Kenworth has introduced a wide selection of all-position Yokohama tires for new Kenworth heavy and medium duty conventional trucks, the company announced.
Kenworth customers can now specify Yokohama’s 101ZL, 703ZL, 709ZL, MY507, RY023, RY617, and TY517 tires when ordering their new Kenworth trucks. The tires are available in a variety of common sizes for truck use in on-highway and off-highway applications. All Yokohama over-the-road tires are verified low rolling resistance tires by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency SmartWay program.
“Tires with this designation can help reduce fuel use and provide cost savings to truck fleets and operators when used as instructed and kept properly inflated,” Kenworth said. “Yokohama tires are designed to provide a positive benefit to the bottom line of fleets and truck operators by delivering superior performance and fuel efficiency.”
“Truck tires are an integral part of any trucking operation, and Kenworth’s addition of Yokohama tires offers another fuel-efficient, cost-effective option for customers who purchase quality Kenworth heavy and medium duty trucks,” said Kurt Swihart, Kenworth marketing director.
