Truck tire upgrades from Hankook

Hankook is further expanding its truck tire business in Europe by upgrading its range of light to medium duty truck tires with a special focus on its patterns AH11 for the steer axle and DH05+ for the drive axle.

During the development phase, Hankook’s engineers focused on a reduction in rolling resistance combined with improved handling, high wet braking abilities and long lasting durability. These tire patterns will be fitted to several Mercedes-Benz Atego Euro VI models in sizes 215/75 R17.5, 235/75 R17.5, 265/70 R19.5 and 285/70 R19.5 depending on the vehicle specification.

Hankook’s AH11 pattern for the steering axle is designed for all round use. It prevents uneven wear and provides enhanced durability. Two-tiered tapered shoulders inhibit wandering. Multi-kerfs on grooves and large-angled groove walls improve handling and stability. Its wide tread design provides outstanding traction in wet conditions.

The Hankook DH05+ has been designed for minimum performance alterations in changing road and weather conditions. The dynamic cross-section pattern design and deep grooves ensure strong traction. A block pattern was applied for even wear. DH05+ also provides excellent driving and braking capabilities on wet roads.
