News from Goodyear: MAN, one of the leading truck manufacturers, now line-fits Goodyear’s latest high mileage and fuel-efficient truck tyres. Goodyear KMAX and FUELMAX tyres are available as original equipment on the German manufacturer’s vehicles.

The tyres being fitted by MAN as original equipment are Goodyear KMAX, the high mileage line, in sizes 295/80R22.5, 315/70R22.5 and 315/80R22.5, and the low rolling resistance FUELMAX series in size 315/80R22.5. The tyres are optional available on MAN TGX and TGS models.  By choosing these tyres, MAN customers have the ability to further minimise their operating costs.

“MAN has a first class reputation for its trucks and their low operating costs. The fact that the company has chosen our new FUELMAX and KMAX both endorses the economic performance of our tyres and will benefit the customers who purchase those trucks,” said Marc Preedy, Goodyear’s UK Commercial Director.

KMAX is a dedicated mileage line, offering maximised mileage potential and all year round traction without compromise on other key performance areas.  The range comprises the KMAX S steer tyre, KMAX D drive tyre and KMAX T trailer tyre. The KMAX D drive tyres have year-round capability thanks to complying with winter tyre requirements and carrying not only the M+S markings but also the Three Peak Mountain Snowflake (3PMSF) symbol. This indicates that they meet the severe snow (or winter) requirements, essential in some areas to be able to operate during severe weather.

FUELMAX is the fuel-efficient line focusing on reduced rolling resistance. The FUELMAX range comprises the FUELMAX S steer tyre, FUELMAX D drive tyre and FUELMAX T trailer tyre.  Low rolling resistance is the greatest attribute of these tyres with no compromise on mileage, wet braking or other key areas of performance.  The FUELMAX D drive tyre also meets both M+S and 3PMSF requirements, making this is a true all season tyre.
