Yokohama Tire Corp's RY567 regional-haul radial truck tire provides regional haulers with extended mileage, increased traction, improved durability, and enhanced retreadability. Two sizes (295/75R22.5 and 11R22.5) are available at commercial tire dealers nationwide.

The RY567 provides MSC (Maintenance Saving Concept) and STEM-2 (Strain Energy Minimization). MSC combines design elements to make up a system of performance characteristics that reduce tire maintenance costs and vehicle downtime. STEM-2 technology redirects normally destructive internal strain, reinforcing the casing to allow multiple retreads.

Key RY567 design features include its 22/32" tread, which delivers long tread life; stone rejection block, to reduce stone penetration damage; a stress wear control groove near the sidewall, to reduce shoulder step-down wear; and a staggered step-notch groove configuration for wet and dry traction.

Small sipes in the outer groove help prevent irregular wear, while an extra layer of rubber embedded high on the sidewall guards against curb damage and sidewall punctures from other hazards. The tire also uses a newly contoured bead design, allowing the tire to seat evenly against the rim.

The RY567 is supported by an extended warranty covering the product for five years through four retreads.
