Goodyear does deal with Daf Trucks for Fuelmax and Kmax tyres

  • 10 December 2013
  • By David Wilcox

Goodyear has clinched a deal to supply Daf Trucks with Fuelmax and Kmax tyres for line fitment on Euro-6 versions of its LF, CF and XF ranges.

Operators still have the option of specifying alternatives from Michelin, Continental or Pirelli but otherwise the standard default brand is Goodyear, with Fuelmax and Kmax replacing the previous generation of Goodyear’s long-haul and regional tyres. Fuelmax will be fitted where fuel efficiency is the number one priority, typically on the XF; more buyers of LF and CF models may choose Kmax if they consider tyre life counts for more.

Goodyear mounts tyres on rims for a range of European truck and trailer manufacturers at its Luxembourg Mounting Centre. Tyres – not just Goodyear’s – are mounted and inflated at a rate of four every minute and then delivered to vehicle manufacturers as complete assemblies in sequenced order, direct to the line-side on a just-in-time basis.

“We are delighted that Daf has selected our new Kmax and Fuelmax for its latest trucks,” said Boris Stevanovic, Goodyear Dunlop’s European marketing director for truck tyres. 

“We have had a long relationship with Daf and have worked together with them for many years in developing products to enhance the performance of their vehicles.  The Kmax and Fuelmax tyres being supplied as original equipment mean that operators who buy these trucks can benefit further from the high mileage and low fuel consumption that our new tyres offer.”
