Hankook’s latest truck and bus radial (TBR) tires, the regional-haul all-position all-season AH32 and long-haul drive-position wide-base e3 WiDE DL12, offer wider contact patches, enabling a higher tread volume. The AH32 features the company’s Innovation Mixing System (IMS) that helps strengthen the bonding force between the compound materials (carbon black and rubber) for a stronger and more durable compound that assists with lower heat generation, as well as a multipurpose performance tread pattern that combines two different zig-zag grooves to help protect against uneven wear, chips, cuts and tearing. The e3 WiDE DL12’s three-dimensional siping and semi-open-shoulder design offers the company’s Spiral-Coil Technology that works to stabilize the tire’s footprint and casing, while the combined structure of the rib and block pattern help improve the tire’s integrity. The AH32 is offered in sizes 385/65R22.5 18PR and 425/65R22.5 20PR, and the e3 WiDE DL12 is offered in size 445/50R22.5 20PR DL12.
