European trailer manufacturer Schmitz Cargobull has approved Goodyear’s Ultra Grip Max T winter trailer tyre as original equipment fitment on its trailers for customers operating in severe winter conditions. Goodyear’s recently-introduced truck winter tyres will be available in sizes 385/65R22.5 and 385/55R22.5 for trailers destined for regions such as the Alps, the Nordic countries and Russia.
DAF has become the first truck manufacturer to approve Goodyear’s Ultra Grip Max winter truck tyres as factory-fit options. Operators ordering new DAF trucks built from week 41 onwards can now specify Goodyear Ultra Grip Max S steer tyres and Ultra Grip Max D drive tyres in sizes 315/70R22.5 and 315/80R22.5.
The Goodyear Ultra Grip Max winter truck tyre range will soon be completed with the introduction of the Ultra Grip Max T trailer tyre. The 3PMSF and M+S approved tyres will be available in sizes 385/55R22.5 and 385/65R22.5 from September 2015. The first two tyres in the Ultra Grip Max range, the S steer and D drive fitments, were recently released in sizes 315/70R22.5 and 315/80R22.5.
