Akron-based Goodyear Tire and Rubber Co. has added a new size, 20.5R25, to the AS-3A, its all-season tire off-the-road (OTR) tires.

“This important addition completes the tire’s size line up, which covers a full range of applications and conditions, including snow and ice-covered surfaces that require exceptional traction,” Eric Matson, global field engineering manager, Goodyear, says.

The 20.5R25 has a 40/32-inch tread depth (G3/L3) for enhanced traction. Other features of the Goodyear AS-3A include:

  • specially placed blades for ice and snow traction;
  • multiple groove edges for traction across all surfaces;
  • flexible block elements designed for low stone retention;
  • wide base construction manufactured for high flotation, enhanced stability and low ground pressure; and
  • unique groove shape for self-cleaning in all conditions.

Goodyear also plans to add a new retread size, 23.5R25, for the AS-3A in 2018. The size will complement the existing tread rubber selection for the AS-3A, which includes sizes 14.00R24/25, 16.00R24/25, 16.00x24, 17.5R25, 20.5R25 and 20.5x25. 

The entire Goodyear AS-3A range is available through Goodyear’s distribution network.

“Our worldwide support network helps make the Goodyear AS-3A available, when and where the tire is needed,” Matson says.

“We also offer comprehensive after-sale services, such as on-site consultations, site audits, footprint evaluations, temperature studies and tire surveys, all designed to help optimize the performance of the Goodyear AS-3A,” Matson says. “Our powerful management tools, including our exclusive EMTrack online tire performance management system, are available to AS-3A customers, as well.”

“Goodyear’s goal is to help end users enhance their productivity while lowering their operating costs,” Matson says. “We are confident that the now complete Goodyear AS-3A tire line will help accomplish that.”
