Goodyear® Tires Now Available on XC RV Chassis from Freightliner Custom Chassis Corporation

GAFFNEY, S.C. — Freightliner Custom Chassis Corporation (FCCC) now offers Goodyear tires on the XC RV Chassis. The addition of Goodyear to FCCC’s supplier list of world-class tire manufacturers allows OEM customers greater freedom to determine specifications for their individual chassis.



“Expanding our tire options allows our customers to better differentiate their products in the marketplace, and we are pleased to offer Goodyear tires to our OEM customers,” said Dean Schaper, Freightliner Custom Chassis Corporation Director of Sales and Marketing.



The Goodyear tire model G670RV is now available on the XC chassis in sizes 275 70R 22.5, 275 80R 22.5 and 295 80R 22.5. The Goodyear tire focuses on improvements in ride and handling—critical attributes for the motorhome application.



“The G670RV was specifically designed for motorhome applications,” said Mike Haney, Goodyear OE Account Executive. “It’s not your typical truck tire. This tire has RV-specific rubber compounding that enables it to run cooler. The advantage of this is enhanced durability. Motorhomes typically stay loaded at all times, whereas a trucking application usually operates under a diminishing load as the day goes on.”
