Yokohama Introduces the New Geolandar MT G003

 

M-Yokohama-Geolandar-MT-2.jpgYokohama Tire Corp. has been producing off-road tires since 1982, when the Super Digger was launched. Thirty-five years later, the company still offers the Y829 Super Digger III bias off-road racing tire in size 33×10.50-15!

The Geolandar M/T directional tire was introduced in 1998. Yokohama tweaked the design and compounding in 2004; the resulting M/T+ G001 became a new SKU number, but was hardly a new tire.

More than two decades have passed since the creation of the original Geolandar M/T, which makes the new Geolandar M/T G003 highly anticipated by Yokohama dealers in the U.S.

The M/T G003 features a non-directional tread pattern and is equal to or superior in every way to the tire it replaces, the G001, says Bob Abram, senior manager of product planning.

“The directional tread design of the old G001 wasn’t playing with customers or dealers. Getting the looks right of this tire was important because we knew what happens when you don’t get the looks right, even if the performance is pretty good.”

Features and benefits

Yokohama says the Geolandar M/T G003 is superior to the G001 not only in mud traction but also in dry braking and snow braking. It also weighs less, which results in greater fuel efficiency.

The tire’s dry, mud and wet traction were engineered using a triple-polymer tread compound combined with optimized sipes and “an ideal” block-to-void ratio. The tread also features an advanced variable pitch pattern that Abram says will be a big selling point for Yokohama dealers.

“One of the things that came out of our research with consumers and dealers alike is they want a quiet tire — for a mud tire. They don’t expect it to be touring tire quiet, but they would like to use it as an extra selling feature.

“We’ve got a new multi-pitch variation that helps keep the noise down. That helps even out those peak harmonics, which are what make a lot of the noise when the tire is rolling at highway speeds.”

Yokohama’s new Geo-Shield construction incorporates multiple sidewall plies, steel belts, a full nylon cap and a high turn-up carcass into the design. All Load Range E and D sizes feature three-ply technology.

“The three-ply is important as a marketing tool,” he says. “It gives consumers confidence that we have extra strength in the sidewall to protect against punctures and to hold up to heavy use. Also, that full nylon cap helps you avoid tread punctures, so there is an extra layer of protection there.”

Abram says sidewall durability is not a major concern for the urban cowboy, but “is a huge issue for people who are really beating up and using their vehicles off-road.”

The G003’s Sidewall Armor not only protects the sidewall against impacts, but also adds traction elements to the design. And it gives the tire a unique, aggressive look.

“We were trying to avoid coming out with an M/T tire that was so ‘me, too,’ that looked just like the Toyo Open Country M/T or the Hankook Dynapro MT RT03 or BFGoodrich T/A KM2, for example. We didn’t want that to happen, but we also wanted to say to the extreme off-roader, ‘We have something extra for you.’”

By the end of the year, the Geolandar M/T G003 will be available in 37 Q-rated sizes, with rim diameters ranging from 15 to 20 inches. They will be introduced in three waves, broken out by the following load ranges:

July 1: 18 LRE, 1 LRC, 1 LRD (including LT255/75R17 LRC, LT275/65R20 LRE and LT305/55R20 LRE).

September 1: 8 LRE, 4 LRC.

November 1: 3 LRC, 2 LRE.

Yokohama backs the tire with a 30-day money-back trial pledge.

According to Abram, the mud-terrain segment in the U.S. accounted for more than 3.6 million tires in 2016, compared to more than 2.8 million in 2012.

The top five selling light trucks in 2016 were the Ford F Series, Chevy Silverado, Dodge Ram, GMC Sierra and the Jeep Wrangler. Those vehicles “are right in our wheelhouse of what we want as potential fitments for this Geolandar mud tire,” he says. So are some specialized vehicles designed for more rugged duty like the F-150 Raptor, Jeep Wrangler Rubicon, and the Toyota 4Runner TRD Pro.

TitanGrizzBrandsLogo

 

Titan International Inc. has reached tentative agreements with the United Steelworkers (USW) unions representing its plants in Des Moines, Iowa; Bryan, Ohio; and Freeport, Ill. Votes are expected in the coming weeks.

