Hankook says it designed the SmartCity AU04 for durability and even wear with a core structure and compound that is more heat resistant, which allows for enhanced safety, longer service life on city buses and reduced wear.

According to the company, the tire also includes the following features:

  • An optimized rib spacing arrangement between tread sections in order to provide better fuel efficiency;
  • A multi-purpose performance tread design has been incorporated that combines two different zig-zag groove patterns to improve wet traction and braking;
  • An expanded sidewall protector that gives protection from side impacts; and
  • Hankook Tire’s Smartec technology, which Hankook says utilizes the latest research and development methodologies to enhance product performance in key areas such as wet and dry conditions, durability and safety.

The new AU04 is available now in size 305/70R22.5.
