Goodyear has announced the availability of two new regional tires that offer deeper tread depth, enhanced tread designs, and compounds to maximize tire life in urban and regional driving conditions. The G661 HSA and G662 RSA with Fuel Max Technology tires address the needs of applications from city delivery to beverage to emergency vehicles and buses — plus longer regional runs.

The G661 HSA steer and all-position tire was built with a high scrub-resistant tread, using multi-compound construction that helps to extend tread life when used in local applications that require frequent turning, backing, and braking.

Goodyear's G662 RSA with Fuel Max Technology is intended for regional and local haul applications as a steer and all-position tire. It has a pressure distribution groove to spread weight on the tread for enhanced uniform wear. The tire has a 22/32-inch tread depth, 2/32 inches deeper than previous Goodyear regional tires. TredLock Technology, featuring interlocking microgrooves, helps stiffen and stabilize the tread for long tread life.

The G661 HSA and G662 RSA with Fuel Max are available now in an 11R22.5 size, with the 295/75R22.5 size coming in June 2009. The G661 HSA will also have the 11R24.5 size available in June 2009.
