Hankook Tire announced Monday Hino Trucks and Hino Canada have selected its TBR tires for the U.S. and Canadian markets. The premier medium-duty truck maker will offer Hankook’s regional AH37 and long-haul DL11 tires on its L Series models. 

"As Hino sets the global standard for trucking, it is an indication of Hankook’s leadership in TBR products that our tires will be offered on Hino’s L Series models in the U.S. and Canada,” says Haesik Lee, TB Marketing Director of Hankook Tire America. “Our AH37 regional-haul truck tire and DL11 regional long-haul truck tire have been built to meet the demands of the modern fleet, with durability, fuel efficiency and tread life at their core. We’re confident in the performance of these products to serve Hino’s U.S. and Canadian customers.”

Since its introduction four years ago, Hino’s L Series has been widely accepted across the industry as the premier medium-duty truck series in the U.S. and Canada, built for applications ranging from 23,000 to 33,000 lb., the company says. The L6 and L7 models will be equipped with Hankook’s AH37 regional truck tire, which incorporates structural designs to facilitate lower rolling resistance and potential for fuel efficiency. The AH37 also features 3D Sipe Technology, which offers better traction, increased mileage, and improved tread wear, the company adds. 

Both the AH37 and DL11 are SmartWay verified by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, meaning that their low rolling resistance has been tested to ensure reduced costs and emissions for regional and long-haul trucking, Hankook says.
