Pirelli launches branded H89 Series tires for steer, drive and trailer axle


Prometeon Tyre Group’s US subsidiary, formerly known as Pirelli Industrial, launched the new H89 Series at the American Trucking Association Technology & Maintenance Council meeting in Atlanta. The Pirelli branded H89 tire series includes dedicated tires for steer, drive and trailer axle and provides improved mileage, traction and road handling in all conditions, even on wet roads, the company stated. The tires are tailored for long haul and regional transport services in the U.S. and Canada.

This is the latest collaborative result of the company’s R&D centers in Milan and Sao Paulo in Brazil. The new H89 series includes technologies such as like Pirelli’s patented Spiral Advanced Technology for Truck that aims to provide long service life and high retreadability; the patented dual layer tread compound technology with high silica content formulation, which ensures low heat generation and rolling resistance, thus enhancing fuel efficiency and long tread life. The bead wrapped chafer (BWC) and fully rubberized cords (FRC) of the belts also ensure casing resistance, the company explained.


The new line includes different tread patterns, specifically designed for each fitment axle: H89 All position, H89 Drive and H89 Trailer: 11R 22.5, 11 R 24.5 and 295/75 R 22.5. The pitch sequence and groove geometry prevents stone trapping and improves water evacuation, while also improving handling, traction and lateral stability on both wet and dry asphalt, according to the company.

All position tires benefit from the patented RSR technology: an innovative shoulder tread contour optimizing the footprint contact pressure and an even wear in the shoulder area. H89 Trailer and Drive feature M+S marking, ensuring grip performance on slippery surfaces. The whole range in sizes 295/75 R 22.5 is EPA SmartWay verified and California Air Resources Board (CARB) compliant. The new products will be progressively available later this year.
