Rich Cottrell, senior director of Commercial Marketing at Goodyear North America, highlighted the company's commitment to evolving fleet needs, stating, "As the unique range, durability, and versatility needs of regional pickup and delivery fleets evolve, we're constantly listening to our fleet partners to design superior tyres for every application." Cottrell emphasized the importance of low rolling resistance combined with durable features like premium casings and long-lasting tread compounds in increasing vehicle uptime and protecting fleet investments.

The RangeMax RSA ULT is available in sizes 225/70R19.5 and 245/70R19.5, boasting a 10% improvement in rolling resistance compared to its predecessor, the Goodyear Fuel Max RSA ULT. It integrates Intellimax Technology to reinforce tread stiffness for extended wear, while its Sawtooth Shoulder Groove Design and Advanced Tread Compounds ensure aggressive traction, meeting Mud + Snow and Three-Peak Mountain Snowflake (3PMSF) traction ratings.

The Goodyear RangeMax™ RSA® ULT and RangeMax™ RTD™ ULT are the latest tires to join Goodyear’s growing portfolio of “Electric Drive Ready” commercial trucking tires, which also includes the RangeMax™ RSD® EV and the Endurance RSA ULT.

Likewise, the RangeMax RTD ULT, available in the same sizes, leverages a bio-based soybean oil tread compound to reduce reliance on petroleum. Its design promotes a firm grip on the road with a deep open-shoulder tread for reliable traction and longevity. This model also meets the 3PMSF traction rating, providing enhanced traction and acceleration under various weather conditions.

These groundbreaking tyres are part of Goodyear's Total Mobility solution, offering trusted products, a premier service network, and comprehensive tyre management solutions. For further information on Goodyear's innovative commercial tyre offerings, visit
