Deep sipes in the 124R tires deliver outstanding traction in the rain and snow. Moreover, the 4 wavy circumferential grooves in the tires provide protection in wet and snowy conditions. Their optimal performance and tread allows them to carry the severe snow service designation.
The 124R has a fantastic rock shield platform that reduces debris and stone penetration to provide better casing life, retreadability, and durability.

The 124R comes with an extra-wide tread that improves the dispersal of contact pressure while driving along the road. This feature should provide longer tread life and enhanced stability.
505C Tires – What Are the Benefits?
Yokohama engineered 505C tires to keep trucks operating both on and off the highway. The tires are also available in three different sizes.
The 505C’s are durable and built to last, which can allow fleets to ultimately increase their profits.
Long Tread Life
The tires have a new tread pattern that increase’s their traction. They also have a unique anti-chip tread compound that promotes durability both on and off the highway.
It’s wide ribs and blocks provides remarkable traction in both snow and mud. The wide circumferential grooves help by removing water from beneath the treads to allow for optimal breaking. Yokohama added this feature to deliver extra wet traction.
