By Luke Willetts - 15th March 2023
USA – Akron, Ohio-based Goodyear Tire & Rubber Company has unveiled its first electric vehicle truck tyre for regional fleets, the RangeMax RSD EV. Available in size 295/75R22.5, it is designed to withstand the added permitted gross weights of electric vehicles, while offering the same energy efficiency and low rolling resistance of its sister tyre for conventional ICE-powered vehicles. The tyre comes with key performance assurances such as the three-Peak Mountain Snowflake and Mud and Snow designations, Goodyear’s Treadlock Technology to promote even wear, premium casing construction for added durability and enhanced tread pattern design for high torque applications.
