Continental introduces five new truck tires

Continental Tire North America Inc. (CTNA) recently unveiled its next generation of new truck tires. The all-new entrants to Continental’s tire line-up include the latest technology designed to improve fuel efficiency and extend tire mileage, the company related. “Continental is offering truck fleets outstanding new products that meet their needs; from steer tires, to drive tires, to trailer tires,” said Clif Armstrong, commercial vehicle tire marketing director for Continental Tire – The Americas. ”We listened to our customers and used their feedback to create tires that maximize the efficiency of their operations and offer them the lowest overall driving costs.”

Continental Tire North America Inc. (CTNA) recently unveiled its next generation of new truck tires. The all-new entrants to Continental’s tire line-up include the latest technology designed to improve fuel efficiency and extend tire mileage, the company related. “Continental is offering truck fleets outstanding new products that meet their needs; from steer tires, to drive tires, to trailer tires,” said Clif Armstrong, commercial vehicle tire marketing director for Continental Tire – The Americas. ”We listened to our customers and used their feedback to create tires that maximize the efficiency of their operations and offer them the lowest overall driving costs.”

Leading the charge for the new Continental line-up is the redesigned regional steer tire, the HSR2, which replaces Continental’s best-selling HSR, introduced in 2002. Produced in Continental’s Mt. Vernon , Ill. award-winning manufacturing plant, the HSR2 (Heavy Steer Regional) has an updated tread compound designed to increase mileage by 15% over the current HSR.

Continental’s all-new HDL2 DL (Heavy Drive Long-Haul Deep Lug) over-the-highway long haul drive tire sports a full inch of tread depth.

Trailer tires contribute 42% of the rolling resistance of all the tires on a typical long haul truck. That’s why Continental engineers were intent upon making the HTL Eco Plus (Heavy Trailer Long-Haul) one of the most fuel-efficient trailer tires possible. This new tire improves fuel economy by 10% while tread depth increases by 3%.

Waste haulers and construction fleet owners are being offered the new HSU2 (Heavy Steer Urban) as a tire that offers maximum life through its 8% deeper tread and 17% increased tread volume, putting more “rubber on the road,” according to CTNA.

Designed to replace two trailer tires, the wide-based super single HTL1 (Heavy Trailer Long-Haul) tire features 13/32-in. tread depth that is said to minimize irregular wear and maximize fuel efficiency.
