Single and Ready to Mingle

The Goodyear G278 MSD super single tire is designed for tough and severe-duty vocational applications and features a crisscross tread design that offers improved off-road traction and helps pump water from the tread. The grooved angles have full-width interlocking groove protectors that help keep stones from imbedding in the tread. The tire is available in 385, 425 and 445/65R sizes.


Permanent Leak Repair

K-Seal HD is a ceramic and copper formula that mixes with all types of anti-freeze to make permanent repairs to cooling systems on all larger-capacity engines. K-Seal stops leaks in the engine’s block, head, radiator, heater matrix, freeze plugs and the head gasket by pouring the contents into the engine coolant. One 16-oz. bottle treats cooling systems of up to 50 quarts capacity.


High-Power Braking for Smaller Units

The High Power Density engine braking technology provides large displacement retarding power in small and medium displacement engines. It consists of two braking rocker arms and two collapsible bridges per cylinder, which enables a second braking event to occur during each engine cycle by deactivating the main intake and exhaust events via the collapsible bridges and actuating the two braking rockers.


The Drive to Greater Efficiency

The Toyo M657 on-highway drive-axle position tire is U.S. EPA SmartWay verified and ideal for long-haul highway applications. Developed using Toyo Tires’ e-balance technology, the M657 has a stiffer belt package and bead construction that improves the tire’s life, endurance, irregular wear resistance and better fuel consumption. The tire fits both single and twin drive-axle applications and is available in four sizes: 11R22.5, 295/75R22.5, 11R24.5 and 285/75R24.5.


Grease is the Word

UltraLube 5th Wheel Trailer Grease provides protection against friction and corrosion in extreme weather and heavy-duty operating conditions. The grease is packaged in a 2-oz. smash pack to help drivers and service technicians control the amount of grease applied to the fifth wheel.


Viscous Damper for Caterpillar Diesel Engines

The viscous damper for Caterpillar C10, C12 and C13 engines benefit medium- and heavy-duty truck owners by achieving 500,000 miles of protection against torsional vibration crankshaft damage. The damper is available in a raw steel finish coated with rust preventative suitable for paint application.
