“The deep-tread 712L offers advanced wear resistance, top-tier fuel efficiency and traction, and tough, durable construction,” Tom Clauer, Yokohama’s senior manager of commercial and OTR product planning, said in a news release.

Clauer added that the 114R UWB is the successor to the RY407 UWB and will be available later in the year in size 445/50R22.5.
