Yokohama Tire’s all-new 714R™ will deliver year-round. Engineered for urban pick-up/delivery applications, the open shoulder drive tire is available in sizes 225/70R19.5 (14) and 245/70R19.5 (16). The 714R first debuted at the TMC show in February and is now available.
“The 714R was engineered to deliver all-weather traction, significantly longer wear, and outstanding fuel efficiency,” says Tom Clauer, Yokohama’s senior manager of commercial and OTR product planning. “Each are important characteristics our regional pickup and delivery customers need.”
BENEFITS OF THE 714R
- Outstanding traction: Open shoulder grooves provide excellent traction in wet or snow conditions.
- Long tread life: A newly designed wide tread pattern controls the ground contact pressure to deliver long, original tread life. Additionally, tie-bar connectors control block movement to minimize heel/toe wear.
- Durable construction: Funnel-shaped step grooves prevent stones and other debris from reaching the bottom of the groove where casing damage can occur.
- Fuel-efficient operation: Yokohama’s advanced compound provides significantly lower rolling resistance for improved fuel efficiency.
