General Tire launched three new highway truck tires.
The General HS is a new long haul steer tire featuring an enhanced tread design, fuel-efficient compounding and an upgraded casing platform. The five rib tread pattern, including a straight groove bottom design, promotes even wear and high removal mileage. Additionally, the grooves feature pyramidal shaped stone ejectors to prevent stone retention and increase retreadability. The launch of the new General HS tire will begin in May 2015 with the release of the 295/75R22.5 (Load Range H).
The General HD, long haul drive tire, features a deep 32/32nd closed shoulder tread design that offers high mileage and optimal fuel economy while also delivering excellent traction in demanding applications. The proven tread block geometry promotes stiffness in the footprint, which reduces excess block movement leading to lower rolling resistance and improved fuel economy. The launch of the New General HD tire will begin in April 2015 with the 11R22.5 (Load Range G).
The General HT, long haul trailer, tire delivers optimal removal mileage and flexibility through an improved tread pattern. The improved scuff rib protects the sidewalls from curbing and cutting therefore reducing damage to the tire and increasing retreadability. Additionally, this new tire has an innovative stone repellent tread pattern with patented groove technology that leads to minimum stone retention thereby extending casing life. The launch of the new General HT tire will begin in March 2015 with 295/75R22.5 (Load Range G).
