GOODYEAR LATEST TYRE INNOVATIONS UNVEILED AT 2011 BRISBANE TRUCK SHOW

Tuesday, May 3rd, 2011

The 2011 Brisbane Truck Show from 5-8 May will host the launch of Goodyear’s latest commercial tyre innovations for the Australian market, the UrbanMax MCA and Omnitrac MSS II and MSD II.

Taking place at the Brisbane Exhibition & Convention Centre, the CVIAQ event will showcase a huge range of trucks, trailers, transport equipment and technology, including the exclusive unveiling of the UrbanMax and Omnitrac tyres at the Beaurepaires stand throughout the weekend.


David Hamilton, Goodyear Commercial Product Manager, explains that the innovative new products are significant introductions for the industry. “The Goodyear UrbanMax MCA, an all position tyre, is specifically designed for use by municipal vehicles operating in tough urban environments and offers high mileage, enhanced damage resistance and superb braking, particular on wet roads,” Mr. Hamilton said.

“While the Goodyear Omnitrac MSS 2 for steer axles and Omnitrac MSD 2 for drive axles offers mixed service vehicles the latest in Goodyear’s Max Technology platform packed with benefits including enhanced mileage and traction.” “We believe that these tyres set a new benchmark in the municipal and mixed service markets.”

New UrbanMax Municipal Tyre Gives More Mileage

The UrbanMax MCA is a member of Goodyear’s innovative family of Max Technologies, which use latest technology materials, dedicated tread patterns and durable carcass construction for the new range of city buses, garbage trucks and other municipal vehicles. “The Goodyear UrbanMax MCA is a significant new product for our customers and the industry. The biggest improvement is in the mileage these tyres offer,” Mr. Hamilton said. “Tyres in municipal operation suffer from rapid wear rates caused by frequent stopping and starting, tight turning circles and casing damage from grinding against curbs.

“To address these common tyre issues, in addition to significantly higher mileage, the UrbanMax MCA features reinforced sidewalls, which provide increased protection against curb damage, and sidewall wear indicators to identify worn sidewalls. Low noise emission is a further advantage for passengers and the environment.”

The tread of the UrbanMax has a wide five-rib pattern for high mileage, low noise and good handling. Edge blading gives excellent wet performance as well as even wear. The hi-amplitude centreline gives the MCA its all position capability as it provides traction. Finally the shoulders are non-intrusive for damage resistance.

Goodyear Omnitrac ‘Next Generation’ Mixed Service Tyres
Goodyear’s latest truck tyres for mixed service applications, the Omnitrac MSS II and Omnitrac MSD II, are the newest Max Technology products from the tyre manufacturer, and offer a wide range of benefits for operators of tippers, concrete mixers, mining vehicles and other vehicles in the construction world. “Enhanced mileage and traction with greater damage protection are the main benefits of the Goodyear’s Omnitrac MSS II tyre for steer axles and Omnitrac MSD II for drive axles,” Mr. Hamilton said.

The UrbanMax MCA and Omnitrac MSS II and MSD II will be unveiled at the 2011 Brisbane Truck Show from 5-8 May
