The Goodyear Tire & Rubber Co. is committed to helping construction companies, mining operations and quarries elevate their productivity while lowering their operating costs.To help end users achieve these objectives, Goodyear has added a key size, 20.5R25, to the AS-3A.
“This important addition completes the tire’s size line-up, which covers a full range of applications and conditions, including snow and ice-covered surfaces that require exceptional traction,” said Eric Matson, global field engineering manager, Goodyear.
The high net-to-gross 20.5R25 has a 40/32-in. tread depth (G3/L3) for enhanced traction. Other features of the AS-3A include:
- Specially placed blades for optimized ice and snow traction.
- Multiple groove edges for excellent traction across all surfaces.
- Flexible block elements for low stone retention.
- Wide-base construction for high flotation, enhanced stability and low ground pressure.
- A unique groove shape for optimized self-cleaning in all conditions.
Goodyear also plans to add a high-demand retread size, 23.5R25, for the AS-3A in 2018. The new retread size will complement the existing tread rubber selection for the AS-3A, which includes sizes 14.00R24/25, 16.00R24/25, 16.00×24, 17.5R25, 20.5R25 and 20.5×25.
The AS-3A range is available through Goodyear’s distribution network.
“Our worldwide support network helps make the Goodyear AS-3A available, when and where the tire is needed,” said Matson. “We also offer comprehensive after-sale services, such as on-site consultations, site audits, footprint evaluations, temperature studies and tire surveys, all designed to help optimize the performance of the AS-3A. Our powerful management tools, including our exclusive EMTrack online tire performance management system, are available to AS-3A customers, as well. Goodyear’s goal is to help end users enhance their productivity while lowering their operating costs. We are confident that the now-complete Goodyear AS-3A tire line will help accomplish that.”
