regional wear and tear
Oct 16, 2009 8:52 AM
Continental Tire North America Inc has introduced the HDR1 drive tire for sales in the North American market.
The HDR1 (Heavy Drive Regional) integrates tire technologies learned from Continentalís experience in regional applications, including features developed to combat wear and tear often created by rough, unpredictable road conditions. The tire has a proven open-shoulder design that offers excellent wet and dry traction. For regional haul trucks that need a highly resilient tire with long mileage capabilities, the HDR1 offers 28/32nds of tread depth. The tire also maintains a resistance to irregular wear and includes a robust cut- and chip-resistant compound for long, even wear and durability.
The HDR1 also features Continentalís stone ejection technologies that reduce retention of stones and penetrations to the tireís casing. Stone bumpers eject small stones or prevent them from reaching the bottom of the groove, where premature casing damage can start. Even with the addition of the bumpers, the groove bottom of the HDR1 provides sufficient passage for water, ice, and snow.
The HDR1 can be used as an all-position tire and is available in 11R22.5, 11R24.5, 275/80R22.5, and 285/75R24.5 sizes. Visit www.continental-truck.com for more information.
