When Vicky Britton, the wife of an independent trucker, swiped her card for a contest being conducted at the Yokohama booth during March’s Mid-America Trucking Show in Kentucky, little did she know that her automatic entry would win her $5,000 worth of commercial truck tires.

Vicky and her husband Bill, who owns Bill Britton Trucking in Orwell, Ohio, are getting a free set of Yokohama’s top-of-the-line Zenvironment tires.

“Now my husband loves me even more,” says Vicky. “He and I were totally surprised to hear I won. It’s like winning the lottery.”

“The contest awards Bill Britton Trucking eight Yokohama 703ZL drive tires and two 101ZL steer tires along with free installation and valve stems at the Yokohama dealer of their choice,” explains John Cooney, director of commercial sales. “We’re happy the contest was such a success, and congratulations to the Brittons.”

“Thank you, Yokohama,” Vicky exclaims. “My husband’s very, very happy.”

The new 101ZL steer tire, which will be officially launched this fall, and the 703ZL drive tire are part of Yokohama’s eco-sensitive Zenvironment line and are on the Environmental Protection Agency’s SmartWay list of verified technologies for low rolling resistance tires. Yokohama now has seven models under the as SmartWay banner.

The 101ZL, which will be available in four sizes (295/75R22.5, 11R22.5, 11R24.5 and 285/75R24.5), is a premium steer tire designed for long-haul operations. It features enhanced durability, excellent longevity and greater fuel efficiency, according to Cooney. “Ideal,” he says, “for fleet owners and truck operators. The tires last longer and help preserve the environment because they are more fuel efficient.”

He goes on to note that “the high-tech, ultra-long mileage 703ZL tire features the deepest tread in the industry – one full inch – with the lowest rolling resistance in its category. It also has a solid closed shoulder that provides even wear, which translates to more road miles.”
