The Goodyear Tire & Rubber Co. added a 20.5R25 size to its AS-3A all-season off-the-road (OTR) tire. The 20.5R25 AS-3A tire has a 40/32-in. tread depth for improved traction.

The AS-3A tire boasts specifically placed blades for optimized ice and snow traction, multiple groove edges for enhanced traction, flexible block elements for low stone retention, wide-base construction for high stability and a unique groove shape for self-cleaning in all conditions, the company says.

“This important addition completes the tire’s size line-up, which covers a full range of applications and conditions, including snow and ice-covered surfaces that require exceptional traction,” says Eric Matson, global field engineering manager at Goodyear. “We also offer comprehensive after-sale services, such as on-site consultations, site audits, footprint evaluations, temperature studies and tire surveys, all designed to help optimize the performance of the Goodyear AS-3A. Our powerful management tools, including our exclusive EMTrack online tire performance management system, are available to AS-3A customers, as well.”

Goodyear also plans to add a 23.5R25 retread size for the AS-3A in 2018. Other existing sizes for the AS-3A tire include 14.00R24/25, 16.00R24/25, 16.00×24, 17.5R25, 20.5R25 and 20.5×25.
