Durable tread design

Yokohama-RL45-LeftYokohama Tire Corp. offers two new off-the-road tires, the RL45 and RL51.

The tires feature new treads that are said to be more durable and longer lasting.

The RL45 is made for articulated dump trucks and scrapers. Available in size 26.5R25, it boasts an advanced tread composition to provide improved wear, low-heat generation, and cut resistance, while the zigzag-shaped groove provides better traction on rock and gravel surfaces.

The RL51 is designed for front-end loaders and graders. Available in size 23.5R25, a high-tech tread compound provides better wear and cut resistance.

Both tires feature a non-directional block pattern.
