Continental displays tires and ContiConnect digital tire monitoring at TMC annual meeting

Continental is displaying its latest tires and digital tire monitoring solutions at the TMC Annual Meeting. Making their trade show debut are three long-haul tires: Conti EcoPlus HS3+ steer, HDL2 DL+ drive, and Conti HTL 3 trailer. The tires are ideal for fleets who need high mileage performance coupled with fuel efficiency. In addition, the drive tire specially developed for one of the country’s largest LTL carriers, the Conti HDL 3 LTL, is now available to the wider market. The company will also display its ContiConnect Yard terminal-based and ContiConnect Live over-the-road tire monitoring solutions.

The Conti EcoPlus HS3+ is SmartWay verified, CARB compliant, and is covered by a seven-year, three-retread warranty. It has a 19/32” tread depth and is currently available in the following sizes: 11R22.5 Load Range G and H, 295/75R22.5 Load Range G and H, 11R24.5 Load Range H, and 285/75R24.5 Load Range H.

The HDL2 DL+ drive tire features new tread cap/base compounds to provide improved wear performance, extending original tire life. The 32/32” deep lug tread depth provides high mileage and low cost per mile. This is coupled with patented innovative groove technology for minimal stone retention, extending casing life. The tire is built on the Conti 3G casing for maximum retreadability. A matching retread is available.

The Conti HTL 3 high mileage trailer tire delivers improved mileage versus Continental’s most fuel-efficient trailer tire, the Conti EcoPlus HT3. Having tires focused on different performance aspects allows fleets to select the best tire for their business. The Conti HTL 3 features advanced tread compounding to balance cut and tear resistance with optimized rolling resistance, satisfying EPA Smartway and CARB requirements. Its durable sidewall construction defends against curbing, cuts and abrasions. The tire is built on the Conti 3G casing for maximum retreadability.

The Conti HTL 3 is covered by a seven-year, three-retread warranty. It has a 13/32” tread depth and is currently available in the following sizes: 11R22.5 Load Range G, 295/75R22.5 Load Range G, and 11R24.5 Load Range G.

The Conti HDL 3 LTL is covered by a seven-year, three-retread warranty. It has a 24/32” tread depth and is currently available in the following sizes: 11R22.5 Load Range G, 295/75R22.5 Load Range G, and 11R24.5 Load Range H.

ContiConnect Yard Reader is Continental’s terminal-based digital tire monitoring solution for commercial fleets, displaying tire pressure and temperature data for every vehicle in the fleet in a single web portal. It is ideal for fleets whose trucks or buses return to the terminal daily or multiple times per week.

ContiConnect Live is Continental’s over-the-road, real-time digital tire monitoring solution. It displays tire pressure and temperature for every vehicle in the fleet, regardless of the vehicle’s location, and includes a GPS location for tire alerts. It is ideal for real-time monitoring of multiple vehicles in any location, delivering actionable data even when vehicles are out on the road.

ContiConnect Live Integrated is available with telematics partners for additional ease of use. Zonar, the leader in smart fleet technology, offers the integration of the Continental bird’s eye-view into Zonar’s fleet management system. This integration generates tire pressure alerts directly to Zonar’s web portal, Ground Traffic Control, where dispatchers and technicians can see all wheel positions on a vehicle in real-time, including which tires are low. Drivers can also view the vehicle’s current tire pressure on their in-cab tablet.