Paul Reitz, CEO and president of Titan, announced the tentative agreements during the company’s first-quarter earnings call on May 4, 2017. The current labor agreements expired in November 2016, and operations at the plants have continued while both sides worked on negotiations.

“Titan has a longstanding, good relationship with the USW, as evidenced over the past couple of years when we worked closely together to present cases to the International Trade Commission (ITC) regarding OTR tires from China, India and Sri Lanka.,” Reitz said. “Their support in these cases was greatly appreciated and instrumental in the successful determinations from the ITC. For more than 20 years, we’ve viewed the USW and its members as an integral part of the Titan team and we appreciate their hard work in building quality tires day-in and day-out at our North American tire plants.”

Omni United Extends Golf Sponsorship

M-RadarShadoff-584179728-LR-1.jpgOmni United (S) Pte. Ltd. has signed Ladies Professional Golf Association (LPGA) golfer Jodi Ewart Shadoff as ambassador for its flagship Radar tires brand for the second straight year.

The 2017 LPGA Tour begins this week in Australia. The ISPS Honda Women’s Australian Open kicks off at the Royal Adelaide Golf Club in South Australia February 16-19.

After a career-best second place finish at the 2016 Citi Banamex Lorena Ochoa Invitational at Mexico City, Shadoff looks to continue the momentum into 2017.

“I am really excited and looking forward to start my 2017 season in Australia this week. 2016 was an exciting year for me and I hope to be able to up my game in the 2017 season. I am thankful to my sponsors Radar tires and Omni United for their continued support,” says Shadoff.

Omni United signed Jodi as a brand ambassador for Radar tires, Omni United’s flagship brand in 2016. As a part of the agreement, Jodi represents Radar tires in the LPGA tournaments and carries the brand logo on her apparel and golf bag.

In October 2016 Jodi joined with the Radar tires brand in support of the Breast Cancer Research Foundation (BCRF), a nonprofit breast cancer organization in the US committed to achieving prevention and a cure for breast cancer.

Radar tires has been supporting this organization for more than 5 years now and to date donated over $1 million USD.

All through the month of October, Jodi wore pink and carried a pink golf bag to spread awareness and show support for the cause. Throughout the year Jodi was also part of a number of Radar dealer meets and programs where customers got a chance to play golf with the pro.

Omni United says 2017 will see an increased number of activities and programs involving Jodi and the dealers for greater promotion of the Radar brand.

From 2015 to 2016 Jodi managed to significantly improve her game, moving up from 206th to 59th in the official world rankings and working her way to the 32nd rank in the official money list from 98th in 2015. She improved on various parameters like number of birdies from 85th to 8th and overall finishing ten tournaments in the top 20.

Her best finish was in November 2016, where she tied for second place at the Citi Banamex Lorena Ochoa Invitational at Mexico City.

“I have always believed in Jodi’s capabilities and see her as one of the fast-rising stars in the world of professional golf. I wish her all the best for the 2017 season. Radar tires and Omni United is always there to support her,” says GS Sareen, founder and CEO, Omni United.

The company has other sports marketing programs for its Radar tires brand. For the past five years, Radar tires has sponsored motorsports teams in several offroad racing series. In 2014 Radar tires’ sponsored teams swept the SCORE International Baja races – winning the Baja 250, 500 and 1000 in class 10. In 2015 and 2016, Radar tires teams placed top 3 in several off road points’ championships.

Nokian Introduces New Winter Tires for 2017

M-Nokian-Hakkapeliitta-9-Functional-Studding-2-1.jpg

 

Nokian Tyres plc is bringing a new Hakkapeliitta tire to the winter tire market in 2017. Actually, it’s offering two: the Hakkapeliitta 9 for passenger cars, and the Hakkapeliitta 9 SUV.
Nokian says the tire features new stud technology, a new tread pattern, new tire structure, and a new rubber compound. The tire wil be available in fall 2017.
Tthe Hakkapeliitta 9 showcases the new adaptive Nokian functional stud concept, which features two designs of studs on the tire for use during specific driving conditions, such as braking or accelerating and cornering, which Nokian says ensures optimal traction in all winter conditions.

The tire provides longitudinal and lateral grip on icy and snowy driving surfaces, and behaves in a controlled and logical manner, the company says. The new tread pattern offers stable bare-road handling, a comfortably silent ride and rolls lighter than previous Hakkapeliitta generations resulting in improved fuel economy.

