The Fuel Max LHD G505D is SmartWay-verified and designed to improve fuel economy by incorpo- rating fuel-efficient compounds, tire constructions and tread designs to lower the rolling resistance of the tires, according to the manufacturer. The new tire features a highly siped center rib and lateral grooves for better all season traction. Goodyear Tred- lock technology contains interlock- ing micro-grooves and a wide tread to help stabilize the tread. The tire fea- tures a steel-belt casing package for endurance and better retreadabilty, and penetration protectors to resist stone drilling.
