AKRON, Ohio , Sept. 7, 2022 /PRNewswire/ -- The Goodyear Tire & Rubber Company (NASDAQ: GT) today announced a new addition to its hard-working Armor Max® lineup, the Goodyear Armor Max Extreme Service Drive (ESD) tire. Engineered to tackle tough jobs in extreme environments, Armor Max ESD is Goodyear's best commercial mixed service drive tire for durability and traction in severe applications.

Armor Max ESD is now available in 11R22.5 H and 11R24.5 H sizes to meet the demanding needs of the premium mixed-service segment. Specifically designed for heavy duty construction, logging, oil and mining work vehicles, its tread compound helps resist cuts, chips and tears and provides durability.

  • Enhanced under-tread that provides added protection against stone drilling and improves casing durability.
  • An innovative sidewall design that allows chains to be placed above tread blocks, while helping to minimize slippage for enhanced performance.
