The first wide-base tire with self-sealing DuraSeal Technology®.
Goodyear's G392 SSD drive and G394 SST trailer wide-base tires for long-haul and regional-haul applications feature Fuel Max Technology and are the first in the industry to offer flat protection with Goodyear’s exclusive DuraSeal Technology.
DuraSeal Technology is a gel-like inner liner which instantly seals punctures of up to ¼-inch in the repairable area of the tread. DuraSeal does not seal sidewall punctures.
If a standard wide-base tire hits a nail or other debris and goes flat, there is no limp-home capability, and in about 30 percent of the cases, the tire deflates to a level where it ruins a $450 wheel.
With Goodyear’s DuraSeal Technology, you can run confidently with wide-base and reap the weight-saving benefits of the tires, while gaining excellent fuel economy and long miles to removal. DuraSeal Technology, which has been in use in Goodyear's mixed service and trailer tires for several years, has been saving customers money and downtime.
The G392 SSD and G394 SST are SmartWay-verified, joining Goodyear’s complete line of long-haul and regional SmartWay-approved tires.
The combination of Goodyear's G392 and G394 can save more than 1,100 pounds over a dual assembly, and achieve comparable fuel economy numbers to other SmartWay- verified tires in the marketplace. And while DuraSeal Technology sets these tires apart, they also achieve best-in-class handling and offer excellent tread depth in the drive position with a tread pattern that helps resist irregular wear.
This wide-base combination provides exceptional performance and value to help drive down cost-per-mile.
G392 SSD DuraSeal + Fuel Max
Goodyear’s unique nine-rib design, with eight wide, circumferential grooves, provides all season traction in dry, wet and snowy conditions. Combined with its deep, 25/32” tread depth for long initial tire life, the tire tested best in class in wet and dry traction at Goodyear’s test facility in San Angelo, Texas, and snow performance testing in Minnesota. The design of the tread is coupled with a casing construction that restricts casing expansion to help alleviate irregular wear. The G392 SSD is available in load range “L” in a 445/50R22.5 size.
G394 SST DuraSeal + Fuel Max
Featuring a five-rib design with minimal blades, the G394 SST has tread compounding for SmartWay verification and long miles to removal. Its 12/32” tread depth provides an excellent balance to maximize fuel economy, weight and tread life. The optimized tread and mold design provides for a uniform footprint to help resist irregular wear while providing a quiet ride. The tire’s robust shoulder design and casing construction helps it resist curbing damage. The G394 SST is available in load range “L” in a 445/50R22.5 size.
