Goodyear debuts commercial EV tire for regional fleets

Goodyear said the RangeMax RSD EV is equipped to handle the higher load capacities of EVs.

The Goodyear Tire & Rubber Company has introduced its RangeMax RSD EV tire, the company’s first EV-focused tire compatible with EV and gas- or diesel-powered regional work vehicles.

Goodyear said the RangeMax RSD EV is equipped to handle the higher load capacities of EVs and was engineered to deliver low rolling resistance for improved efficiency to fleets regardless of drivetrain.

The company said the tire is engineered with “Treadlock Technology” to promote even wear and longer miles to removal. RangeMax RSD EV is the first regional drive tire embossed with Goodyear’s “Electric Drive Ready” designation. Available now in size 295/75R22.5, Goodyear said additional features and benefits of RangeMax RSD EV include:

  • Three-peak mountain snowflake and mud and snow designations
  • Premium casing construction
  • Tread pattern designed for high torque applications and an optimized footprint shape for even treadwear.

RangeMax RSD EV is the latest addition to Goodyear’s EV tire portfolio. In response to the increased usage of electric vehicles in parts of the industry, Goodyear last year introduced its first commercial truck tire with its “Electric Drive Ready” designation, Endurance RSA ULT.
