Kenworth customers can now specify Yokohama’s 101ZL, 703ZL, 709ZL, MY507, RY023, RY617, and TY517 tires when ordering their new Kenworth trucks. The tires are available in a variety of common sizes for truck use in on-highway and off-highway applications.

Tires with this designation can help reduce fuel use and provide cost savings to truck fleets and operators when used as instructed and kept properly inflated.
