Good news for trucking fleets and owner operators interested in fuel efficiency! The Double Coin RLB450 drive position tire has met the requirements for the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s (EPA) SmartWay® Technology Program.
The EPA has verified that the RLB450 has met the low rolling resistance tire performance criteria for new tires being used in the drive position on a line-haul class-8 tractor trailer. Since 2004, EPA’s SmartWay Technology Program tests and verifies the performance of vehicles, technologies and equipment that have the potential to lower greenhouse gases and other air pollutants from freight transport.
The ultra premium RLB450 is a regional/long-haul drive-position tire designed to
deliver superior traction in all weather conditions. Featuring an innovative open shoulder directional tread design, the RLB450 has a multi-extruded tread package which promotes cooler running, thus preserving casing integrity.
It joins six other Double Coin fuel efficient models in our product line. We are very pleased to have our premium products recognized by the EPA for our low rolling resistance technology. Double Coin customers can be assured that using any of our low rolling resistance tires will assist them in reducing emissions and increasing fuel mileage.
Besides the RLB450, Double Coin has six tires that are SmartWay verified: the RR680, FR605, FD405, FT105, FT125, and the FD425.
