Yokohama Truck Tyre a ‘Nifty Fifty’ Recipient
The Nifty Fifty awards are held each year by US based magazine Heavy Duty Trucking to showcase the editors’ favourite new products from the previous twelve months. Named as one of these fifty favourites in the 2008 awards has been Yokohama’s 103ZR commercial tyre.
The ‘Nifty Fifty’ are selected from hundreds of new products reviewed by the magazine during the year and evaluated for their utility to truck operators in terms of innovation, serviceability and performance. The Yokohama tyre was chosen, say the editors, on the merits of its longevity and fuel-efficiency. The manufacturer also made it onto the list in 2007, with its 703ZL tyre.
“Back-to-back Nifty Fifty awards from Heavy Duty Trucking is truly an honour,” said Yokohama director of commercial sales John Cooney. “The 103ZR is an outstanding tyre and we are very proud to be receiving recognition from the editors once again.”
