UPGRADED LINE-HAUL ALL-POSITION RADIAL
The Yokohama RY617, a line-haul all-position radial, is an upgrade of the RY083A. In addition to a five-rib tread design and casing configuration, it has thousands of additional sipes for water evacuation, wet traction and uniform wear. A wavy groove wall design strengthens rib stiffness and combats uneven wear while a stress wear control groove reduces contact pressure at the tread edge, providing increased resistance to shoulder step-down wear.
