Goodyear wins military-supply contract

May 12, 2009 1:39 PM

Goodyear has been selected as the standard tire supplier for the U.S. military's Family of Medium Tactical Vehicles (FMTV) by BAE Tactical Vehicle Systems.

RMTVs are the U.S. Army's vehicle of choice in the 2.5- to 10-ton capacity range. The contract calls for the delivery of approximately 100,000 395/85R20 MV/T tires through 2010. The tires will be manufactured at Goodyear's Danville, VA, factory.

The FMTV is based on a common cab, chassis and internal components. The 16 production models vary by payload and mission requirements, and perform linehaul, local haul, unit resupply, and other missions in combat, combat support, and combat service support units. More than 53,000 FMTVs and trailers have been produced since 1991.
