Continental highlights next gen General Tire commercial products

Continental recently highlighted its General Tire brand commercial tires. The General HS 2 steer tire, General HD 2 drive tire, and General HT+ trailer tire are ideal for long haul applications, the company noted. The tires offer SmartWay-verified designs with enhanced mileage and durability, delivering significant improvements over the predecessor products and carry a six year, three retreads warranty.

The balanced performance of the General HS 2 long haul, highway steer tire, offers an improved footprint for 50% better mileage and improved wear versus the General HS, according to Continental. The technologically advanced tread compound contributes to low rolling resistance for optimum fuel efficiency, with all sizes SmartWay verified. Shoulder and decoupler groove modifications add enhanced durability for resistance to cuts & tears. The tire also features a retreadable casing. It is available in 11R22.5, 11R24.5, 295/75R22.5, and 285/75R22.5 sizes in Load Range H with 19/32 in. tread depth.

The General HD 2 drive tire was developed with the long-haul application in mind. The closed shoulder tread design provides even tread wear and enhanced wet traction. The advanced tread compound delivers improved mileage and durability versus the General HD, while still providing SmartWay-verified low rolling resistance for maximized fuel economy, the tire manufacturer noted. Patented innovative groove technology leads to minimum stone retention, extending casing life and retreadability. It is available in 11R22.5 (Load Range G and H), 295/75R22.5 (G), 11R24.5 (G and H), and 285/75R22.5 sizes, with a 28/32 in. tread depth for extended tire life.

The fuel efficient General HT+ long haul trailer tire offers a 20% mileage improvement and 15% more resistance to cut/chip/chunk versus the General HT, due to its advanced tread compound. The ultra low rolling resistance design provides maximum fuel efficiency, and is both SmartWay verified and GHG 2 (Greenhouse Gas Phase II) compliant in the 295/75R22.5 (G) and 285/75R24.5 (G) sizes. The 11R22.5 (G) and 11R24.5 (G) are SmartWay verified. It is also available in 255/70R22.5 (H) size. The General HT+ features a self-cleaning tread design and groove geometry to prevent stone trapping for extended casing life and retreadability. The tire has a 13/32 in. tread depth, with the exception of the 255/70R22.5 (H) size which is 18/32 in.
