Goodyear unveils high load version of FuelMax T06 December 2016

Goodyear has announced a high load version of its FuelMax T range of trailer tyres with EU tyre label ‘A’-grading for fuel efficiency.

The new FuelMax T HL 385/65R22.5 is engineered for axle loads of up to 10 tonnes – this, says Goodyear, is to meet increasing demand as more European countries adopt higher vehicle weights.

Almost 80% of European countries, it reports, have now extended regulations and now permit beyond 40 tonnes on five-axle articulated vehicles – 32 countries have gone further, allowing more than 44 tonnes.

The new FuelMax T enables total weights in excess of 40 tonnes and follows Goodyear’s launch of the high load version of its KMax T trailer tyre, designed for higher mileage operation.

The FuelMax T 385/65R22.5 has a load/speed index of 164K/158L and carried the M+S designation for winter tyre standards.
