Yokohama’s TY577 MC2 fuel-efficient long-haul drive tire combines an ultra-deep tread pattern with the company’s MC2 technology that minimizes the effects of heat on the casing and tread, facilitating low rolling resistance. A 30/32-inch deep groove depth is engineered to deliver a firm and stable road grip while enhancing run-out mileage, while a closed shoulder rib leads to more rubber-to-road contact for longer and more even wear. A stress wear control groove is designed to redistribute more load to the outside rib, helping to reduce the chance of shoulder step-down wear. The company’s Stem-2 technology redirects casing flex for added durability and retreadability, while a funnel-shaped groove helps reduce stone retention and increase block rigidity for added traction and wear rate. The tire comes in sizes 295/75R22.5, 11R22.5, 285/75R24.5 and 11R24.5 and also is offered in 16-ply construction.
