Hankook Tire recently debuted three new commercial truck tires. Two of the tires are designed for the drive position, while the other is a trailer tire.
Hankook’s SmartFlex DL15 tire is a long- and regional-haul drive tire designed with a self-regenerating siping system that turns out during progressive predictive wear. It also offers improved fuel economy with an updated central rib and semi-block tread pattern, the company says.
A closed shoulder tread design and improved rubber technology helps improve fuel efficiency for the new e3 MAX DL21 long-haul drive tire. The tire’s design is meant to minimize irregular wear of the tire over its lifetime.
Hankook says the e3 WIDE TL21 is a high-mileage trailer tire with Hankook’s new Spiral-Coil technology to provide strong casing durability over the life of the tire.
