Armor Max ESD is now available in 11R22.5 H and 11R24.5 H sizes to meet the demanding needs of the premium mixed-service segment. Specifically designed for heavy duty construction, logging, oil and mining work vehicles, its tread compound helps resist cuts, chips and tears and provides durability.

“Hardworking vocations like mining and construction need a tire that can withstand tough terrain with confidence,” said Jessica Julian, commercial product marketing manager, Goodyear North America. “The new Armor Max ESD delivers performance and durability that fleets need to help optimize productivity in these severe applications.”

Other key features and benefits include:

  • An aggressive, deep 32/32 tread design that helps minimize mud and snow buildup for enhanced off-road traction.
  • Optimized tread geometry that improves resistance to stone holding.
  • Enhanced under-tread that provides added protection against stone drilling and improves casing durability.
  • An innovative sidewall design that allows chains to be placed above tread blocks, while helping to minimize slippage for enhanced performance.

The new Armor Max ESD tires are part of Goodyear’s Total Mobility platform of providing trusted products, a premier service network and complete tire management for customers. For more information on the Armor Max line and what it can do for your fleet, visit
