A word from the Goodyear expert 


“In some cities, snow and ice is a regular occurrence at certain times of the year. Bus operators often choose URBANMAX MCD TRACTION on the drive axle because it gives them the extra traction they need. The regular URBANMAX MCA are perfect for the other axles where traction is less important.”
