The EPA Phase II standards for medium- and heavy-duty vehicles, which will be announced any day now, are expected to build on the first-ever standards for medium- and heavy-duty vehicles (model years 2014 through 2018). Thus, they will apply first to 2019 model-year vehicles. In addition, regulation of trailers is almost a certainty under the rules currently being drafted, according to this insightful article in Fleet Owner magazine.
The Double Coin OptiGreen™ series of SmartWay® verified tires is at the forefront of fuel efficient tires for truck and trailer OEMs facing the new stringent EPA standards, as well as for fleets and owner operators working hard to trim operational costs.
There is an OptiGreen tire for every wheel position. For instance, the FR605 steer tire (pictured to the right) provides fuel efficiency, as well extensive siping and defense grooves in the tread design for even wear and excellent traction. The 17/32” tread depth, with an equalizer rib in channel, promotes long original mileage. These benefits, combined with a very retreadable casing, all add up to a low total cost of ownership.
