American-Manufactured Trailer Tyre Launched by Goodyear.
For years, hobbyists who tow boats, jet skis and snowmobiles to recreational destinations have asked for an American-manufactured trailer tyre to help carry their cargo with confidence. Millions of workers who haul equipment from job to job have echoed that desire.
The Goodyear Tyre & Rubber Company (GT) has answered that call with the new Endurance trailer tyre, which was unveiled this week during Goodyear’s 2017 Customer Conference in Orlando, Fla.
“Goodyear is proud and excited to introduce the Endurance, the only radial special trailer tyre built in the United States,” said Ryan Patterson, president of Goodyear’s North American consumer tyre business.
A tyre capable of transporting the heaviest and most crucial cargo, The Goodyear Endurance features Goodyear Durawall Technology, which helps resist sidewall cuts and punctures.
Available in Load Ranges D and E to accommodate larger trailer load capacities, the entyre Endurance trailer line carries the N speed rating allowing consumers to travel at highway speeds. The Endurance also contains a wide range of features, including:
An optimized tread depth and decoupling groove, which help it remain cool while towing heavy loads;
Rugged fabric-steel construction, which offers improved durability and carrying capacity while remaining compatible with tyre pressure monitoring systems and typical tyre inflation stations;
A specialized inner liner, which minimizes air loss in trailer applications; and
A scuff guard, which helps protect sidewalls.
In addition to introducing the new Endurance, Goodyear has unveiled a brand new, special trailer size: ST 255/85R16. The Endurance is the only tyre on the market available in that size.
“The launch of the Goodyear Endurance is an exciting development for consumers who want a durable, domestically manufactured tyre that they can trust to carry their important cargo,” said Patterson. “Goodyear is proud to meet this need with the new Endurance.”
