The Goodyear Tire & Rubber Company has announced it has signed a one-year agreement to be the preferred tire supplier for Wabash National Corporation semi trailers. The deal includes using Goodyear Unisteel G316 LHT trailer tires on Wabash’s DuraPlate dry van trailer.

The G316 LHT tire uses a cool-running, triple-compound construction and features an all-steel four belt package, the company said, with two circumferential grooves and lateral grooves for all-season performance.

“We are extremely pleased to have been chosen by Wabash National to supply tires for its lines of trailers,” said Mark Totten, gm for Goodyear original-equipment commercial tires. “Together, Wabash National and Goodyear will provide fleet customers with fuel saving technologies that enhance the performance of their trailers.”
