The Goodyear Tire & Rubber Co. announced a new addition to its Armor Max lineup, the Goodyear Armor Max Extreme Service Drive tire.

The Akron, Ohio-based company noted it was its best commercial mixed service drive tire for durability and traction in severe applications.



Armor Max ESD is now available in 11R22.5 H and 11R24.5 H sizes to meet the demanding needs of the premium mixed-service segment. Specifically designed for heavy-duty construction, logging, oil and mining work vehicles, its tread compound helps resist cuts, chips and tears and provides durability, according to the company.

Other key features and benefits the company reported include:

  • A deep 32/32 tread design that helps minimize mud and snow buildup for enhanced off-road traction.
  • Optimized tread geometry that improves resistance to stone holding.
  • Enhanced under-tread that provides added protection against stone drilling and improves casing durability.
  • • An innovative sidewall design that allows chains to be placed above tread blocks, while helping to minimize slippage for enhanced performance. — Transport Topic