“As we’ve seen during the past few months, the snow and ice of winter results in dangerous driving conditions on the roads,” says Tommi Heinonen, president of Nokian Tyres North America. “Leveraging 80 years and millions of miles driven on Hakkapeliittas, our team developed the safest, most comfortable winter tire that we can’t wait to bring to drivers throughout North America.”

All about the studs

Nokian spent four years and countless miles of testing developing its newest flagship product, and it was fine-tuned to master extreme conditions at the tire maker’s White Hell testing center located north of the Arctic Circle in Ivalo, Finland.

“One of our starting points was to develop a completely new studded tire that combines balanced longitudinal and lateral grip with eco-friendliness,” says Juha Pirhonen, vice president of research and development for Nokian. “Unique to the Hakkapeliitta 9, the new stud technology features a dedicated, tailored stud for the center of the tread and a separate stud for the shoulder areas.”
The studs in the center area maximize longitudinal grip during acceleration and braking; and the tire is supported by the shape of the studs’ body, lower flange and hard metal center. The longitudinally wide hard metal pin on the center studs offers a maximum grip surface for the best possible longitudinal grip.
“The upper part of the stud body is bevelled, which allows the stud to penetrate even deeper into the ice than before; this further improves braking grip and lateral grip,” says Pirhonen.

The shoulder studs have been designed to provide lateral grip, which is especially important when cornering on slippery surfaces. The stud body and flange are different from the center studs, and the triaxial hard metal pin has been designed to withstand lateral forces. When cornering, the studs will encounter maximal surface-area, which improves lateral grip. This technical innovation offers improved, precise handling under slippery conditions, the company says.

In an effort to produce safer, more eco-friendly tires, Nokian developed the Eco Stud 9 concept for use in the Hakkapeliitta 9. The Eco Stud 9 concept is incorporated into both the center rib and shoulder studs to reduce road wear and ensure a quiet ride. The technology consists of an Eco Stud cushion to dampen road contact, an air space in the middle of the lower flange for reduced stud impact and bevelled hard metal tips to distribute the stud’s impact force across a wider area.

Designed for all road conditions

In addition to its ice grip, the Nokian Hakkapeliitta 9 performs on snowy and dry roads. The tread pattern is heavily grooved with self-locking 3D sipes allowing the tire to respond quickly and sensitively to steering for improved handling. The self-locking sipes lock the tread blocks firmly together on road contact, which results in fluent driving during cornering and evasions.

Dense siping combined with snow grip boosters on both sides of the middle blocks in the center of the tread provides more sharp edges for improved snow grip in both the longitudinal and lateral directions. The aggressive deep snow boosters on the shoulder areas provide additional grip when driving in deep snow.
The Hakkapeliitta 9 features a new type of eco-friendly winter tread compound, which contains silica and canola oil for improved tear resistance, natural rubber and the new Green Elasto Proof biomaterial that keeps the compound elastic at low temperatures. Nokian says the compound’s chemical bonds provide a sturdy grip year after year, even as the miles add up.
Because a large amount of winter driving takes place on bare roads, Nokian fitted the Hakkapeliitta 9 with its stability support network tread pattern, where the tread support network is rigid and unified at the bottom of the pattern getting more grooves and sipes where the rubber meets the road.

The strong ultra high tensile steel belt structure makes the structure light but hard, providing precise handling even at higher speeds. The sturdy structure also helps prevent punctures and the new special clinch rubber compound in the bead area improves driving comfort and durability.

The Hakkapeliitta 9 also features Nokian’s driving safety indicator to indicate remaining tread, and the snowflake symbol or winter safety indicator to indicate when it is recommended to replace tires.

Sizing and specifications

The Hakkapeliitta 9 is designed for passenger vehicles, and covers 52 sizes from 14 to 20 inches. Most are marked XL for the highest possible load capacity in that particular size.

The Hakkapeliitta 9 SUV comes in 51 sizes from 16 to 21 inches and features the aramid sidewall technology, which uses aramid fibre, to optimize durability. The selection also offers several products that employ Flat Run technology or that are marked XL for the highest possible load capacity.

