New bus tyres from Goodyear

Goodyear says it will introduce its UrbanMax range of bus and municipal vehicle tyres to the UK.

The firm says these offer high mileage and “superb braking” on wet roads and in winter weather.

They use the latest materials, tread patterns and carcasses to deliver lower fuel use and up to 40% more mileage than predecessor models. The firm says that the all-season capability also cuts the need for separate summer and winter tyres on city buses, fire engines, garbage trucks and other municipal vehicles and will meet the new EU noise laws. All are regroovable and retreadable.
