Continental has introduced a new size of the 16-inch Conti LAR 3, an all-position tire that the company says is built for the high scrub conditions faced by regional delivery drivers. The Conti LAR 3 is designed to withstand the rigors of regional routes and speeds of more than 90 MPH under max load. In addition, its all-steel radial casing is optimized for retreadability, Continental says.
The company says other features of the Conti LAR 3 include cut-and-chip resistant tread compounds to withstand high scrub conditions, optimal handling with a pattern engineered to minimize stone retention and maximize wet traction, and fuel efficiency coupled with high mileage. The 10-ply radial provides increased load carrying capacity and puncture resistance and its all-steel construction delivers increased retreadability.
The Conti LAR 3 is now available in four sizes: LT215/85R16, LT225/75R16, LT235/85R16, and LT245/75R16.
