Goodyear AS-3A Provides Excellent Snow Traction To Help End Users Elevate Their Productivity

AKRON, Ohio, Oct. 18, 2017 – The Goodyear Tire & Rubber Company is committed to helping construction companies, mining operations and quarries elevate their productivity while lowering their operating costs through a combination of trusted products, worldwide support, reliable services and management tools.

To help end users achieve these objectives, Goodyear has added a key size, 20.5R25, to the AS-3A, its best all-season tire for construction, mining and quarry applications.

"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," said Eric Matson, global field engineering manager, Goodyear.

The high net-to-gross 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 optimized ice and snow traction
  • Multiple groove edges for excellent traction across all surfaces
  • Flexible block elements for low stone retention
  • Wide-base construction for high flotation, enhanced stability and low ground pressure
  • A unique groove shape for optimized self-cleaning in all conditions

Goodyear also plans to add a high-demand retread size, 23.5R25, for the AS-3A in 2018. The new retread 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 comprehensive distribution network.

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

"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 optimise the performance of the Goodyear AS-3A," he continued. "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," he said. "We are confident that the now-complete Goodyear AS-3A tire line will help accomplish that."
