New Goodyear tire designed for severe-service applications

The new Goodyear G741 MSD truck tire is used for logging, oil field, mining and other severe-service applications commonly found throughout Canadian industry.

“These are applications that require a tire that’s big, rough and tough but also versatile and easily adaptable to a wide range of conditions and environments,” said Dwight McGill, general manager, Commercial Tire Systems, Goodyear Canada. “The G741 MSD boasts a number of features designed to help provide optimal performance across difficult terrain.” They include:
•    Deep 33/32-inch tread with a wide footprint to help provide traction and high mileage.
•    An aggressive, self-cleaning tread design to enhance grip and help resist mud build-up.
•    A cut- and chip-resistant tread compound that helps provide long-lasting performance.
•    Tread block sipes to enhance traction in wet, snow and icy conditions, while helping to maintain dry traction.

The tire also boasts an innovative sidewall design that allows chains to be placed above the tread blocks for enhanced traction and grip.

“Our customers throughout Canada have asked for a robust, multi-functional tire to tackle the often-stark landscapes associated with oil field, mining, logging and other operations,” added McGill.

“We believe the new G741 MSD will quickly become the ‘tire of choice’ for companies that operate in these challenging vocations.”
