Goodyear’s recently-launched KMAX and FUELMAX tyres are to be available on its award-winning Stralis range of trucks. The tyres that are on show at this year’s CV Show will be factory-fitted to 11 different types and sizes of Goodyear’s high mileage and fuel efficient tyres.
"We are delighted that Iveco has selected Goodyear KMAX and FUELMAX tyres, which will be available on its Stralis range," said Marc Preedy, Commercial Director Goodyear Dunlop UK. "At the launch of the new tyres, Iveco worked with us and demonstrated the economic benefits of its truck range fitted with KMAX and FUELMAX tyres. The results were impressive and underline the advantages of using tyres with excellent economic performance."
"We are very proud of the economic performance of the Iveco Stralis range. The fitment of Goodyear’s latest Goodyear KMAX and FUELMAX tyres will further enhance that performance and help our customers reduce their operating costs even more," said Giuliano Giovannini, Head of Iveco Product Marketing.
Available in tractor unit or chassis-cab configuration, the Stralis range comprises the Hi-Street day cab version, Hi-Road sleeper cab variant and the top-of-the-range maximum-width sleeper cab Hi-Way. The Iveco Stralis Hi-Way was voted International Truck of the Year 2013 by 25 leading European commercial vehicle journalists.
High mileage performance is the main benefit the Goodyear KMAX range offers, while not compromising on other important criteria. The Goodyear FUELMAX range provides optimised fuel efficiency combined with good mileage. Both ranges will be on show at this year’s CV Show where Goodyear staff will be present to discuss how these tyres could help lower the total operating cost of a business.
