Premium tires and more: Goodyear to exhibit at steinexpo 2023
Goodyear will showcase its premium OTR tires as well as solutions for construction and industrial machinery at steinexpo 2023 from August 23rd to 26th in Germany. As a tire manufacturer, Goodyear offers a wide range of products and sizes. At its stand (B81) in the open-air area of the fair, the tire manufacturer will provide information on its tire portfolio for dump trucks and its classic tire range for wheel loaders as well as for heavy-duty trucks and tippers on primarily unpaved roads.
The company will show the following tires and solutions on site:
The POWERLOAD® tire series is designed to optimize the productivity, durability and cost-effective operation of compact wheel loaders and small grader machines for more efficient and sustainable operations. It is equipped with Smooth Guard Technology™ including an extra thick and smooth rubber layer of protection in the shoulder area and sidewall. It gives the tire greater durability. In addition, the new tire series has a reinforced sidewall construction giving increased stability and easier manoeuvrability. The tire's tread pattern is not directional, so it can be mounted on any wheel position. The Goodyear POWERLOAD® offers excellent off-road traction and directional stability.
The GP-3E is specially designed for wheel loaders, articulated dump trucks and graders. With its special Goodyear Type 6 rubber compound, it provides increased abrasion resistance and thus lowers operators’ tire costs. At the same time, the model impresses with a reduced overall weight compared to its predecessors. The special construction is proven to optimise tread wear, contributing to Goodyear's goal of maximising efficiency and sustainability without sacrificing tire performance. The GP-3E tread pattern achieves high levels of traction with additional biting edges, dual centreline lugs and an increased lug count. At the same time, the tread is designed to support a high level of flotation by distributing weight evenly. The advanced tread pattern, combined with the new carcass construction, also offers improved levels of operator comfort - a bonus during long shifts in challenging climates.
Omnitrac Heavy Duty
The Omnitrac Heavy Duty tire series has been especially developed for tippers and other heavy-duty trucks driving short distances on public roads but predominately operating in challenging unpaved working environments such as on construction sites and in mines and quarries. The Omnitrac Heavy Duty Series focuses on vehicles that work predominantly in heavy terrain, covering only short distances on paved roads. At the same time, it offers improved fuel efficiency and connectivity with tire management systems.
The TL-4A is an OTR tire for articulated dump trucks and scrapers. With this tire, the manufacturer meets the growing number of higher capacity vehicles. The tire's high tread depth provides excellent traction on muddy and soft surfaces. The TL-4A is available in two versions in size 33.25 R 29 with a belt made of high-strength steel for improved resistance to punctures.
TPMS Heavy Duty
Goodyear has many years of experience in the development of Tire Pressure Monitoring Systems (TPMS). At steinexpo, the company will present the enhanced TPMS Heavy Duty. The system communicates with drivers and fleet managers via two apps, Goodyear FleetHub and Goodyear DriverHub, which provide predictive tire data and helpful information for proactive and preventive maintenance of their fleets.
"We offer a large portfolio of high-performance tires for industrial and construction machinery. For us, steinexpo is the perfect opportunity to present a selection of our OTR tire segment and to enter into a valuable personal exchange directly with our customers," says Octavian Velcan, Managing Director OTR & Aviation EMEA at Goodyear.
