Continental debuts five new truck tires

Continental Tire the Americas introduced five new commercial truck tires this week at MATS.

The Conti EcoPlus HS3 steer and all-position tire offers a 10% reduction in rolling resistance and a 12% increase in mileage over the previous generation long haul steer tire, according to the tiremaker. Features include an advanced decoupler groove design and a “flap style” stone bumper system—both of which result in advanced life and retreadability, Conti added. The EcoPlus HS3 will be available to in early summer in size 295/75R22.5, load range H with 19/32nd tread depth.

The Conti Hybrid HS3, a steer and all-position tire for the combined regional and long haul segment, is available now in size 295/75R22.5 load range H.

The Conti TerraPlus HD3 is an off-road drive tire for the high traction needs of construction vehicles, work trucks and heavy commercial pickups. The first new product introduced in Continental’s 19.5-inch tire line, the TerraPlus HD3 will be available later this spring in size 225/70R19.5. The tire features a specialized, aggressive tread pattern with open shoulder, 19/32nds tread depth and an off-road belt package.

Two new bus tires also were debuted: the Conti Urban HA3 all-position and steer tire and the Conti Coach HA3.