Goodyear’s Concept Tire Recognized as one of the Years Best Inventions

M-Goodyear-blimp-BBMOffice-2-15Goodyear Tire & Rubber Co.’s Eagle-360 concept tire has been named one of Time magazine’s “Best Inventions of the Year 2016.”

“By steadily reducing the driver interaction and intervention in self-driving vehicles, tires will play an even more important role as the primary link to the road,” says Goodyear’s Chief Technical Officer Joe Zekoski. “Goodyear’s concept tires play a dual role in that future both as creative platforms to push the boundaries of conventional thinking and testbeds for next-generation technologies.”

Each year, Time magazine’s technology editors list the year’s “best inventions that are making the world better, smarter and—in some cases—a little more fun.” This year’s list includes 25 inventions. In addition to Goodyear’s Eagle-360 concept, the list includes a virtual reality headset, shoes that lace themselves, a solar roof collaboration between Tesla and SolarCity, and the Chevy Bolt electric vehicle.

The Goodyear Eagle-360 is a spherical-shaped design concept tire that would provide self-driving cars ultimate maneuverability, connectivity and biomimicry to increase safety. “Although the Eagle-360 is a future concept, it represents an essential aspect of Goodyear’s innovation strategy and our vision for smart and safe mobility,” says Zekoski.

Onmi United Passes the One Million Mark to Fight Against Breast Cancer

Breast-Cancer-Ribbon5-200x300.jpg

 

Over the last five years, the Radar tire brand has raised more than $1 million to fight breast cancer. And Omni United (S) Pte. Ltd., owner and distributor of the Radar private brand, plans to continue the fight with the help of the Breast Cancer Research Foundation (BCRF).
“Giving back is one of the corporate values upon which we have built Omni United and Radar tires,” says GS Sareen, founder and CEO of Omni United. “It is one of my most cherished corporate values, less about social responsibility and more about running our company responsibly.”

“Our partnership with the BCRF has allowed us and, indirectly, also our customers, to contribute in a meaningful way to fund research towards the prevention and cure of breast cancer, a disease that has touched so many in our communities and among the friends and families of our employees, customers, suppliers and friends. We will continue supporting the BCRF in their relentless endeavor of advancing research towards finding a cure for breast cancer.”

In 2011 Omni launched the “Mobilizing Hope” campaign, a corporate alliance with the BCRF that has included donations for each Radar tire sold and one-off contributions. To date this campaign has contributed more than $1 million, which has funded over 21,000 hours of some of the world’s most promising and innovative research toward preventing and curing breast cancer.

Besides monetary contributions to the BCRF over the last five years, Omni United and Radar tires have sponsored and undertaken numerous initiatives to spread awareness for this cause, including:

* launching a limited edition “pink sidewall” tire, sold through Sears Auto Centers;

* encouraging their customers, tire distributors, dealers and retailers throughout the world to support the Mobilizing Hope campaign by providing them with in store displays, pink ribbons and other awareness materials to distribute among customers;

* displaying the logo of the BCRF on all the racing cars and gear of the Radar tire motorsports teams;

* supporting the BCRF in all international tire fairs and other events in which Omni and Radar tires participate.

“Our corporate partnership with Omni and the team has been rewarding and innovative in bringing a predominately female cause into a mostly male environment, the world of tires,” says Myra Biblowit, BCRF president. “We are delighted to reach this 5-year milestone and grateful for the ongoing support from Omni, which has helped us fund some critical research.”

This year Radar’s brand ambassador, LPGA golfer Jodi Ewart Shadoff, will further increase awareness of this cause and of the work of the BCRF by wearing pink gear and using a specially designed pink golf club bag in all the October tournaments in which she is due to participate, including the Fubon LPGA Taiwan Championship in Taipei from Oct. 6-9; the LPGA Keb Hana Bank Championship in Incheon, South Korea, from Oct. 13-16; and the Sime Darby LPGA Malaysia in Kuala Lumpur from Oct. 27-30.

Radar is the flagship brand of Singapore-based Omni United, which does business in the United States as Omni United USA. All Radar tires have distinct labeling identifying the product as supportive of the Breast Cancer Research Foundation. This includes all of Radar’s new products: the Dimax R8+, Dimax AS 8, Renegade A/T 5 and Renegade R7 M/T.
