that helps reduce road noise for a quiet ride

The Workhorse MSD, by contrast, is designed for both on- and off-road applications. It features:

  • Rugged casing construction for enhanced toughness and retreadability in heavy-duty, off-road applications
  • Two sizes: 11R22.5 and 11R24.5, both Load Range H
  • Deep 31/32-inch tread with a rugged lug configuration to help deliver traction on difficult terrain
  • An advanced tread compound to help resist cuts and chips for off-road performance
  • A deep undertread to help promote cool-running performance while on the road
  • A steel belt/casing package to help enhance retreadability
