SANTA ANA, CA. – (Aug. 2, 2021) – Yokohama Tire’s new 124R™ all-position radial tire is designed to keep regional pick-up and delivery fleets moving all year long. The long-lasting, all-season 124R, which is now available in the U.S. and Canada in nine sizes, ranging from 17.5 to 22.5. inches, meets the industry’s required performance criteria for severe snow service and carries the three-peak mountain snowflake symbol on the sidewall.
“The 124R is built for lasting value,” said Tom Clauer, Yokohama’s senior manager of commercial product planning. “It delivers fleets a boost to their bottom line with longer original tread life and year-round performance. Plus, the 124R carries a six-year unlimited retread casing warranty on all 17.5-inch and 19.5-inch sizes and a seven-year warranty on all 22.5-inch sizes.”
Benefits of the 124R include:
-- Year-round traction: Deep sipes provide outstanding wet and snow braking, creating traction so powerful, the 124R carries the severe snow service designation. Additionally, four wavy circumferential grooves promote even wear and offer optimal traction in the wet and snow.
-- Extended tread life: An extra-wide tread promotes better dispersal of contact pressure with the road to deliver longer tread life. Also, rigid shoulder ribs step-down wear and enhance driving stability.
-- Rock solid: Rock shield platforms reduce stone and debris penetration for improved casing life, durability and retreadability.
