Goodyear Endurance LHS Long-haul Steer Tires Top 200,000 Miles

| January 30, 2019

The Goodyear Endurance LHS long-haul steer tire, Goodyear’s best long-haul steer tire for miles to removal, is making some big tracks — having delivered remarkable mileage in fleet testing. 

“This tire, which was introduced last year, is providing extraordinary mileage in fleet evaluations – in some cases, 175,000 miles, 186,000 miles and in one fleet test, more than 210,000 miles,” said Mahesh Kavaturu, Goodyear’s director of technology, commercial tires. 

Kavaturu noted that 13 fleets have evaluated the tire, logging more than 13 million combined miles to date. And more than 200 fleets are currently running the Goodyear Endurance LHS. 

Like its complement tire, the Goodyear Endurance LHD long-haul drive tire, the Goodyear Endurance LHS is SmartWay-verified and is a key part of Goodyear’s Total Solution of trusted products, reliable services and fleet management tools, delivered by a nationwide network. 

Optimized to help provide long miles to removal, the Goodyear Endurance LHS features: 

    A new, wear-resistant tread compound; 
    A new dual-layer tread with uniform stiffness for slow, even wear; 
    New rigid casing construction for a consistent footprint; and 
    New casing compounds for low rolling resistance. 

“Long-haul fleets are the biggest segment of the North American trucking market,” said Kavaturu. “When it comes to tires, these companies measure every mile. And they want to get as many miles as possible out of their tire investment, without sacrificing other performance benefits like fuel efficiency, even wear and traction.” 

“We are confident the new Goodyear Endurance LHS, along with the Goodyear Endurance LHD, can help fleets achieve this balance and ultimately lower their operating costs,” he added. 

The Goodyear Endurance LHS is available in the following sizes: 295/75R22.5 (Load Ranges G and H); 11R22.5 (Load Ranges G and H); 285/75R24.5 (Load Ranges G and H); and 11R24.5 (Load Ranges G and H).
