The Goodyear Tire & Rubber Co. introduced three scraper tires for construction and mining/earthmover applications. “The launch of our new Goodyear RT-3A (E-3), RT-3A+ (E-3+) and RL-3J (E-3) tires completes our scraper tire line-up,” said Evan Perrow, marketing manager, Goodyear. “It also is another example of Goodyear’s ongoing commitment to helping mining and construction operations lower their costs.”
The Goodyear RT-3A (E-3) and Goodyear RT-3A+ (E-3+) are designed to offer enhanced traction in all underfoot conditions, according to Perrow. The tires feature cool-running, radial construction; an aggressive tread pattern; a unique, geometric lug pattern for long tread life, even pressure distribution and enhanced mobility; buttressed, self-cleaning lugs to help protect against sidewall cutting; and more.
The RT-3A (E-3) is available in size 33.25R29, while the RT-3A+ (E-3+) is available in size 40.5/75R39.
The Goodyear RL-3J (E-3) is for high-speed use on moderate-to-severe underfoot conditions. It features a zig-zag, centerline groove to offer superior lateral traction in high-torque applications; tapered, self-cleaning shoulder lugs for excellent forward traction; a high-tensile steel belt package for enhanced impact resistance; and more.
Along with the enlargement of its product portfolio, Goodyear is expanding its distribution to provide even easier access to its industry-leading tires and best-in-class services and support.
“We are investing in our network of dealers and distributors – including our Goodyear Commercial Tire & Service Centers – to help ensure that our customers receive the right products and services at the right time,” said Perrow. “Our dealers and distributors are a valuable source of expertise, and play a vital role in helping end users lower their operating costs.”
