Yokohama Tire Launches New All-position 504C Radial Tire

USA-MADE H LOAD-RATED TIRE IS AVAILABLE IN TWO SIZES

Yokohama Tire rolled out a new all-position radial tire, the 504C. Yokohama engineered the 504C  with an undertread that handles the punishment of on- and off-highway applications. The 504C replaces Yokohama’s MY507 and is available now in sizes 11R22.5 (H) and 11R24.5 (H). The tire is manufactured at Yokohama’s plant in West Point, Mississippi.

“The 504C is the tire for jobs that go beyond where the pavement ends,” says Tom Clauer, Yokohama’s senior manager of commercial and OTR product planning. “With improved retreadability and longer overall casing life, it’s the perfect performer for fleet owners.”

BENEFITS OF THE 504C

  • Long tread life: A wide tread provides a stable footprint for extended tread life, improved traction, wet braking, and retreadability.
  • Excellent wet traction: Three circumferential grooves with a deep center groove allow for better water evacuation throughout the original tread life.
  • Outstanding retreadability: Yokohama backs its tire by a six-year, three-retread casing warranty because its wide casing makes it so retreadable.
  • Tough, durable construction: This comes from several engineering elements, such as the funnel-shaped step grooves that prevent stone drilling from damaging the casing, and the high-strength belt construction that protects against rust and stone penetration while minimizing heat generation. Also, an advanced compound supplies cut and chip resistance without sacrificing wear performance.
